INHERITANCE OF SEED STORAGE PROTEINS IN LATHYRUS SATIVUS L.

Published on

SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of Fz seeds of crosses between lines of
Lathyrus sativus showed that legumin mol wt 89 kD-80kD, 64 kD-S7 kD ana 4S
kD-42 kD and vidlin polypeptides mol. wt. 78 kD-76 kD were controlled by
mendelian genes showing codominance. These polypeptide patterns in different
molecular weight regions were analysed for segregation of one with respect to the
other. These were all seen to be inherited together in parental patterns and did not
show any recombinants suggesting thereby that genes for different polypeptides
were closely linked and thus behaved as a single locus.
