Abstract

Kalanamak cultivar of rice (Oryza sativa L.), aromatic non-basmati rice cultivated in the northeastern part of the U.P, continuously received the researchers’ attention because of its indigenous origin, nutritive values, and presence of a small genetic base. The long height of this cultivar causes crop lodging which results in a huge loss in its yield. The present work is focused to reduce the height of the cultivar and increase in yield. As the broad genetic base is a pre-requisite feature of any crop improvement program, hence, an attempt of induced mutagenesis was made using gamma radiation for genetic improvement of aforesaid indigenous rice. Seeds of Kalanamak rice were treated at different intensities of gamma radiation (100, 150, 200, 250, and 300) Gy, and the most effective dose was determined based on seed survival percentage and antioxidant enzyme activity. The dose of 150 Gy was identified as the most potent dose in the context of antioxidant enzyme activity, promotion of dwarfs, and increase in the number of tillers per plant, and grains per panicle.

1. INTRODUCTION

Rice is one of the principal staple foods for more than 3.5 billion people in the world [1], and Asia contributes 90% of global rice production [2]. Rice is used as a major staple food by more than two-thirds of the Indian population [3] and also it plays a crucial role in people’s food and livelihood security. The total rice production in India during 2019–2020 is estimated at 116.5 metric tons (Mt), the second-highest in the world [4] and as per estimate approximately 150 Mt of rice will be needed in India by 2050 [5].

Kalanamak rice (Oryza sativa L.) is non-basmati aromatic rice, has high quality and intermediate grain size, and is largely recognized for its aroma and taste. It is indigenous, predominantly cultivated, and consumed in the north-east part of Uttar Pradesh [6]. The government of India has granted it geographical indication tag in 2012. The global value of Kalanamak rice is due to significantly higher antioxidant levels, Vitamin E, grain quality, and aroma [7,8]. According to Chaudhary et al. [6], farmers’ interest in the cultivation of Kalanamak rice has been lessened due to many reasons, namely, tall stature (150 cm), long-duration (145 days), and non-availability of quality seeds. Revitalization of interest for Kalanamak rice required focused breeding steps to improve its genotypes for long and slender grain type, semi-dwarf to dwarf plant, lodging resistance, and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, and short duration of maturity [9].

Gamma rays have been extensively used to develop 92% of rice mutant varieties [10]. According to the current database of FAO/IAEA-MVD [11], nearly 22 rice mutant varieties have been developed by physical mutagen (gamma-rays) in India. Recent studies have documented that exposure to gamma-irradiation can improve tolerance to abiotic stress conditions, such as salt and drought [12,13]. The exposure of biological systems to gamma rays can damage molecules, primarily through the ionization of protein and nucleic acid. It can also cause damage to the external medium through the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) [14]. Accumulation of ROS in plant cells is prevented by the assistance of various ROS detoxifying enzymes and various non-enzymatic antioxidants [15,16]. The seeds of Kalanamak rice were treated with gamma rays at various intensities (100, 150, 200, 250, and 300) Gy. The purpose of this study was to induce genetic variation and to analyze the effects of gamma-irradiation on morpho-agronomic and yield attributes.


2. MATERIALS AND METHODS

2.1. Plant Material and Radiation Treatments

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) seeds were procured by Participatory Rural Development Foundation (PRDF), Gorakhpur, U.P., India. These were exposed to gamma rays at the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI), Lucknow located at 26.8° N and 80.9° E. The treatment was given at the various intensities of gamma radiation 100, 150, 200, 250, and 300 Gy in 2019 using a Cobalt60 (60Co) source. Seeds were packed in butter paper covers and placed in a gamma chamber 60Co gamma source for a suitable time for an individual dose based on the half-life of the source.

2.2. Seedling Tray Trial

The seedling tray trail experiment was conducted in the Department of Botany, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur located at 26.7° N and 83.3° E; by following the method of Shimelis et al. [17] with a few modifications. Control and the irradiated gamma-ray seeds at different doses were planted at a depth of about 1 cm in the seedling tray under natural conditions using a fertile farm soil growth medium. In an entirely randomized design, two seeds were sowed per hole with three replications. For each gamma-ray treatment, 196 seeds were planted per replica. The seedlings were watered two times daily using a mist irrigation system.

2.3. Data Collection

Morpho-physiological characteristics were noted from germination to 14 days. After germination, the germination percentage was calculated as the ratio of germinated seeds to the total number of seeds sown on the 7th day after sowing. The seedling height was measured as the length from the plant’s base to the flag leaf’s tip. The Percentage of seedling survival and seedling height, taken after 14 days of seed germination, and the average seedling height were measured based on randomly selected 100 seedlings for each treatment.

2.4. Preparation of Enzyme Extracts

After 14 days of seedling, samples were collected and powdered in liquid nitrogen before homogenization. Enzyme-specific buffers were used for the extraction of homogenized samples in enzymatic analysis. Homogenate was centrifuged at 15,000 × g for 10 min at 4°C. Supernatant of each treatment was separately collected and used for different enzyme assays.

2.5. Enzyme Activities

Catalase (CAT) activity was assayed using the method of Ye et al. [18]. The superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity was assayed by adopting the method provided by Imanari [19]. The lipid peroxidation (LPO) products were estimated by the formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and quantified in terms of malondialdehyde (MDA) as described by Haraguchi et al. [20]. The total soluble protein in the seedling extract was determined by Lowry’s method and crystalline bovine serum albumin was used as a standard [21].

2.6. Field Trial

The field trial experiment was conducted in the Educational and Research Botanical Garden (ERBG) of the Department of BotanyDeen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur. A nursery of gamma-irradiated M1 seeds was implanted in the field with 300 control seeds. After 20 days, seedlings were subsequently transplanted in a randomized block design along with control. After maturation of the surviving seedlings, different agronomic characters, namely, plant height (cm), leaf length (cm), leaf width (cm), the total number of tillers per plant, panicle length (cm), the total number of grains per panicle, percent of filled grains per panicle, and number of primary and secondary branching per panicle were evaluated. During the growth period of the crop, all the suggested cultural practices such as irrigation, weeding, and plant protection methods were followed.

2.7. Statistical Analysis

All experimental data were expressed as the mean ± SD. Error bars were made for the variables. Kolmogorov–Smirnov test was applied to check for the normality of variables. P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. To check for the difference between the control and 150 Gy, a two-sample independent t-test or its corresponding non-parametric test: the Mann–Whitney U test, was applied depending on the normality of the variables in both the groups. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was also performed to check whether there is a significant difference in the means of percentage seed germination (7 DAP), percentage of seedling survival (14 DAP), and seedling height (14 DAP) across different groups. All the analyses were done using PRISM 5.01 and SPSS v20 software.


3. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

3.1. Seedling Tray Trial

In the seedling tray trial experiment, a gradual reduction in the percentage of germination, percentage of seedling survival, and seedling height with an increased dose of gamma radiation was observed [Table 1]. The percent of seed germination is higher in control (88.43%), followed by 100 and 150 Gy-treated seeds. In control, the percentage of germination, seedling survival, and seedling height was (88.43 ± 1.56), (81.73 ± 6.77) and (12.70 ± 0.15), respectively. While, in 100 Gy-treated seeds, the percentage of seed germination, seedling survival, and seedling height was reported (70.40 ± 1.02), (63.24 ± 7.46) and (9.75 ± 1.28), respectively. A significant reduction was observed in the percentage of seed germination at the higher doses of gamma radiation, namely, 250 Gy (39.96 ± 2.41) and 300 Gy (38.26 ± 1.35). The higher level of DNA damage caused by gamma irradiation to the seed embryo points to a drop in the percentage of seedling survivability to (42.05 ± 5.10) at 250 Gy and (37.80 ± 1.30) at 300 Gy. The seedling height at 250 Gy and 300 Gy has also been severely affected. In the selected mid-range of 150 Gy and 200 Gy, the seed germination percentage is found to be (62.07 ± 0.78) and (58.67 ± 3.06), respectively.

3.2. Enzyme Activities

The antioxidant enzymatic assays highlight how a high dose of gamma radiation can induce redox imbalance in seeds leading to an intracellular increase in ROS concentration and subsequent alterations in various oxidative stress markers and drastically affecting the DNA content of seed embryos [22]. Rice seeds were exposed to different doses, namely, 100, 150, 200, 250, and 300 Gy. Although, a dosage of 150 Gy represents very effective antioxidant enzymatic activity compared to control.

Antioxidant enzyme assays for CAT, SOD, and MDA are performed within control and numerous gamma-ray irradiated seedlings. After 14 days from germination, the enzyme assays were performed to determine the most favorable dose that maintains their antioxidant status, which may improve the yield and grain quality in the next generation. Three independent experiments were conducted for each antioxidant enzyme in each treatment group that contains 100 seeds.

Superoxide dismutase enzymatic activity in 150 Gy seedlings significantly increased (P < 0.05) after 14 days compared with the control [Figure 1a]. SOD is the decisive antioxidant biomarker that maintains cellular redox balance [23]. Antioxidant enzymatic activity of CAT shows a similar result as SOD (150 Gy treated seedlings) [Figure 1b]. Peroxidase is considered the key enzyme for the decomposition of H2O2, especially under CAT inactivation [24]. Decreased levels of CAT and increased peroxidase activity induced by oxidative stress reflected a general strategy required to confound the stress and rescue the cells against damage. Lipid peroxidation (LPO) is measured in the form of MDA because it is the end product of lipid peroxidation. Increased LPO damages membrane function by reducing membrane fluidity and altering the activity of membrane-bound enzymes and receptors [25]. At the higher dose of gamma radiation, that is, 250 and 300 Gy, LPO significantly (P < 0.05) increased in comparison to 150 Gy treated seedlings [Figure 1c]. Protein is also one of the best parameters to know the physiological activity of plants. The gamma radiation-induced loss of total protein was analyzed by determining the concentration of the total soluble proteins. At the higher dose of gamma radiation (250 and 300 Gy), the soluble protein content significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in comparison to the 150 Gy treatment [Figure 1d]. Hence, we provide experimental evidence for the beneficial effect of a 150 Gy dose of gamma radiation for further study. This dose of gamma radiation could be very effective for screening desired traits in the M2 generation.

3.3. Evaluation of Morpho-agronomic Parameters

The agro-morphological characteristics are shown in [Table 2]; all ten parameters were compared between the control and 150 Gy gamma-irradiated plants. Before checking for the significant difference, each parameter was checked for normality individually in control and 150 Gy irradiated plants. For variables found to be normally distributed in both, an independent t-test was applied to check if there was any significant difference between the mean of control and plants treated at 150 Gy gamma radiation. However, variables were found to be non-normally distributed between control and 150 Gy irradiated plants, the corresponding non-parametric test – Mann–Whitney U test, was applied to check for a significant difference.

Leaf width (cm) was found to be non-normally distributed by applying the Kolmogorov–Smirnov test for normality. The plants that received treatment of 150 Gy have significantly lower leaf width than the control. Leaf length (cm) and plant height (cm) were normally distributed. Hence, independent samples t-test was applied to check for the significant difference in the mean of 150 Gy irradiated plants and control.

The number of tillers per plant and panicle length(cm) was found to be irregularly distributed; hence, the Mann–Whitney U test was applied to check for significant differences. Both showed significant P-values at a 5% significance level, indicating that the median between the 150 Gy irradiated plants and control is not the same. There was a significant increase in the number of tillers per plant in 150 Gy irradiated plants compared to the control. In comparison, panicle length (cm) reduced significantly for the plants of 150 Gy. An independent t-test was applied to check if there is a significant difference in the average number of grains per panicle. It was found that the average number of grains per panicle was significantly higher for the plants that received 150 Gy (234.38) as compared to the control (210.03). The percentage of filled grains per panicle, number of primary and secondary branching number per panicle, and 1000 seed weight (gm) were all non-normally distributed; hence, Mann–Whitney U test was applied to check for any significant difference between the control and 150 Gy irradiated plants. The null hypothesis of no difference was rejected for all four indicators. A substantial reduction was observed in the percentage of filled grains per panicle for the plants that received 150 Gy compared to the control. Primary and secondary branching numbers per panicle significantly increased for the 150 Gy irradiated plants. A significant reduction in the 1000 seed weight (g) for the 150 Gy irradiated plants was (11.82) as compared to the control (14.92).

3.4. Mutants Showing Alterations

On screening M1 plants of 150 Gy, variations in phenotypic characters such as plant height, tiller count per plant, unproductive tillers, panicle length, and numbers of primary and secondary branches in a panicle are shown in [Table 3]. The panicle length of control plants was in the range of (23.5-30.5cm). In the 150 Gy mutant plants, the primary branching number per panicle (PBNPP) in 15 plants was observed to be more than (16). Although only in two mutant plants, the secondary branching number per panicle (SBNPP) was more than (54). The PBNPP and SBNPP of the control were in the mean range of (11.6–16.6) and (16–54.3), respectively.

4. CONCLUSION

The experimental evidence from the present study reflects the positive effects of gamma radiation on the agronomic traits of Kalanamak rice. Several variants have shown high yield and less plant height than the control. The retrieved germplasm could be utilized to make improved lines. Selection of abiotic stress resistance genotypes can also be achieved in the future as the effective dose of gamma radiation did not negatively affect the antioxidant potential. This study will be helpful for researchers working on genetic improvement aspects of the same genotype or other related cultivars.
