Effect of Helminthosporic Root Rot on the Lipid Content in Wheat Seedlings

Effect of Helminthosporic Root Rot on the Lipid Content in Wheat Seedlings The concentration of dry matter and the content of esterified fatty acids in total lipids of roots and etiolated shoots of 3- to 10-day-old seedlings of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) infected with Bipolaris sorokiniana (Sacc.) Schoemaker, the agent of helminthosporic root rot, were determined in the course of germination. At the onset of germination, fungal infection caused a considerable increase in the dry matter concentration in both roots and shoots due to the enhanced mobilization of seed reserves. However, after the 7th day of germination, dry matter concentration fell below the level of noninfected control seedlings as a result of infection. The content of total lipids rose immediately after infection and always exceeded the control index up to the end of germination, in spite of a continuous decrease in this index in both control and infected seedling. It is concluded that an increase in the content of cellular lipids is a characteristic response of both shoots and roots to the root rot infection of wheat seedlings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
