Measurement of Cell Membrane Stability Evaluated by Electrolyte Leakage as a Drought and Heat Tolerance Test in Rice ( Oryza sativa L . )

Abstract

To explore possibilities of adaptation of cell membrane stability measurement as a evaluation of drought and heat t,olerance (or injury) in rice (Oi-yzfl sa/irln L.), we have measured electrolyte leakage (EL) from leaf discs exposed to desiccation and temperature stresses. In desiccation test with polyethylene glycol (PEG), EL increased from 10% to 80% with… (More)
