8-Azadenine, cycloheximide, dl-ethionine and p-fluorophenylalanine inhibited the germination of Cicer arietinum. Inhibition by 8-azaadenine was reversed by either adenosine, cyclic-3',5'-AMP or indole-3-acetic acid. Inhibition by cycloheximide was not reversible by any of the agents tested. Degradation of reserve proteins, polysaccharides and phosphates which occurred during germination was also inhibited by these agents. When seeds were exposed to inhibitors during imbibition, the induction of proteases, amylase, phosphatase and peroxidase activities that occurred during germination was inhibited, indicating that these enzymes appeared in seedlings by de dovo synthesis.
