Contribution of putrescine degradation to proline accumulation in soybean leaves under salinity

Abstract

Proline accumulation was studied in the leaves of Glycine max (L.) Merr. subjected to salt stress in the presence of aminoguanidine (AG, a specific inhibitor of diamine oxidase, DAO) and exogenous putrescine (Put). Both DAO activity and proline content were increased while endogenous Put content was decreased in soybean leaves under 50 to 150 mM NaCl. There… (More)
