Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

The effect of sodium fluoride (0.1, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1 mM NaF) was studied on germination behaviour, membrane stability and some biochemical parameters in in-vitro grown seedlings of Vigna radiata L. After 7 days of treatment germination percentage, root length, shoot length, vigour index, percentage of chlorophyll stability index (CSI), membrane stability index (MSI) and soluble protein content were decreased in seedlings under fluoride stress. Sodium fluoride (NaF) treatment resulted in a significant enhancement of osmolytes such as proline and total soluble sugars content. Thus, the results of this experiment indicate that NaF disturbed the seed germination, seedling growth and membrane stability whereas, increased proline and carbohydrates in Vigna seedlings.
