Four stages of soybean pod development of four varieties of Glycine max were surveyed for esterase enzymes by starch-gel electrophoresis. Differences in esterase banding patterns occur among the four varieties investigated. Enzyme changes accompanying pod development were observed. Pod collection procedure affected the number of esterase bands visible, with collection in dry ice giving more visible bands than did collection in regular ice.
