Rice glutelins consist of acidic (α) and basic (β) subunits which are further separated into three polypeptide components assigned as α-1, α-2, and α-3 subunit components and β-1, β-2 and β-3 subunit components. Nine rice mutant lines with a decreased amount of the glutelin α-2 subunit component (α-2L) were obtained by screening about 6,800 potential mutant lines derived from the fertilized egg treatment with N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (MNU) using the SDS-PAGE method. The mutants were classified… CONTINUE READING
