Comparison of the protein in axillary bud tubers and underground stolon tubers in potato Academic Article uri icon


  • To determine if axillary leaf bud tubers can be used to study tuber protein synthesis in potato we have compared the proteins in axillary bud tubers with those in underground stolon tubers in the variety Superior. By SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and by electrophoresis in nondenaturing polyacrylamide gels at pH 8.6, the proteins in axillary bud tubers appear to be the same as those in underground stolon tubers. The proteins also appear to be immunologically identical based on Ouchterlony double immunodiffusion test and immunoelectrophoresis. 1982 Springer.
