Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and thin-layer chromatography were used in the characterization of protein and free amino acid extracts from ten woody trees, herbaceous weeds, and grass species: pine, ash, elm, sycamore and willow (woody trees); chenopod, ragweed and sorrel (herbaceous weeds); and johnson and rye (grasses). There is a positive correlation between atmospheric pollen grains as well as the pollen wall proteins and free amino acids for allergic potentiality. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of acidic proteins demonstrated the heterogeneous nature of the pollen and illustrated systematic differences in protein extracts. Systematic differences were also found between woody and herbaceous plants. Phylogenetic linkages were reflected in the amino acid content of johnson and rye grasses
