Nitrate reductase activity in gibberellic acid and kinetin treated mustard (Brassica juncea Coss. cv. T-59 ‘Varuna’) seedlings, grown in the presence or absence of light and/or NO3 was investigated. While both light and NO3, alone could induce NR activity, their combination showed additive effects. Kinetin treatment significantly promoted both light- and NO3- induced NR activities, assayed by either in vivo or in vitro techniques, whereas, gibberellic acid was almost ineffective. In the absence… Expand
