The polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic patterns (electrophoregrams) of the gliadins from 88 U.S. wheat cultivars were determined and cataloged. The cultivars were those grown on the largest acreages---each cultivar on 130,000 acres (0.2% of the total U.S. wheat acreage) or more---in 1979. The 88 cultivars comprised 89.3% of the 1979 acreage. The following classes and numbers of wheats were investigated: 37 hard red winter, 17 hard red spring, 12 soft red winter, 14 common white, one white club, and seven durum. Most of the cultivars were readily differentiated by their electrophoregrams. Some very closely related cultivars gave identical patterns and were thus not uniquely identifiable by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
