Developmental studies of NAD-malate dehydrogenase isozymes in the cotyledon of cucumber seedlings grown in darkness and in light


The total activity of NAD-malate dehydrogenase (E.C.; MDH) in the cotyledons of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) seeds and seedlings increased 10fold during the first 3 days of germination in darkness and then declined gradually to one third of the peak activity after 10 days. Exposure of the seedlings to light at day 3 sharply reduced the activity to… (More)
