Abstract Oleosins stabilize oil bodies in seeds and other tissues and contain a unique hydrophobic domain which appears to be inserted into the oil matrix as an alpha-helical hairpin. The oleosin proteins may be exploited to stabilize emulsions while the ease of oil body preparation has led to the expression of bioactive proteins as oleosin fusions in molecular farming.
