Nitrate reductase activity was inhibited as a result of reduced soil moisture potentials or application of NaCI to nutrient solutions. The decrease in enzyme activity of wheat seedlings exposed to salinity, was found 24 hours after exposure to stress. The effect of stress on nitrate reductase was found in cell‐free extracts as well as in riro in assays of intact leaf sections. A recovery in enzyme activity was found after irrigation or after removal of seedlings from salinity. While relative water content of the leaves was restored within 3 hours after removal of stress, full recovery of enzyme activity occurred only after 24 hours. Cycloheximide and chloramphenicol suppressed the activity of nitrate reductase in non‐stressed seedlings, but had no effect on the activity of plants exposed to salinity. However, during removal of stress, cycloheximide prevented completely the recovery of nitrate reductase, while chloramphenicol did not interfere with the recovery of the inhibited enzyme activity. It is concluded that a fraction of nitrate reductase may be located in the cytoplasm and lost activity during stress, probably due to inhibited protein synthesis. Another fraction which may be associated with chloroplasts, was inhibited by stress due to conformational changes or partial denaturation. Copyright © 1974, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
