The enzymes and proteins of the fibers of two lines of cotton plant differing in the strength of the fiber have been investigated. It has been shown that the activities of glucan synthetase and peroxidase rise as the fiber matures, while the activities of β-(1-3)-glucanase and cellulase fall. The specific enzymatic activities of peroxidase and glucan synthetase in the L-175 line, distinguished by a stronger fiber, are higher than for the L-466 line with a weaker fiber. The activity of glucanase changes according to the strength of the fiber. In a study of the protein composition of cotton fibers, polypeptides with molecular masses of 28 and 39 kDa were found among the proteins responsible for the strength of the fiber.
