Effect of Wetting Temperature on Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase Activity in Wheat Embryos.

H. Kott. Copyright 1973 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc. 

The temperature at which dried-wheat embryos are wetted was found to have a considerable effect on glutamic acid decarboxylase activity. Activity levels at 24 and 30 C. were, respectively, 3.42 and 4.11 times higher than in an ice bath. Pyridoxal-5'-phosphate was found to restore activity at low temperatures, while not eliminating the temperature effect completely.
