Abstract: SUMMARY Five fractions of parenchymatous cells of the cotyledon of the peanut were isolated by homogenization and differential centrifugation from nonaqueous media. These are two protein‐rich fractions (one of which appears to be aleurone grains), starch grains, a fines material, and cell wall fragments. In addition, a fraction composed largely of vascular tissue of the cotyledon was isolated. The nitrogen of the cell is concentrated in the two protein‐rich fractions, phytin in the aleurone grains, sucrose mos…
