The effect of osmotic-, heat- and salinity-stress on accumulation of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) in the germinating embryos of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was studied. Imposition of different stresses correspondingly resulted in differential enhancement in WGA levels; the effect being maximum during the initial 4 h period. Exposure of germinating embryos to salt-stress resulted in highest accumulation of WGA. Our studies suggest that WGA enhancement in the germinating embryos appears to be a general stress response, and is differentially regulated by different stress conditions.
