Phenolase Activity In Relation To Seed Viability



Phenolase Activity In Relation To Seed Viability



Plant Physiology 6(1): 127-138



A modification of the Nadi reaction for phenolase determination is described. Phenolase activity was high in young seeds with a high percentage of germination and low in old seeds of low percentage of germination. Enzymatic material heat treated at 25[degree] C. for 90 min. did not show increase in phenolase activity. Phenolase and catalase activity in general were parallel in cucumber and wheat.
