Enzymatic activity and gene expression under water stress of phospholipase D in two cultivars of Vigna unguiculata L.Walp. differing in drought tolerance


Phospholipase D, a major lipid-degrading enzyme in plants, was studied in two cultivars of Vigna unguiculata L.Walp, differing in their tolerance to drought (cv. EPACE-1, drought-tolerant, and cv. 1183, drought-susceptible). Enzymatic activities, measured with 14C-PC as substrate, increased when plants were submitted to water stress, the increase being much… (More)
