Late embryogenesis abundant protein
Short name= Protein LEA
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
LEA protein are late embryogenesis abundant in higher plant seed embryos. There are two subsets of LEA proteins (5a, and 5b), the first ones are expressed when the cotyledon weight reach 80 mg and the second set are expressed above 100 mg. The function of those proteins is not known.
