Protein analysis of floral organs of some members of solanaceae
- 32 Downloads
Soluble proteins of the floral organs of some solanaceous species were analysed by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. In general, the protein content of anther and ovary was higher than that of the style which was greater than that of sepal and petal. The polypeptide patterns showed that in different species, each organ-type had many common bands, although they were of varying intensity. Also, proteins unique to an organ-type were not always detected in the various species. Some ‘species-specific’ polypeptides were, nevertheless, identified in one or more floral organs of a species.
