Aluminium Stress Induced Alteration in Seedling Growth and Alleviation in Protein and Amino Acid Contents of Lens culinaris

Rafia Azmat, Sehrish Hasan and Fahim Uddin

Abstract:
The present study was conducted to investigate the growth, synthesis of amino acids and proteins of Lens culinaris under aluminium (Al) stress. Results showed that nutrients disorder were observed with the loss of apical dominance and both lateral and primary roots were stunted and swollen with increasing concentration of Al. All levels of Al reduced the size and weight of roots, shoots and leaves. Al altered both root and leaf architecture. At low concentration of Al, size of leaf was approximately equal to that of control plant whereas at high dose, reduced leaf expansion were observed. Investigations suggest that a number of physiological and biochemical processes in the plant cell have been affected before growth inhibition occurs. It was concluded that Lens culinaris is an aluminium sensitive species.
