The involvement of wheat and common bean lectins in the control of cell division in the root apical meristems of various plant species

Abstract

The effects of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) and phytohemagglutinin (PHA) at the concentration of 1 mg/l on the rate of cell division in the root apical meristem of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), rice (Oryza sativa L.), and common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) seedlings were compared. WGA enhanced cell division in the roots of barley and rice approximately similarly as in wheat roots but did not affect division of meristematic cells in the roots of common bean seedlings. In contrast PGA enhanced mitotic activity in the root apical meristem of common bean seedlings but did not affect division in the wheat and barley roots. Seedling treatment with lectins shifted the hormonal balance in them toward accumulation of growth activators (IAA and cytokinins). The relationship between lectin and hormonal systems in the control of cell division is discussed.
