P-protein is also called as phloem protein. For instance the function of the phloem specific PP2 proteins (Phloem Protein 2) that have been described for long in the sieve elements is still unclear.

Unable to display preview. Sequence clusters. Cronshaw J (1970) The P-protein components of sieve elements. Functions. In this study, genus-specific molecular probes were used in combination with intergeneric grafts to reveal the presence of a pool of translocatable P protein subunits. Although thought to be associated with structural P-protein, PP2 is translocated in the assimilate stream where its lectin activity or RNA-binding properties can exert effects over long distances. Borntraeger, Berlin, pp … UniParc. It can also help in the transportation of proteins and mRNAs. Catesson AM (1973) Observations cytochimiques sur les tubes criblés de quelques angiospermes. Tissue Cell 7: 227–242. Introduction The phloem is the major route for the transport of assimilates synthesized during photosynthesis. In: Iqbal M (ed) The cambial derivatives. Phloem protein 2 (PP2) is one of the most abundant and enigmatic proteins in the phloem sap. Part of Springer Nature. Phloem-specific proteins (P proteins) are particularly useful markers to investigate long-distance trafficking of macromolecules in plants. Although thought to be associated with structural P-protein, PP2 is translocated in the assimilate stream where its lectin activity or RNA-binding properties can exert effects over long distances. The main function of the sieve tube is the transport of carbohydrates, primarily sucrose, in the plant. Charakteristisch für Siebröhren sind die sogenannten P-Proteine (P für Phloem). In the middle of the nineteenth century Hartig (1854) observed … One endogenous plant protein, CmPP16, shows sequence homology to viral MPs, is able to bind several RNA molecules including its own mRNA, and facilitates RNA transport from cell to cell by increasing the SEL of PD (Xoconostle-Cazares et al., 1999). P-protein (phloem protein) A protein found in large amounts in the sap-conducting sieve elements of phloem tissue in plants. I. Winteraceae. P-Proteins The P-proteins are phloem proteins whose function is not yet completely understood. Bull Soc Fr Physiol Veg 14:165–73. The overall compositional differences of the two phloem systems strongly indicate functional isolation. Behnke H-D (1974b) Sieve element plastids of the Gymnospermae. They are believed to play in “damage control” when phloem is damaged. We screen heat-stable HMW proteins that have a similar molecular chaperone function. Recent evidence reveals that apart from playing critical roles in RNA metabolism and RNA transport, RBPs perform a key function in plant adaptation to various environmental conditions. Phloem (/ ˈ f l oʊ. Unlike xylem, phloem vessels contain cytoplasm, and this goes through holes from one cell to the next. In this study, a genomic approach was taken to produce a transcription profile of melon phloem sap. The lectins belonging to the PP2 family are among the most abundant and enigmatic proteins in phloem sap. Ø  PP 1 (P protein 1) and PP 2 are the two P proteins of Cucurbits whose structure and mechanism of action were described in detail. non-green parts of plant. This transport process is called translocation. Field-grown Cucurbita maxima cv. These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors.

Although several phloem sap proteins have been identified from protein extracts of heat-treated Arabidopsis seedlings using FPLC gel filtration columns, many of the physiological roles played by these proteins remain to be elucidated. 2. In plants, the vascular system, specifically the phloem, functions in delivery of small RNA (sRNA) to exert epigenetic control over developmental and defense-related processes. Not yet. Cornish-Bowden A (1979) How reliably do amino-acid composition comparisons predict sequence similarities between proteins. Ø  PP 1 is present in all developmental stages of the sieve tubes.

Can J Bot 58: 802–806. 79-115. • AtPP2-A1, Arabidopsis a phloem protein 2-A1 functions as a chaperone. Phloem cells contain specific proteins, some of which may be present in large quantities and visible with both the light and electron microscopes, while others can be demonstrated only with chemical methods such as gel electrophoresis. Sieve tube is an integral component of the phloem which is composed of several sieve tube elements which join end to end to form a channel for conduction. See also phloem.

Sequence archive. Phloem protein 2 from cucumber (CsPP2), a protein whose apparent molecular mass comes close to 26 kDa, was the first endogenous phloem-factor reported to bind viroid RNAs in vitro (Gómez and Pallás, 2001; Owens etal., 2001). The overall compositional differences of the two phloem systems strongly indicate functional isolation. The AtPP2-1 gene was induced by diverse external stresses and was strongly expressed in the leaves.. AtPP2-A1 displayed a significant difference in antifungal activity against a variety of fungi. … Independent of drought, enrichment analysis of the total phloem exudate protein profiles from all samples suggests that the protein content of phloem sap is complex, and includes proteins that function in chaperone systems, branched-chain amino acid synthesis, trehalose metabolism, and RNA silencing. phloem proteins.
