SEED PROTEIN VARIATIONS IN RADIATION INDUCED MUTANTS OF WHEAT

Published on

Storage seed proteins of nine wheat mutants derived from recurrent irradiation along
with parent 'SHARBATI' were analysed by Sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacryamide
gel electrophoresis (50s-PAGE). Low similarity index (58 to 75) between the mutants
and parent 'Sharbati' revealed a wide variability of electrophoretic pattern of water
soluble protein. (glutenin). Induced mutants possessed identifiable, seedling,
morphological characters lind specific bands of storage protein. These mutants are
important source of breeding materials, specially for improvement of protein quality
of bread wheat.
