Electrophoretic analysis of protein systems of Ctenopharyngodon idella (Val.), Hypophthalmichthys nobilis (Rich.) and their F1 triploid hybrid


Electrophoretic analysis was performed on eight protein systems (lactate dehydrogenase, liver esterases, superoxide dismutase, haemoglobin, isocitrate dehydrogenase, glucose‐6‐phosphate dehydrogenase, 6‐phosphogIuconate dehydrogenase, transferrin) in Ctenopharyngodon idella, Hypophthalmichthys nobilis, and their F1 triploid hybrid. The data demonstrated codominant Mendelian inheritance at individual loci for each protein system. Transferrin and superoxide dismutase were the only proteins found to be polymorphic in either parental species. Both parental alleles were present and functional at each enzyme locus examined in the F1 triploid hybrid. Copyright © 1983, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
