Effect of low light on photosynthesis and membrane-lipid peroxidation of Cucumis sativus seedlings

Effect of low light on photosynthesis and membrane-lipid peroxidation of Cucumis sativus seedlings

Acta Agriculturae Universitatis Henanensis 32(1): 68-72

A study was carried out on the effect of low light on photosynthesis and membrane-lipid peroxidation in cucumber seedlings. Both leaf chlorophyll content and photosynthesis decreased with low light intensity. MDA, the main product of membrane-lipid peroxidation, increased after low light treatment. Peroxidase (POD) activity increased and the isoenzyme pattern changed following treatment, with an increase in the number of bands.
