Treatment of barley (Hordeum vulgare) seedlings with 400 millimolar NaCl for 3 days resulted in a reduction in plant growth and an increase in the leaf content in ions (K(+) + Na(+)) and proline. Purified mitochondria were successfully isolated from barley leaves. Good oxidative and phosphorylative properties were observed with malate as substrate. Malate-dependent electron transport was found to be only partly inhibited by cyanide, the remaining oxygen uptake being SHAM sensitive. The… CONTINUE READING
