Definitive Seed Proteins Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Seed Proteins
edited by Peter R. Shewry and Rod Casey

Seed Proteins is the most comprehensive and detailed account of seed proteins so far published and the first dedicated volume for a number of years.

Seed Proteins covers the major storage protein groups (prolamins, 2S albumins, 7Sglobulins, and 11S globulins), focusing on those present in crops. It also covers other widely distributed groups of proteins including:

  • lectins
  • inhibitors
  • antifungal proteins
  • thionins
  • oil body protein (oleosins)

The breadth of coverage of the proteins is wide, including their

  • structures and properties
  • evolutionary relationships
  • classical and molecular genetics and mechanisms of synthesis
  • trafficking and deposition within the cells
