Mass Isolation of Viable Wheat Embryos

  title={Mass Isolation of Viable Wheat Embryos},
  author={F. B. Johnston and Herbert B. Stern},
COMMERCIAL wheat germ has been a material of choice for biochemical studies ever since its use in the isolation of cytochrome c and cytochrome oxidase1. For purposes of physiological research, however, the commercial product has a serious limitation, namely, its non-viability. Samples of commercial material were tested for viability by sprinkling the germ on agar plates, or on filter paper moistened with glucose solution. Less than 0.5 per cent of the embryo-like particles showed signs of… CONTINUE READING
