Abstract

This study was conducted during the season 2020-2021 in the laboratories of the College of Agriculture, the University of Basra, and the Technical Institute of the Southern Technical University to study two types of buckthorn fruits, namely Tuffahi and Earmotiun fruits, and the concentration of GABA was estimated in both varieties before maturity and full maturity. (HPLC) was used to determine the concentration of this vital substance and the results showed the presence of this acid in a higher concentration in the fresh phase of both cultivars, while the concentration of GABA in the pome fruit was higher than in the Emotion fruit. and microorganisms. It has many important and health-promoting functions. There are not many studies about this acid and its presence in plants, so this study aimed to confirm the presence of this acid in the fruits of buckthorn.
