Abstract

The present study deals with germination, seedling growth and antioxidative enzymes and free proline, soluble protein, MDA content in seedlings of 7 days old Brassica juncea L. plants under different concentrations of lead (Pb). We used five varieties of mustard viz. MAYA, NRCDR-02, DRMRIJ-31, RH-0406, NRCHB-101. Lead decreased the percentage of germination and seedling growth of all the five varieties of mustard. Pb stress treatment increased the activities of antioxidative enzymes such as peroxidase [EC 1.11.1.7]; superoxide dismutase [EC 1.15.1.1] and ascorbate peroxidase [EC 1.11.1.11] and decreased in catalase [EC 1.11.1.6]
