The objective of this study was to determine the effects of NO2 and SO2 on soybeans which may cause irreversible damage. The effects of NO2 and SO2 on total protein, RNA, DNA and protein synthesis were determined. Also, the effects of NO2 on alpha-amylase, acid phosphatase, peroxidase and lipase were studied.
