Effects of Drought Stress on Some Physiological and Biochemical Indexes of Wheat Seedlings

Zhifeng Dong, Hongli Liu, Xiaona Yang


The germination rate of wheat seeds was determined by TTC and eosin staining with wheat seed as experimental material. The activities of antioxidant enzymes (POD) and malondialdehyde (MDA), proline (MDA), and the activities of malondialdehyde (MDA) in wheat seedlings were determined by UV spectrophotometry. (Pro), glutathione (GSH) and H2O2, and the effects of drought stress on these physiological and biochemical indexes were obtained. The results showed that the activities of antioxidant enzymes (POD), malondialdehyde (MDA), proline (Pro), glutathione (GSH) and H2O2 in wheat seedlings increased under drought stress, drought stress, indicating that under drought stress, plants can synthesize their own needs to achieve the above drought to achieve the role of drought and these species can be used as indicators of drought resistance to plant drought evaluation of the plant.
