Using the real-time polymerase chain reaction method, a change in the level of relative transcription of the SSADH gene in wheat leaves under salt stress conditions was established, correlating with changes in activity. A study of the nucleotide composition of the wheat SSADH gene showed a certain distribution pattern of GATC sequences in the promoter region, which are methylation sites for adenine DNA methyltransferase. Their content is quite high, which may indicate regulation of the expression of this gene by changing the degree of their methylation. Based on the analysis of the nucleotide sequence of this promoter, primers were developed for its amplification and analysis of the adenylate methyl status. A change in the methylation status of adenines in the GATC sites of the succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase SSADH gene promoter in wheat leaves under salinity was shown.

Key words:    succincic acid demialdehyde dehydrogenase, salt stress, regulation, adenine methylation
