Eye lens proteins of cephalopods were tested by SDS-Page electrophoresis, for their discriminating value at different taxonomic levels. All individuals belonging to the same species (ten species representing five genera) always displayed a certain number of identical bands. The comparison of the electrophoretic patterns obtained with each species allowed discrimination at the different taxonomic levels, from the order to the population. The similarity dendrogram illustrates the discriminating power of the technique. Thus, eye lens protein SDS-Page electrophoresis can be used as an additional taxonomic criterion and appears to discriminate non interbreeding populations.
