NABIYEVA, Z., P. MERDZHANOV, М. ANGELOVA-ROMOVA, M. ZLATANOV, G. ANTOVA, A. STOYANOVA, M. KIZATOVA and G. KARADJOV, 2013. Lipid composition during the germination of Kazakhstan maize hybrid. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 19: 775-779
The chemical composition of the oil germination of Kazhastan maize hybrids was investigated. The main components in the triacylglycerol fraction were oleic (61.9 – 64.0%) and palmitic (21.9 – 23.1%) acids. γ-Tocopherol (66.3 %) predominated in the tocopherol fraction, and β-sitosterol (54.8 – 61.2%) and campesterol (27.1 – 30.6%) – in the sterol fraction.
