Electrophoretic study of the proteins from actinidia leaves and sex identification

  • R. G. Khukhunaishvili
  • D. I. Dzhokhadze


The protein composition of actinidia (Actinidia L.) leaves has been studied by SDS-PAGE. Specific polypeptides in the protein pattern of male and female plants belonging to two species, A. kolomikta and A. Chinensis, were detected. The potential of biochemical protein markers for identification of plant sex is discussed.
