Rate of activity of nitrate reducatse
Basil chives Mint
Figure 1: The Nitrate reductase activity in the basil, chives and mint leaves and roots.
9 samples of solutions contained the basil root and leaves, chives root and leaves and min root and
leaves. For an hour every 20 minutes 3 of the solutions were removed and absorbance readings of
the solutions were recorded. The nitrate reductase activity is higher in the leaf for chives and mint,
yet in basil the root has the higher amount of
