Abstract:Recombinant SUS1 C-terminal truncations showed that even the first 50 amino acids of SUS1 could bind to microsomes from kernels as well as to cellulose. The secondary structure of the first 50 amino acids of SUS may be causally involved in the binding activities. Taken together, the results presented in this dissertation gave a better understanding of the dynamic regulation of SUS and documented its specific and vital role in plant metabolism.
