    Notes: Abstract The metabolism of the s-triazine herbicide atrazine has been compared in Zea mays seedlings and cell suspension cultures. The rapid detoxification observed in the shoots of whole plants was not seen in the cultured cells. This difference in metabolism could be accounted for by the varying substrate specificities of the isoenzymes of glutathione S-transferase (EC present in the plant and the cells. A single form of the enzyme isolated from leaf tissue conjugated both atrazine and the chloracetanilide herbicide metolachlor. However, the two isoenzymes present in suspension-cultured cells although active against metolachlor, showed no activity toward atrazine. Following purification, the major form of transferase present in the cells was physically similar to the enzyme isolated from leaf (Mr=55000). Both proteins were dimers of subunit Mr=26300, and with isoelectric points in the range pH 4.3-4.9. The minor form of the enzyme present in culture showed a greater specificity for metolachlor than the major species. In addition the overall activity and ratio of the two isoenzymes varied over the culture growth cycle. These findings illustrate the need for characterizing enzymes involved in herbicide detoxification in plant cell cultures.
