Species : Prunus dulcis (Almond) (Prunus amygdalus).
Subcellular Localization : Lipid droplet. Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Surface of oil bodies. Oleosins exist at a monolayer lipid/water interface.
Protein Function : May have a structural role to stabilize the lipid body during desiccation of the seed by preventing coalescence of the oil. Probably interacts with both lipid and phospholipid moieties of lipid bodies. May also provide recognition signals for specific lipase anchorage in lipolysis during seedling growth (By similarity).
