Protein extracts were obtained from Arabidopsis thaliana seeds (extract), beside recombinant AtLEA4-5 loaded in indicated amounts. Following extraction buffer was used: 0.7 M sucrose, 0.5 M Tris-base, 30 mM HCl, 50 mM EDTA, 0.1 M KCl, 2% β-mercaptoethanol, 12 mg/ml poly-vinyl-poly-pyrrolidone (PVPP). This buffer was complemented with 2mL of equilbrated phenol before extraction. Samples were centrifuged and the protein phase was recovered; the extracted proteins were precipitated with 0.1 m ammonium acetate dissolved in methanol, centrifuged and the pellet washed with cold (-20°C) 80% acetone. The protein pellet was dissolved in SDS-solubilization buffer (1% CHES, 2% SDS, 2% ß-mercaptoethanol, 10% glycerol). Thirty µg of seed protein extract was denatured with Laemmli buffer at 95 °C for 5 min and proteins were separated on 15% SDS-PAGE and blotted 1.5 h to nitrocellulose membrane in a liquid transfer system. Blots were blocked with 2% skim milk ON at 4°C with agitation. After rinsing with TBS, blots were incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:1 000 (anti-AtLEA4-5) for 3h at 4°C with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly, then washed once for 15 min and 3 times for 5 min in TBS-T at 4°C with agitation. Then, blots were incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse-radish peroxidase conjugate) diluted to 1:25 000 in for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 2 min with chemiluminescent detection reagent. Exposure time was for 30 seconds.

30 μg of total seed protein isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana dry seeds and seeds germinating for 24h, extracted with a buffer containing urea, thiourea, CHAPS and Triton X-100 (Heidorn-Czarna et al., 2018) were denaturated with Laemmli buffer at 95°C for 5 min and separated on 12% SDS-PAGE. Afterwards the gel was blotted for 30 min to PVDF membrane using semi-dry transfer (Trans-Blot Turbo, Bio-Rad). The efficiency of transfer was confirmed by staining of the membrane with Coomassie solution. Blot was blocked with 5% milk in TBS-T for 1h at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody (anti-LEA4-5, AS13 2758A) at a dilution 1:1000 in 5% milk in TBS-T for 1.5h /RT with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed once for 15 min and 2 times for min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in Agrisera secondary antibody (goat anti-rabbit IgG, HRP-conjugated, AS09 602) diluted to 1:20 000 in 5% milk in TBS-T for 1h/RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed with chemiluminescent detection reagent, using GBox imager (Syngene). Exposure time was: 3 minutes.

LEA (Late embryogenesis abundant) proteins are very hydrophilic proteins, described over 25 years ago as accumulating during late stages of plant seed development. Found in vegetative plant tissues following exposure to environmental stress. Synonymes: Putative late embryogenesis abundant protein LEA.
