The aim of this study was to monitor the influence of proline and betaine exposure on antioxidant and methylglyoxal (MG) detoxification system during cold stress in Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze. Cold stress enhanced MG and lipid peroxidation levels in tea bud (youngest topmost leaf). This increase was resisted upon the exposure of tea bud to proline and betaine. Exposure of tea bud with proline and betaine also help in maintaining thiol/disulfide ratio during cold stress. Proline exposure… CONTINUE READING
