Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of water-soluble proteins from sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) cotyledons, followed by specific staining for superoxide dismutase activity, discriminated, according to their electrophoretic mobility, two distinct achromatic bands for Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase. Zymograms of proteins from isolated chloroplasts showed that the chloroplast-located Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/ZnSODchl) migrated faster in the SOD activity-stained gels. An electrophoretic variant pattern, whose mobility is lower than the control pattern, was identified in the ABA-deficient mutant w-1. The variant is coded by a nuclear gene with two codominant alleles.
