Activities of fructan- and sucrose-metabolizing enzymes in wheat stems subjected to water stress during grain filling

  title={Activities of fructan- and sucrose-metabolizing enzymes in wheat stems subjected to water stress during grain filling},
  author={Jianchang Yang and Jianhua Zhang and Zhiqing Wang and Qingsen Zhu and Lijun Leo Liu},
This study investigated if a controlled water deficit during grain filling of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could accelerate grain filling by facilitating the remobilization of carbon reserves in the stem through regulating the enzymes involved in fructan and sucrose metabolism. Two high lodging-resistant wheat cultivars were grown in pots and treated with either a normal (NN) or high amount of nitrogen (HN) at heading time. Plants were either well-watered (WW) or water-stressed (WS) from 9 days… CONTINUE READING
