Effects of KCN and Salicylhydroxamic Acid on Respiration of Soybean Leaves at Different Ages.

Measurements of respiration were made on leaf discs from glasshouse-grown soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr. cv ;Corsoy') plants in the presence and absence of cyanide (KCN) and salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM). O(2) uptake by mature leaves measured at 25 degrees C was stimulated by 1 millimolar KCN (63%) and also by 5 millimolar azide (79%). SHAM, an inhibitor… CONTINUE READING
