Proteins in feeds are composed primarily of four types: albumins, globulins, prolamines, and glutelins. Albumins and globulins are usually more soluble than prolamines and glutelins (Sniffen, 1974). Cereal grains contain more glutelins and prolamines, whereas leaves and stems are rich in albumins (Sniffen, 1974). Generally about 65% of the protein fractions in feeds are made up from these four protein types plus NPN. The remaining insoluble N would include protein bound in intact granules of cereal grains, most of the cell wall associated proteins.
A cell wall proteome has been proposed for the oomycete Phytophthora ramorum, the causal agent of sudden oak death, in order to study its pathogenic factors [60]. This study showed an inventory of cell wall-associated proteins based on MS sequence analysis. Seventeen secreted proteins were identified by homology searches. The functional classification revealed several cell wall-associated proteins, thus suggesting that cell wall proteins may also be important for fungal pathogenicity.
