Abstract:
A research investigation focused on understanding the defense enzymes and protein activities in post-rainy sorghum and their role in resistance against shoot fly. Total soluble protein and chlorophyll content were found to be higher in susceptible genotypes Swarna and DJ-6514 as compared to resistant RSV-2432 and RSV-2391 genotypes. Enzymatic activity of polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase enzyme has been observed higher in the resistant parents than susceptible parents. RSV-2432 and RSV-2391, exhibit higher activity of peroxidase and polyphenol oxidase enzymes. This suggests that plants having higher activity of peroxidase and polyphenol oxidase enzyme shows resistance mechanism.
In a sorghum shoot fly resistance breeding program, using biochemical characters as marker traits can be a valuable strategy to broaden the genetic base and increase the level of resistance.
