Polyphenoloxidase and peroxidase enzymes were extracted and the isozyme banding pattern was studied in twelve south Indian tea clones of Camellia species conserved an ex situ gene bank. Banding pattern exhibited variations at inter specific and clonal level. A maximum of 6 isozymes were observed for polyphenol oxidase in UPASI 2 clone and a minimum of 3 in the clone BSS 1. Peroxidase isozyme exhibited two bands in all the clones with variation in its mobility (Rf). Isozyme profile of polyphenol oxidase and peroxidise in few clones have shown unique pattern not detected in others. The isozyme profile of PPO indicates that the clones of the respective Camellia species are more similar than those of the other species. In the present study, isozyme banding pattern was compared among the Camellia species to understand the existing inter and intra clonal relationship.
