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 activity of nitrate reducatse shown in figure 1.
Figure 1: Nitrate reductase activity in basil, chives and mint. Samples of root and shoot tissue from basil, mint
and chives was incubated with nitrate and sampled at three time points. The rate of nitrite production was
calculated as the activity of the enzyme. Blue bars represent production of nitrite in the shoots and red in the
And now a model of the text paragraph that would precede the figure.
The activity of nitrate reductase was determined by measuring the amount of nitrite was produced
at each time point in each plant sample. All plants showed a difference in the amount of activity
between the root and shoot tissue with the nitrate reductase activity is higher in the leaf for chives
and mint, yet in basil the root has the higher amount of activity of nitrate reducatse reductase (Fig 1). shown
in figure 1.
