Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This is a chapter for book entitled "Soybeans: Genetics, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology". The chapter deals with soybean proteins and the genes that encode them. These include the seed storage proteins (glycinin and beta-conglycinin), protease inhibitors (Kunitz and Bowman-Birk), lectin and urease. Useful basic information about each of these proteins is summarized and the interested reader is directed to referenced material fo more detailed information. Also described are developmental information related to seed protein and soil composition, and the genes involved and their regulation. This up to date review will be useful to specialists interested in seed proteins.
