Embryos of pea (Pisum sativum L. cv Sol) deprived of cotyledons were cultured for 3 days in medium with or without sucrose. Respiratory activity of embryos (intact) as well as the ability to oxidize glutamate by mitochondria isolated from embryos were studied. Respiration of intact embryos grown in sucrose supplemented medium was more intensive than in the starved ones. Transfer of the starved embryos to the sucrose-containing medium induced the increase in the intensity of O2 consumption… CONTINUE READING
