Effect of Water Logging on Fatty Acid Composition in Cotton Seedling Roots

Saghir Ahmed Sheikh, Muhammad Ibrahim Keerio, Maqsood Anwar Rustamani and Mohammad Ashraf Mirjat    

Abstract: Fatty acid analysis in cotton seedlings following waterlogging showed changes in both their levels and relative composition. This treatment caused a marked increase in the amount of esterified fatty acids. Waterlogging also enhanced the synthesis of a set of low molecular weight compounds and suppressed the synthesis of all the “normal” fatty acids. A significant increase in free fatty acids was also observed.
