Three inbred lines of maize, AD-1, AD-7 and AD-19, showed significant differences in their physiological sensitivity to ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS). Among the seedling parameters tested, the width of the leaves was the most sensitive and showed the best correlation with the results obtained at maturity. Plant weight was also a good seedling parameter. The physiological sensitivity to EMS was negatively correlated with alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) activity in the scutellum of the three lines. A possible explanation for this correlation is discussed; however, it may have been due to chance. © 1973.
