EFFECT OF IODINE ON NON-ENZYMATIC ANTIOXIDANT LEVELS OF GLYCINE MAX L. GROWN UNDER HEAVY METAL AND HEAT STRESS
Objective: The present research work was designed response of iodine on non-enzymatic antioxidant levels grown under heavy metal and heat stress in soybean.
Methods: Soybean seeds exposed to different concentrations three of which were applied in increasing doses of IO3âˆ’ (20, 40 and 80 ÂµM as KIO3-) with Heavy metal and Heat stresses were subjected to analysis of non-enzymatic biochemical parameters including ascorbic acid, proline, glutathione,Â using the standard protocols.
Results: TheÂ applicationÂ ofÂ IO3âˆ’ canÂ improveÂ theÂ levels of non-enzymatic antioxidant levelsÂ toÂ severe cadmium chloride and Heat stressÂ inÂ soybean seedsÂ (Glycine max L). Our study recommends thatÂ IO3âˆ’ couldÂ beÂ considered aÂ possibleÂ beneficialÂ elementÂ toÂ counteractÂ theÂ harmfulÂ effectsÂ ofÂ Â cadmium chloride and heat stress.
Conclusion: Our study recommends thatÂ IO3âˆ’ couldÂ beÂ considered as aÂ possibleÂ beneficialÂ elementÂ toÂ counteractÂ theÂ harmfulÂ effectsÂ ofÂ Â cadmium chloride and heat stress.
