Abstract:

Electrophoresis for SDS-proteins and isoenzymes were applied to investigate the genetic variability within the tropical grasshopper Poecilocerus bufonius inhabits Saudi Arabia. Samples were selected from different localities that are encompassing the Sarawat mountains in the west and An-Nafud desert in the north and middle. A range of 2 to 14 protein bands were recorded in the studied samples as measured by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, from which only two were common. The maximum number of protein bands has been recorded in the samples from the west and the minimum number has been recorded in the samples from the north and middle. Six arbitrary chosen enzymes were examined by native-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
