Abstract: Cape gooseberry is a minor fruit crop and considerable variations have been recorded from the morphotypes collected from seven different districts of Uttar Pradesh, where Cape gooseberry is grown on a commercial level, based on the vegetative parameters and physico-chemical analysis of fruits of Cape gooseberry morphotypes collected from different districts of Uttar Pradesh. However, there was no any research available regarding the molecular level electrophoresis separation of macro molecule of Cape gooseberry leaves, it was the first time when research on Cape gooseberry at molecular level done. Hence, in order to analyse the variability among different morphotypes of Cape gooseberry at the molecular level the three morphotype of Cape gooseberry are grown together at different plots in the field and experiment conducted. After analysis of the photographed gel it was reported that most of the bands were similar and specific bands were rare. High molecular weight proteins were located at the upper portion of the gel; while low molecular weight proteins were located in lower side of the gel. The protein pattern of the three morphotypes (morphotype-1, morphotype-2, morphotype-3) when studied under electrophoresis it was observed that at different kDa the density of bands was found different, it indicates that at particular molecular weight the level of a particular protein of a morphotype may be increases or decreases. The variation was also recorded that at different doses of protein the level of protein among three morphotypes were found different.
