Research Notes : United States : Screening of the USDA Glycine soja collection for urease variants
Two isozyme variants of seed urease are present in soybeans. These variants are referred to as electrophoretically fast and slow on polyacrylamide gels (Buttery and Buzzell, 1971; Polacco and Havir, 1979). Kloth and Hymowitz (1985) demonstrated that the urease isozymes are codominantly inherited. They assigned the gene symbol Eul-a to the slow-moving allele and Eul-b to the fast-moving allele.
