Abstract

The Cercospora elicitor induced activity of chitinases and β-1,3 glucanase was analyzed in seven cultivars of Vigna radiata differing in their resistant status. The hydrolases i.e. chitinases and β -1,3-glucanases were found to be induced in all seedling parts and calli. The activities of these enzymes were higher in resistant cultivars. The maximum activity of glucanase and chitinase was observed in cotyledons. The induced activity of these enzymes was found to be associated with resistant status of mungbean cultivars.

Keywords: Vigna radiata, Cercospora canescens., chitinases. β -1, 3 glucanases.
