Soybean Genetics Newsletter


In dry soybean seed, only one leucine amino peptidase (LAP) anodal band was observed by acrylamide slab gel electrophoresis (Gorman et al., 1983). This band gradually declined in intensity and disappeared in all tissues about 10-12 days after germination. Three mobility variants (Rf's 0.59, 0.53,and 0.58) were observed in the band, which was controlled by a single locus (Gor-man et al., 1983; Kiang and Gorman, 1983; Gorman, 1983).
