Proteolytic enzymes hydrolyze cereal seed storage proteins into small peptides and amino acids, which are very important for seed germination and the malting process. A cysteine-class endopeptidase was purified from 4-d-germinated barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Morex). Four purification steps were used, carboxymethyl cellulose cation-exchange(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) variety identification is important to the malting and brewing industries. Because many new malting cultivars (varieties) are closely related, new and more effective identification techniques are needed. We report on a series of techniques used to convert an RAPD marker to a more stable STS marker that can identify barley Stander(More)
Electric fields are now used extensively for the genetic manipulation of plant cells through protoplast fusion and direct gene uptake. The cost of commercially available electrofusion and electroporation equipment remains prohibitive for many laboratories. This paper describes an electronic apparatus, suitable for the large-scale electrofusion and(More)
