Activity of aerial and root esterases in wheat DHR lines of chromosome 6AS was tested. Different patterns were found after applyingphytohormone treatments that mimic stress conditions. Ethylene treated plants showed the lowest aerial and root weights; also, the smallest foliararea, in conjunction with absence of esterase activity in more than half of the lines, was observed. Additional studies will contribute to clarify thekey role of ET in the expression of defense related genes.
