The leaves of maize seedlings were used to measure leaf biomass including leaf length, width and weight, and to examine the relationship between nitric oxide (NO) synthase activity in microsomes and cytosol to the exo- and endo-beta-glucanase activity during growth. It was found that ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B radiation) strongly induced nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity but caused both a decrease of leaf biomass and exo- or endo-beta-glucanase activity. In contrast, the NOS inhibitor and… CONTINUE READING
