Abstract

During imbibition and germination of wheat (Triticum aestivum) in the dark over 72 h, activities of the enzymes of the ascorbate (AsA)-dependent H2O2-Scavenging pathway, AsA peroxidase, monodehydroascorbate (MDAsA) reductase, dehydroascorbate (DHAsA) reductase and glutathione (GSSG) reductase as well as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and guaiacol peroxidase were determined both in whole grains and in isolated embryos and endosperm.
