Abstract:

The chickpea, Cicer arietinum L. (Family: Fabaceae), is one of the most important legume crop in the world because it has high nutritional value due to high protein content and dietary fiber. Seaweeds are marine algae and they are rich source of highly bioactive secondary metabolites. Therefore, chickpea seedlings were treated with Pterocladia capillacea (S.G. Gmelin) Bornet (Rhodophyta) extract to find out whether this extract can affect growth and defense system of chickpea. The root length, shoot length, number of lateral roots and number of lateral shoots increased under treatment with different algal extracts.  The non-antioxidant compounds including reduced glutathione (GSH), ascorbate, and proline of chickpea seedlings increased under the treatment. Also, the activities of antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (EC: 1.15.1.1), catalase (EC: 1.11.16) and ascorbate peroxidase (EC: 1.11.1.11) increased with different rates. It was observed that the total protein and total carbohydrate contents of Cicer seedlings increased. The rate of increase in the antioxidant system was dependent on extract concentration.
