Abstract

Nitrate simultaneously induced NADH- and NADPH-nitrate reductase activities in rice seedlings. Chloramphenicol, other organic nitro-compounds such as o-nitroaniline and 2,4-dinitrophenol and nitrite also induced nitrate reductase in rice seedlings. The nitrate- or nitrite-induced nitrate reductase could accept electrons more efficiently from NADH than NADPH. However, when this enzyme was induced by organic nitro-compounds, it could accept electrons more efficiently from NADPH than NADH.
