For evaluation of changes in leaf protein pattern of wheat, 10 wheat genotypes were assayed under both terminal drought stress and non-stress conditions. SDS-PAGE electrophoresis was used to assess protein pattern of flag leave after applying the stress. As a whole, thirty five protein bands were detected. Most of the bands under the stress conditions were similar to those in non-stress environment and specific bands were rare. Under drought stress, some low molecular weight proteins were intensified, while high molecular weight proteins were faint. Cluster analysis under non-stress conditions classified the wheat genotypes into three groups but in stress environment, the entries were grouped into four clusters.
