The effect of salinity on leaf superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity of lemon trees of different rootstock-scion combinations was studied. In leaves from Citrus limonum cv.Verna scions on Citrus macrophylla and C. reticulata rootstocks, salinity treatment clearly caused a significant depression in both Fe-SOD and Mn-SOD activities and an increase in Cu,Zn-SOD activity. However, in leaves from Citrus limonum on Citrus aurantium rootstook, the reduction observed in the activity values of Fe-SODs… CONTINUE READING
