Activities of Sucrose Synthase and Acid Invertase in Pea Seedling Organs

Activities of Sucrose Synthase and Acid Invertase in Pea Seedling Organs The organ topography of sucrose synthase and soluble acid invertase in pea seedlings at heterotrophic stage (3–14 days) was studied. Sucrose synthase was most active in the roots, with the highest activity on the 6–8th days. In the leaves, its activity decreased from day 3 to day 14. In the stems, sucrose synthase activity was at an invariantly low level. The patterns of sucrose synthase activity in etiolated and green plants were similar. As distinct from sucrose synthase, invertase activity was the highest in the stem, especially in etiolated plants. The peak of its activity was observed on the 6-8th days. In the leaves, invertase activity was lower but its pattern was the same. In the roots, acid invertase activity decreased from the 3rd day and did not depend on illumination. The conclusion is that differences in sucrose synthase and acid invertase activities in roots, leaves, and stem are determined by differences in the import of hydrolytic products of stored compound from the cotyledons as well as by different demands of these organs for these products for the processes of organ expansion and for the maintenance of organ metabolism.
