Abstract

The effect of application of α‐tocopherol on the physiology of young rice seedlings (Oryza sativa L. cv. Dunghan Shali) was studied. Application of α‐tocopherol resulted in a growth stimulation of the shoots of 17.5% at the suboptimal 13°/8°C day/night temperature. Growth stimulation was accompanied by stimulation of K+‐uptake of the roots and by stimulation of the Ca2+‐stimulated ATPase activity of the microsomal fraction of the root cell membranes at low temperature in such a way that the non‐linearity (‘broken curve’) of the Arrhenius plot of control plants of this chilling‐sensitive species was absent and replaced by a linear relation, as in chillingresistant species. Application of α‐tocopherol also resulted in increased membrane fluidity, and the data are explained as a structural disordering effect of α‐tocopherol on the cell membranes of the rice seedlings.
