Abstract

Using the inhibitory analysis, we demonstrated that 0.3 M NaCl and 3.7 μM ABA induced wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) accumulation in 4-day-old wheat (Triticum aestivum) seedlings under conditions of suppressed transcription and translation owing to some rapid mechanisms controlling the level of this protein. Exogenous WGA could protect wheat seedlings against salinity by preventing the salt-induced inhibition of mitotic activity in the apical root meristem.
