Rubisco as a Taxonomic Tool in the Genus Erysimum (Brassicaceae)

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


A method is described whereby rubisco subunits can be separated into their polypeptides without preceeding separation steps, using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by isoelectrofocusing. Thus different rubisco polypeptide patterns are obtained for different Erysimum species. No intraspecific variation was observed. This, among other reasons, indicates that rubisco delivers a useful taxonomic tool for investigating the genus Erysimum.
