Basic scientific achievements

Dynamics of the changes in activities of some C4 enzymes (PEPC, NAD- and NADP-MDH, AspAT, PPDK) was studied in leaves and ear elements of various wheat genotypes. Subcellular distribution of these enzymes, the effect of inhibitors of protein synthesis on biosynthesis and effects of pH on the activities of various enzymes were studied. Effects of drought, salt stress, various temperatures and light intensity on C4 enzyme activities were also studied. PEPC was shown to be more sensitive to the temperature changes compared with other enzymes. It was established that among C4 cycle enzymes only NADP-MDH is activated under the influence of light.  Activities of C4-cycle enzymes were found to increase in leaves and ear elements of bread as well as durum wheat, though this increase is more pronounced in drought tolerant genotypes.
