An Acid Phosphatase Gene Set (Acph-2) of Common Wheat Orthologous to Acph1 of Aegilops tauschii


A new enzyme-encoding gene set, Acph-2, is reported for common wheat. These genes, orthologous to Acph1 of Aegilops tauschii, encode electrophoretically fast acid phosphatases. The electrophoretic phenotype of Acph-2 is presented.
