Author(s): CHEE Seng Ooi*; KHENG Choo Wooi+; AM Pai Chong*

Starch gel electrophoresis of shoot extracts from plantlets of seven clones of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) was carried out and 12 enzyme systems were examined. Polymorphisms were detected for glutamate-oxaloacetate-transaminase(GOT),isocitrate dehydrogenase(IDH), leucine amino-peptidase (LAP), phosphohexose isomerase (PHI) and shikimate dehydrogenase (SHDH). Within clones, no differences could be detected. Using GOT, IDH, and SHDH as genetic markers, five of the clones could be differentiated, with the remaining two clones showing no isozyme differences between them.
