An immunological assay has been used to investigate the synthesis of (1-->3,1-->4)-beta-glucanase (EC isoenzymes from isolated barley aleurone layers and scutella. Enzyme release from both tissues is enhanced by 1 micromolar gibberellic acid and 10 millimolar Ca(2+), although increases induced by gibberellic acid are observed only in the presence of Ca(2+). Isoenzyme I is synthesized predominantly in the scutellum, while isoenzyme II is synthesized exclusively in the aleurone. A third, putative isoenzyme III has been detected in significant proportions in scutellar secretions and may also be secreted from aleurone layers. Both gibberellic acid and Ca(2+) appear to preferentially enhance isoenzyme II secretion from the aleurone and isoenzyme III secretion from scutella. The patterns of isoenzyme secretion are suggestive of tissue-specific differences in expression of the genes which code for (1-->3,1-->4)-beta-glucanase isoenzymes. Qualitatively similar results were obtained with barley cultivars harvested in Australia and North America.
