NaCl-Inhibited Chlorophyll Synthesis and Associated Changes in Ethylene Evolution and Antioxidative Enzyme Activities in Wheat

Abstract

Effect of NaCl was studied on chlorophyll (Chl) synthesis and its intermediates (protoporphyrin IX, Mg-protoporphyrin IX, and protochlorophyllide), dry mass, ethylene evolution, and activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase (APX) in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) seedlings at 24, 48, and 72 h after germination. A conspicuous decrease in Chl synthesis, associated with increase in ethylene evolution and SOD and APX activities, was noted as NaCl concentration was increased from 0 to 100 mM.
