Short Communications


Within one collection of 18 inbred rye lines, seven distinct isoenzymatic patterns of β-amylase were found, and five of them formed a group of similar patterns shifting to distinct positions in the gel. It was proved that the shift of the pattern was due to genetic factors. In crossed immunoelectrophoresis, drastic differences were shown in the quantity of the different β-amylase constituents. No antigenic differences could be demonstrated between the analyzed isoenzymes.
