2012), in plants subjected to water deficit, the increments in proline contents may be associated with the increase in the activity of proteolytic enzymes, which, under the predominance of these conditions adverse to plants, start to promote a greater availability of this free amino acid.

We determined that increased proline appears to have an inhibitory effect on yeast fermentation capability under conditions of low nitrogen and low vitamins in the must.
To verify if a high endogenous accumulation of proline allows for an osmotic adjustment during drought stress and disrupts organelle structure in a model plant species, physiological and electron microscopy analyses were carried out in tobacco transgenic plants over-accumulating proline, due to the constitutive expression of a heterologous [DELTA]1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase gene (VaP5CSF129A), under water deficit conditions.
It was statistically observed that drought stress had a significant influence on proline content of shoots in all varieties.
2011), we hypothesized that proline could improve growth performance and relieve LPS challenge by reducing intestinal oxidative stress, stimulating some growth factors or hormones secretion, and improving the digestibility in piglets.
According to the obtained data, addition of heavy metals into plants growing medium significantly increases the proline level.
