Abundance of protein content which does not change during temperature treatment is a characteristic feature of temperature-tolerant seeds. The seeds after mechanical drying at 35, 40, 45 and 50 degrees C did not show any difference in number of polypeptides when germination was carried out in room temperature and cold condition. Additional polypeptides shown by SDS-PAGE in Pisum sativum seeds germinated under cold conditions support the view of enhanced synthesis of housekeeping proteins during cold acclimatization. This quality of pea seeds seems to be an ecological adaptation to growth at a wide range of temperature regime.
