Effect of Salt (NaCl) and heavy metals (Pb and Co) was studied on the activities of certain enzymes and proline content in young leaves of Paspalum scrohiculatum. Salt and heavy metals used, in general, favourably modulate the activities of aminotransferases (GPT and GOT), glutamate dehydrogenase (GLDH) and malate dehydrogenase. Proline content was found to be much higher than control values.
