Abstract

In this work we present results of two significantly different types of plasma treatment on Paulownia tomentosa Steud. seeds. In the first type, seeds were directly treated in lowpressure plasma and then imbibed with distilled water. In the second type, an atmospheric pressure plasma was used for obtaining plasma activated water (PAW) which is then used for imbibition of seeds. The CAT activity and protein content is evaluated during 4 d following the imbibition process, i.e., immediately after the phytochrome activation and in the 3 subsequent days. Comparison of results of treated seeds to the control group allows to correlate the enzyme activity and protein content during the initial stages of germination with plasma treatment types and treatment conditions
