Biochemical and Photosynthetic Evaluation of Responses in Zea mays L . Under Drought Stress

Abstract

Antioxidant defense system(s), pigments content and photosynthetic activity as well as some biochemical changes under drought stress were analyzed in maize (Zea mays L. cv. Giza 21) leaves to determine the response of plant to drought stress and to elucidate the role of various protective mechanisms against oxidative stress. It was found that the… (More)
