Late embryogenesis abundant protein, LEA-25/LEA-D113 (IPR005513)

Short name: LEA-25/LEA-D113

Family relationships



LEA proteins are late embryonic proteins abundant in higher plant seed embryos. They may play an essential role in seed survival and control of water exchanges during seed desiccation and imbibition. Family members are conserved along the entire coding region, especially within the hydrophobic internal 20 amino acid motif. This motif may be repeated.
