Biochemical studies of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) genotypes

Bhavita Gulla, MS Dudhare, AM Misal and MK Ghodke
Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) is an oilseed used in industrial and natural health products. It accumulates many biologically active compounds having strong phytochemicals and antioxidant properties. This study aims to provide an entire portfolio of bioactive compounds present in five different genotypes of flaxseed. Biochemical diversity among these five different types of genotypes with respect to total seed protein, total phenol and total zinc were investigated. According to results total four scorable protein bands were recorded among each linseed genotype by using SDS-PAGE. The dendrogram produced from linseed genotypes show two main clusters and joined together at 0.40 genetic distance level. The second cluster was again divided into two sub-clusters which were joined at around 0.46 genetic distance level. The average similarity percentage was 40%. In sub cluster shows 74% similarity and in second sub cluster two genotypes shows 100% similarity. The highest Phenol content of 0.25 mg/ml was recorded in variety R-II 160-119 Kota Barani (ALSI-4) whereas R-II 160-108 LMS 215-88 recorded lowest content of 0.14 mg/ml. with an average of 0.2 mg/ml. Zinc content was assessed by DTZ method. LMS 215-88 and RLC-4 showed high zinc content, PKDL-166 showed medium zinc content, while ALSI-4 and RMLS-11 appears to be low in zinc content.
