Abstract

Germination induces changes in the Bowman-Birk type proteinase inhibitors (BBIs) of horse gram (Dolichos biflorus) at both qualitative and quantitative levels. The original isoinhibitors present in the dry seed almost disappear by the fifth day of germination with the concomitant appearance of two new inhibitor species. The isoinhibitors present in the dry seed are electrophoretically distinct from the isoinhibitors that appear during the early stages of seed development. The two inhibitor species occurring in the early stages of seed development (up to 10 days after flowering) are also present in the flower, husk, and leaf. The two new inhibitor species that appear during the process of germination appear to be electrophoretically similar to the inhibitor species found in the flower, leaf, and early stages of seed development.
