Abstract
Zymograpbic patterns have been studied by several workers for various purposes such as genetical and morphological patterns as well as diversity among related species and varieties. The physiological manifestation of any character is attributed to the summation of the total effect of many enzymatic reactions. Mitra (1977) conducted a comparative study of important enzymes in a hybrid cotton variety-"H4" taking ~s that were active during germination, and showed that complimentation of two parents at enzymatic level was expressed in the superiority of hybrid over the parents. Upland cotton is an amphidiploid and each genome exhibited its own banding pattern .. Zymograpbic bands which are dominant in nature (controlled by dominant genes) were expressed in progeny wbile bands of recessive nature are masked in the progeny Zymograpbic pattern. Thus Zymographic banding pattern can be associated with progeny performance particularly for yield. The present investigation was therefore undertaken:
