The sucrose cleavage by sucrose synthase (SuSy) and neutral invertase was studied in wheat roots (Triticum aestivum L.) subjected to hypoxia or anoxia for 4 days. By in situ activity staining, increased SuSy activity was observed in the tip region and stele of root axes while the activity of invertase decreased. Cellulose content significantly increased in hypoxically treated roots. The cellulose deposition was correlated with regions of high SuSy activity, being mainly located in the pericycle and endodermis. Invertase activity was distributed along the root without clear difference between cortex and stele. Under root hypoxia, a significant increase in the structural carbohydrates, callose and especially cellulose, was shown. Increasing levels of soluble carbohydrates were partially used to synthesize cellulose for secondary wall thickening and callose to counteract the tissue injury following low-oxygen stress. Under strict anoxia, the roots were much more injured but sustained a high level of cellulose and callose while the soluble carbohydrates almost disappeared.
