Plasma membrane (PM) vesicles were isolated from developing embryos of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) with different drought-tolerance under drought stress by the gradient centrifugation method. The activity of the PM H+-ATPase (EC 3.6.1.35) and contents of polyamine conjugated (covalently and noncovalently) to the PM vesicles were investigated. Results showed that after drought treatment for 3 d, embryo relative water content (ERWC), embryo relative dry weight increase rate (ERDWIR) of drought… CONTINUE READING
