Contribution of Oxidative Stress to the Development of Cold-Induced Damage to Leaves of Chilling-Sensitive Plants: 3. Injury of Cell Membranes by Chilling Temperatures

Contribution of Oxidative Stress to the Development of Cold-Induced Damage to Leaves of... Changes in permeability of cell membranes (judged from electrolyte leakage) were examined on leaves of 7- to 11-day-old seedlings of maize (Zea mays L.), cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.), millet (Panicum miliaceum L.), and on etiolated shoots of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) immediately after cooling plants for 1–24 h at 2°C and one day after a 24-h chilling treatment. A gradually increasing leakage of ions from the cells was observed upon prolongation of chilling exposure, with the maximum attained by the end of 24-h chilling treatment. The leakage of electrolyte was slightly reduced in the post-treatment period but it was still higher than the electrolyte leakage from the control samples (untreated plants). The cold treatment of chilling-sensitive plants (but not of potato) revealed a positive correlation between the rates of lipid peroxidation, indicative of chilling injury, and the electrolyte efflux (r = 0.61–0.96). The evaluation of plant susceptibility to injury showed that millet and potato plants recovered from the chilling damage in 24 h after the treatment, whereas maize and cucumber plants did not show such a recovery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
