Stimulation of ribonuclease activity and its isoenzymes in germinating seeds of cowpea (Vigna sinensis) by gibberellic acid and adenosine-3′,5′-cyclic monophosphate

  • H. C. Kapoor

Application of GA3 and cyclic AMP to cowpea seedlings caused a 2–3 fold stimulation of RNAase activity, together with the augmentation of RNAase isoenzymes. Inhibitor studies indicated the requirement of fresh RNA and protein synthesis for enzyme stimulation.
