The influence of herbicides harness, stellar, mayster, proponit to the physiological and biochemical indicators of ripe seed Zea mays L. was studied. Was determined that in investigated herbicide preparations can cause significant differences in the electrophoretic spectrum of proteins and redox homeostasis of Zea mays L. seeds. A reduction and synthesis of new protein components was recorded by action of herbicides. The increase superoxide dismutase activity was accompanied by significant reduction in activity of catalase and peroxidase.

Keywords: Zea mays L., seeds, herbicide preparations, protein metabolism, electrophoretic spectrums, superoxide dismutase, catalase, peroxidase
