Drought-Induced Changes in Protein Patterns of Brassica napus var. oleifera Roots


Drought-induced changes in two-dimensional silver stained protein patterns of Brassica napus L. var. oleifera M. root system were detected both at quantitative and qualitative levels. Particularly, 13 new polypeptides of low molecular weight were evidenced in the drought-stressed tap root, 12 of which were also present in the short tuberized roots, a specific drought-induced root type. The reversibility of these modifications, observed after 3 days rehydration, suggests that they might be involved in drought tolerance.
