Abstract

Calcium plays an important role in the regulation of plant metabolism and in mediating the adaptation of plants to environmental changes. Some of these functions are mediated through its binding to calcium binding regulatory proteins, the most important among these is calmodulin (CaM). We want to know if CaM has a role in the early stages of seed germination. So we have estimated its content in isolated subcellular fractions and in sections of 36 and 72 hours old embryonic axes germinated in different media: H20-25°C, H20–30°C and ABA-25°C, in order to prove if temperature and germination inhibitors have any effect on CaM levels.
