This study investigated if some nitrogen (N) compounds commonly used as fertilizers (KNO3, NH4NO3, (NH4)2SO4) cause chlorophyll degradation in the N-tolerant lichen Xanthoria parietina and if polyamines are responsible for the N-tolerance of this species. The results showed that N excess does not cause chlorophyll degradation and suggested the absence of kinetics in the mode of action of the N compounds tested. External supply of inhibitors of polyamine biosynthesis prior to N treatments did not cause any change in the response of chlorophyll integrity, suggesting that at least chlorophyll integrity is not controlled by polyamines.

Abstract

This study investigated if some nitrogen (N) compounds commonly used as fertilizers (KNO3, NH4NO3, (NH4)2SO4) cause chlorophyll degradation in the N-tolerant lichen Xanthoria parietina and if polyamines are responsible for the N-tolerance of this species. The results showed that N excess does not cause chlorophyll degradation and suggested the absence of kinetics in the mode of action of the N compounds tested. External supply of inhibitors of polyamine biosynthesis prior to N treatments did not cause any change in the response of chlorophyll integrity, suggesting that at least chlorophyll integrity is not controlled by polyamines.
