Pea cultivars Progress and Nugget have been shown previously to be differentially sensitive with respect to apparent photosynthesis in a short-term exposure to 0.8 μl/l SO2. One possible contributing factor to the relative insensitivity of apparent photosynthesis of Progress to SO2 is an increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities. We show here that both chloroplastic and cytoplastic Cu,Zn-SOD proteins increased in Progress on exposure to sulfur dioxide whereas both proteins decreased in… CONTINUE READING
