NICKEL ENHANCES CARBONIC ANHYDRASE ACTIVITY AND CARBOHYDRATE CONTENT IN WHEAT SEEDLINGS

S. Singh, N. A. Khan, M. Khan and Samiullah

Abstract

The effect of electroplating industry effluent on a-amylase activity, carbonic anhydrase activity and shoot carbohydrate content in wheat (Triticum oestivum L.cv.HD-2204) seedlings were investigated. Activities of a-amylase and carbonic anhydrase and carbohydrate content increased slightly at lower concentration of Ni (0.4066 and 4.06614/m1). The effects of nickel from industrial effluent were confirmed with another study using nickel sulphate solution as a source of Ni.The effects of nickel in both the studies were similar.
