The storage protein composition of 61 accessions of Triticum dicoccum was analyzed by SDS-PAGE (HMW- and LMW-glutenin subunits) and Acid-PAGE (gliadins). In the HMW-glutenin subunits, four allelic variants at the Glu-A1 and eight at the Glu-B1 locus were detected resulting in a total of 17 patterns. The Glu-B1 locus was found to be more polymorphic than the Glu-A1 locus. Interestingly, the presence of HMW subunits like 13+16, 2∗ and 1 associated with good quality was observed. Three accessions… CONTINUE READING
