In young sugar beet plants cadmium suppressed the activity of nitrate reductase, glutamine synthetase and glutamate dehydrogenase, whereas sulphur exhibited a protective role towards activity of these enzymes, except of glutamine synthetase. Protein synthesis was suppressed in the absence of S in nutrient medium; the lowest level was at 10-3 M Cd2+. Chloroplast pigment contents were increased by S while Cd2+, even in the lowest concentration, (10−5 M) showed a repressive effect. The highest… CONTINUE READING
