Survivor: Proteins - The Effects of 2,4-D & Glyphosate on Photosynthetic Proteins of Citrus mitis
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:West Vancouver, BC
School:Collingwood School
Abstract:Will 2,4-D and Glyphosate effect protein levels of Citrus mitis? Herbicides were applied at 0.02% and 0.2% concentrations. Morphological, anatomical, SDS-PAGE, and total protein analyses were conducted. Herbicides caused flowers to fall. 2,4-D caused residue and cellular degradation. ATP synthase rose in affected plants, while other photosynthetic proteins fell.
