Free proline accumulation is helpful in osmotic adjustment, thus protecting enzymes and cellular structures (Kumar and Sharma, 2010).
2014), who reported that, frequently, increments in the leaf contents of free proline have been observed as one of the inherent effects of water stress as way of mitigating the deleterious implications of water shortage on plant species.
Eatons development of the PROLINE 150 Series multi-bag vessel took into consideration the total life cycle costs as well as its commitment to sustainability.
A spokesman said the Swan and Proline machines were no longer in production and some 26,500 Proline dryers not in service.
A+B] exposure and proline induced a marked stimulatory effect in dry matter production of shoots of genotype sakha-2.
Proline concentrations were determined spectrophotometric ally using a standard curve of purified proline as a witness at a wavelength of 520 nm was measured in micrograms per mol.

This suggests that while the low nitrogen is a problem, it is not the only problem associated with these juices, and we suspect that whatever factors are driving the increase in proline within the berry are also negatively impacting the yeast or that other elements of the grapevine stress response are leading to the presence of inhibitory conditions within the juice.
In plants under osmotic stress, proline is predominantly synthesized from glutamate via D1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate (P5C) by two successive reductions that are catalyzed by P5C synthetase (P5CS), the rate-limiting enzyme for the biosynthetic pathway in higher plants, and P5C reductase (P5CR) (VeRBRUGGEN; HERMANS, 2008).
By this mechanism, osmotic potential of the plant is reduced as a result of the accumulation of proline and soluble carbohydrates.
