Abstract

The storage proteins of seeds from a range of species of grasses have been extracted and examined by IEF. The resultant “fingerprints” or protein profiles show them to be reproducible using seeds from the same source and, in most cases, for seeds obtained from different sources. Experimental technique can alter the profiles obtained and these problems are discussed. It has been shown that the profiles can be used to differentiate at generic and species level, using only single seeds.
