Table 1: Effects of NaCl-treatments (150 mM) on reduced ascorbate (AsA, mol g−1 FW), redox state of ascorbate (AsA/AsA + DHA), activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD, U min−1 mg−1 protein), ascorbate peroxidase (APX, nmol AsA oxidized min−1 mg−1 protein), and catalases (CAT, nmol H2O2 degraded min−1 mg−1 protein) in leaves of control and six treated genotypes [varieies B1, BioL-212, PUSA-90-2, WBK-CB-14, and two mutant lines, namely, Lathyrus resistant mutant 3 (LR3) and Lathyrus resistant mutant 4 (LR4)] at control (0) and 15, 30, and 60 days after commencement of treatment (DAC) of Lathyrus sativus L.

Data were presented as means ± SE of four replicates. Different small letters in each row indicate significant differences among genotypes and letters with prime in each column indicate significant differences among treatments (for a particular trait) at by ANOVA followed by Duncan’s multiple range test. Controls of each genotype exhibited nonsignificant ( ) differences and thus mean of all controls is presented here.
