Comment
Glutenins are heterogeneous mixtures of proteins comprising subunits linked by disulphide bonds. 'A' are high-molecular-weight (HMW) and 'B', 'C' and 'D' are low-molecular-weight (LMW) subunits.
The nomenclature for glutenin subunits listed in the Catalogue of Gene Symbols for Wheat (9441) is that devised in 796; however, an alternative system based upon molecular weight was proposed in 753.
The symbol Glu-2, formerly used to identify a prolamin locus in 1BS (420), is obsolete (792). See Gli-3.
