Comparative Study of Protein Profiles of the Leaves of Wild Manihot glaziovii Mueller and the Cultivated Species, Manihot esculenta Crantz by SDS-polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis
A.E. Folorunso, O.A. Awelewa and I.O. Adewale

Abstract:
Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was conducted on leaf protein extracts of Manihot esculenta and the wild relative, Manihot glaziovii. Manihot esculenta recorded the highest number of protein bands which might be from the past hybridizational processes which had taken place between it and the wild relatives, among which is Manihot glaziovii. In order to further increase the protein content of the edible Manihot esculenta, the two protein bands between 5.0 and 5.9 cm characteristic of Manihot glaziovii, as revealed in the rod gels, by electrophoresis, could be transferred to Manihot esculenta through hybridization. It is also possible that in the process, resistance to insects, diseases and drought may be transferred.
