Submergence induces rapid internodal elongation in deep-water rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. Habiganj Aman II). We investigated the metabolic activities which help to support such fast growth. Three days of submergence in water under continuous light led to the mobilization of 65% of the starch from those regions of rice internodes which had been formed prior to submergence. Disappearance of starch was accompanied by a 70-fold enhancement of amylolytic activity. Similar increases in amylolytic… CONTINUE READING
