Summary The influence of gaseous 1% sulphur dioxide during 24, 48, 72 and 96 h on saccharide and amino acid content, has been studied on 14–15-day old green and etiolated pea seedlings. In roots and shoots of intoxicated seedlings of both sorts, there was found a marked decrease of sucrose and a marked increase of glucose and fructose content, most probably as a consequence of disturbed sucrose biosynthesis. In cotyledons, roots and shoots there was also found an increase of alanine and a decrease of glutamic acid content.
