Total protein content and level of 14 amino acid in mature acorns of 20 Quercus taxa from Turkey were studied. The range of total protein amounts between 2.75 and 8.44% were detected among taxa. Similar values in related species and variety level were observed. The amino acid profiles for each taxon were characteristically different and high variability of… (More)
