2nd International Triticeae Symposium

Diversity of trypsin inhibitors was studied in 35 spring barley cultivars (Hordeum vulgare), 21 samples of H. spontaneum, and 3 samples of H. agriocrithon. Six variants of trypsin inhibitor spectra were identified by native electrophoresis method followed by specific development of activity. Four variants were found in both cultivated and wild barley, and the other two were revealed only in H. spontaneum. Trypsin inhibitor activities (TIA) and soluble protein contents were determined in four cultivars with different variants of trypsin inhibitors. It was shown that TIA differed in the cultivars studied and did not correlate with soluble protein contents.
