Methionine Content of Cereals and Legumes

  title={Methionine Content of Cereals and Legumes},
  author={M. N. Rudra and L. M. Chowdhury},
THE methionine content of cereals and legumes widely used in India has been measured. Determinations were made with a Lumetron photo-electric colorimeter using the sodium nitroprusside method of McCarthy and Sullivan1 as modified by Csonka and Denton2, and further modified by us3. The values shown in the accompanying table give the mean of at least two determinations. It is seen that the vetch pea is very poor in methionine content. The relationship between this very low methionine content of… 
The amino‐acid composition of some pakistani pulses
A sample of horsebean (Vicia faba L.) was analysed for its amino-acid contents, by chromatography on buffered filter paper. The results were in general agreement with those obtained by
Overexpression of serine acetyltransferase in maize leaves increases seed‐specific methionine‐rich zeins
The efficacy of increasing maize nutritional value by SAT overexpression without apparent yield loss is demonstrated, and SAT overcomes the shortage of S‐amino acids that limits the expression and accumulation of high‐Met zeins during kernel development.
Protein and lipid constitution of some Pakistani pulses
Nineteen fatty acids have been determined by gas chromatography in the light petroleum extracts of five species of pulses commonly grown in West Pakistan. The dispersion of the nitrogenous
