Abstract: There are strong theoretical indications that the minority valence quark distributions in the nucleon may break charge symmetry by as much as 3-5%. We show that a comparison of e ± D deep inelastic scattering through the charged current, for example at HERA, could provide a direct test of this effect. This measurement is also be sensitive to an intrinsic component of the strange quark sea which leads to s ≠ s̄. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
