Abstract

Quality protein maize (QPM) nutrient evaluation proved that, it is superior over non- QPM cultivars for utilization of live stocks and human beings. Zeins are the main protein component of seed stores in maize. α, β, γ, and δ are sub families of the zeins. In these αzeins are important prolamin sub unit in maize. Quality protein maize cultivars having hard kernel and high amount of lysine & tryptophan are due to combination of o2 (opaque-2) allele with genetic modifiers possessed by breeding. QPM varieties have double amount of lysine and tryptophan than normal maize varieties. QPM helps in the reduction of malnutrition problem in the humans and increase the live stocks, poultry production.

Key Words

Quality protein maize, opaque 2, Nutrition benefits of QPM, Essential amino acids.
