Organization of Soybean Seed Protein Genes and Their Flanking Regions
In this paper we review briefly the research which has been carried out in our lab on the organization of soybean seed protein genes. The genes which we have concentrated our efforts on encode the storage proteins glycinin and β-conglycinin, the Kunitz trypsin inhibitor, seed lectin, and an unidentified 15,500 dalton protein. We are investigating these genes in order to understand the molecular events which regulate gene expression during plant development. Our long term objective is to utilize this information to improve crop plants by molecular genetic engineering procedures.
