The effect of cyanide, SHAM and azide on the germination and respiration of Citrullus lanatus seeds



The effect of cyanide, SHAM and azide on the germination and respiration of Citrullus lanatus seeds



South African Journal of Botany 52(1): 77-80



Little is known about the respiratory metabolism of these lipid-rich seeds during germination, although lipoxygenase activity was not detected in preliminary experiments. Cyanide, azide and SHAM (salicylhydroxamic acid) at 1 mM/litre all inhibited germination to varying degrees. Azide was more effective than cyanide at inhibiting germination, but both inhibited oxygen uptake to the same extent for the first 30 h of incubation.
