The different total protein polymorphism profiles attributing to mantling morphologies with different severity (50% versus 100% mantled) were successfully shown for the leaves, fruits, and florets of the 100% mantled, 50% mantled, and phenotypically normal trees.
Although those seven and those two protein bands were present in the phenotypically normal fruits and florets (Table 1), respectively, their absence in the mantled fruits and florets indicated that the mantling phenomenon occurs in the absence of certain proteins resulting from gene repression during protein synthesis which correlated with the findings by
This hypothesis was supported by the different HDAC activity shown by the nuclear proteins of mantled and phenotypically normal leaves.
