Abap1 Docking Protein


A docking protein designated as DP1, for binding to an abscisic acid-binding protein designated as ABAP1, whereby ABAP1 is anchored to the plasma membrane of a plant cell in the absence of ABA, and regulating signal transduction in the presence or absence of ABA. A method for controllably modulating delivery of lytic proteins to lytic vacoules contained within plant cells thereby controllably affecting at least one of seed development, seed maturation, seed quality, germination vigor, vegetative growth, and flowering. The method comprises the steps of preparing a nucleotide construct comprising the nucleotide sequence encoding the DP1 protein, stably introducing the nucleotide construct into the genome of a recipient cell from a seed-producing plant, culturing the transformed recipient cell into a whole plant and producing mature seeds therein, harvesting the mature seeds, then germinating the seeds and culturing whole plants therefrom.
