A New Possibility for Nondestructive Protein Content Determinations in Viable Seeds

Volume 36, Number 3 (June 1982) Page 259-260

Rutar, V.

The use of proton-enhanced magic-angle sample spinning 13C NMR for nondestructive protein content determination is discussed and the first spectra of intact viable seeds are shown. The method has great potential value in plant breeding programs, since selection decisions can be based on the properties of individual seeds.
