Protein Profiles of Mannitol-Shocked Soybean Cell Suspension Cultures
Water deficit stress causes numerous cellular and biochemical consequences in plants. When the individual consequences of water stress are expanded to a regional if not global level, they involve periods of drought and concomitantly reduced crop yields. Water deficit stress is induced by the addition of a nonpermeating osmoticum, such as either mannitol or polyethylene glycol (PEG) to the growth medium (Bressan et al., 1981; Bressan, et al. 1982; Handa et al., 1982; Hasegawa et al., 1984; Heyser and Nabors, 1981; Premecz et al., 1978).
