Associations between lipoxygenases (Lox) and 14-3-3 proteins were demonstrated by two different methods. First, immunoprecipitation experiments, using isoenzyme-specific monoclonal Lox antibodies, showed that 14-3-3 proteins co-precipitate with 13-Lox, but not with the 9-Lox from barley. Second, interactions between 13-Lox and 14-3-3 were established by surface plasmon resonance studies, showing that 13-Lox binds with 14-3-3 proteins in a concentration-dependent manner. The interactions between 14-3-3 proteins and 13-Lox may reveal their role during plant development. Copyright (C) 2000 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
