Seed proteins, especially the 7 S phaseolin, have been satisfactorily used to confirm the taxonomic re-arrangement reported by Verdcourt (1970), whereby Phaseolus is divided into two genera, Phaseolus and Vigna. Within the tribe Phaseoleae the genus Phaseolus s.str. has been shown to occupy an isolated position by possessing a serologically different major storage protein. For distinguishing intraspecific taxa the lectins, which are included in the albumin fraction, have proved to be most satisfactory. Thus, proteins have proved to be very valuable for the identification of certain taxa, aiding in establishing relationships, and helping to formulate a satisfactory classification.
