The effect of SO2 on adenosine 5′-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase activity and various other parameters of needles from spruce (Picea abies L.) was studied using potted grafts in outdoor fumigation chambers and trees growing near a factory. In summer and autumn fumigation of grafted spruce, SO2, decreased the extractable activity of adenosine 5′-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase to 12–50% of the controls, and reduced the amount of 35S from sulphate incorporated into protein by excised branches to a comparable degree. SO2 treatment in January and February inhibited the increase in adenosine 5′phosphosulfate sulfotransferase activity measured in the controls during this time. ATP-sulfurylase activity was less affected by SO2. fumigation. In trees growing near a factory with high SO2. emission, the activity of adenosine 5′-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase was about 35% of that of trees from a control area. The low enzyme activity was correlated with a high content of sulfate and compounds containing thiol groups.
