Effects of 20 nM wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) on relative growth rate, mitotic index (MI) and the cell area in the root extension zone were investigated in seedling of Triticum aestivum L. under the influence of 2% NaCl. It was elucidated that pretreatment of wheat seedling with WGA prevented a salinity induced inhibition of root cell growth, and accelerated the restoration of cell growth after stress removal. The protective WGA effect on root cell growth may be due, presumably, to… CONTINUE READING
