Abstract

The anaerobic proteins of maize are a set of 10 major and 10 minor polypeptides selectively synthesized in anaerobic seedling roots. 1) Anaerobiosis resulted in the selected labeling of a protein which bound to Blue Sepharose and was eluted by fructose 1,6-diphosphate. 2) This protein elicited antiserum which recognized a single protein with molecular weight of approximately 40,000. 3) By Western blot analysis, this antiserum recognized a maize fructose-1,6-diphosphate aldolase purified to homogeneity. We show that two major anaerobic proteins of maize, ANP35.5 and ANP33A, correspond to a cytoplasmic fructose-1,6-diphosphate aldolase.
