Triticale

Varietal purity determination of TRITICALE proteins using Sepalyte™ pH 3-6 WHEAT/TRITICALE

Differentiation between WHEAT and TRITICALE

In our tests we found:

WHEAT-specific protein marker (not present in triticale) at the acid end pI < 4.0
TRITICALE-specific protein marker (not present in wheat) at the base end pI > 5.0

(alternating left to right: five varieties of WHEAT and five of TRITICALE)
More tests will be done to verify the result !
