accumulation in response to Mn nutrition by eight soybean genotypes with [N.sub.2] fixation tolerance to soil drying.
Leaflets were separated from the petiole, oven-dried (40[degrees]C for 2 d), finely ground, and analyzed for ureide
concentration in pod walls from immature plants of Harosoy was about 100-fold greater than in pod walls of the nonnodulated plants (Table 1).
Evaluation of the relative ureide
content of xylem sap as an indicator of [N.sub.2] fixation.
concentration in xylem sap (Serraj and Sinclair, 1996) and stem extracts (de Silva et al., 1996; Serraj and Sinclair, 1996) increases greatly under drought conditions, it is important to establish the relationship between RAU and [N.sub.2] fixation under water-limited conditions.
The possibility of differing catabolic enzymes for allantoic acid leading to differences in [N.sub.2] fixation sensitivity to water deficits opens the possibility of genotypic segregation based on ureide
There are at least two possible hypotheses based on degradation of ureides
in the leaves as water deficits develop to explain the low ureide
concentrations in Jackson.
Response of leaf ureide
concentration to main effects of cultivar and fraction transpirable soil water (FTW) in the nodule size experiments.
(1996) proposed an index based on ureide
levels per unit petiole dry weight.
We hypothesized that the decrease in [N.sub.2] fixation during water deficit was associated with ureide
accumulation in shoots.
Water deficit in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] results in the accumulation of the products of [N.sub.2] fixation (ureides
) in shoots, and this may lead to feedback inhibition of [N.sub.2] fixation.
