The Al-tolerant cultivar TAM202 and the Al-sensitive cultivar TAM 105 of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were exposed to 0, 50, 75, 100 or 150 microM of Al. The absorption of Al by wheat, the growth of root, several key enzymes concerned with C, N and P metabolism, as well as key constituents of antioxidant system, were investigated. The results showed that TAM105 absorbed more Al than TAM202 and its root growth (presented by the length) was inhibited more severely. The root growth was most… CONTINUE READING
