Exogenously added copper does not increase the production of copper amine oxidase in lentil seedlings.

Abstract

The effect of copper ions, the inorganic cofactor of amine oxidase (AO; EC 1.4.3.6), on the production of this enzyme in lentil (Lens culinaris) seedlings was studied. The addition of CuSO4 to the imbibition water during the germination of lentils increased the AO activity. However, the amounts of specific mRNA and protein were not affected by the presence… (More)
