Nitrogen redistribution during grain growth in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

  title={Nitrogen redistribution during grain growth in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)},
  author={Stephen P. Waters and Mark B. Peoples and Richard J. Simpson and Michael J. Dalling},
The activity of a range of endo- and exopeptidase enzymes have been measured in the glumes, flag leaf and stem during the period of grain development in wheat. The enzymes show a sequential pattern of appearance with activity peaks occurring at a number of intervals from anthesis until just prior to the cessation of grain growth. Of the enzymes studied only the haemoglobin- and casein-degrading activity and alanylglycine-dipeptidase activity increased during the period of rapid protein loss… CONTINUE READING
