Summary of "Molecular characterization of a thaumatin-like protein PR-NP24 in tomato fruits."

Pathogenesis-related proteins play significant roles in plant responses to pathogen infection and environmental stresses. PR-5 proteins are thaumatin-like proteins (TLPs) and can improve plant resistance to diseases. In this study, a protein named PR-NP24 belonging to the PR-5 family was found to be specifically expressed in tomato exocarp. Subsequently, PR-NP24 and orthologous TLPs were identified in partial Solanaceae species. The differential expression patterns of the PR-NP24 protein in exocarp of tomato were further analyzed, which resulted in a better understanding of PR-NP24 regulation in plant responses to the abiotic and biotic stresses. Accumulation of PR-NP24 induced by salt (NaCl) treatment could promote plant resistance against invasive fungal pathogens. This study concluded that the regulation of PR-NP24 in tomato exocarp could provide a possible applicability to improve the harvest management of tomato fruits as well as a practical significance of the allergenic potentials in the fruits of other plants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant family of the order Euphorbiales, subclass Rosidae, class Magnoliopsida. Leaves are alternate, simple, and leathery. Fruits are one- or two-seeded capsules or drupes (stony-pitted fleshy fruits).

A heterodimeric protein that is a cell surface antigen associated with lymphocyte activation. The initial characterization of this protein revealed one identifiable heavy chain (FUSION REGULATORY PROTEIN 1, HEAVY CHAIN) and an indeterminate smaller light chain. It is now known that a variety of light chain subunits (FUSION REGULATORY PROTEIN 1, LIGHT CHAINS) can dimerize with the heavy chain. Depending upon its light chain composition a diverse array of functions can be found for this protein. Functions include: type L amino acid transport, type y+L amino acid transport and regulation of cellular fusion.

A heterodimeric protein complex of RNA cap-binding proteins, which binds with high affinity to the 5' MRNA CAP STRUCTURE in the CELL NUCLEUS. The complex contains two subunits, one of 80-kDa molecular weight and another of 20-kDa molecular weight.

Proteins which bind with RETINOL. The retinol-binding protein found in plasma has an alpha-1 mobility on electrophoresis and a molecular weight of about 21 kDa. The retinol-protein complex (MW=80-90 kDa) circulates in plasma in the form of a protein-protein complex with prealbumin. The retinol-binding protein found in tissue has a molecular weight of 14 kDa and carries retinol as a non-covalently-bound ligand.

Procedures by which protein structure and function are changed or created in vitro by altering existing or synthesizing new structural genes that direct the synthesis of proteins with sought-after properties. Such procedures may include the design of MOLECULAR MODELS of proteins using COMPUTER GRAPHICS or other molecular modeling techniques; site-specific mutagenesis (MUTAGENESIS, SITE-SPECIFIC) of existing genes; and DIRECTED MOLECULAR EVOLUTION techniques to create new genes.
