Using genotype TF291 as the test material, the effects of low phosphorus treatment (5 μmol/L) on the growth, antioxidant and antioxidant enzymes of Stylosanthes were analyzed to explore the response mechanism of the antioxidant system of Stylosanthes under low phosphorus stress. Compared with the control p treatment (250 μmol/L), the low p treatment inhibited the growth of stylox, and the chlorophyll concentration, maximum photochemical efficiency, abovementium and root biomass were significantly reduced (P<0.05). With the increase of the treatment time of low phosphorus, the activity of CAT, POD, SOD, ASP, PAL and the content of flavonoids in leaves were significantly increased at 15 d (P<0.05). The activity of CAT, SOD, ASP, PPO and content of MDA and H2O2 in leaves were significantly increased at 30 d (P<0.05). The study would provide an important basis for further exploring the molecular response mechanism of the antioxidant system of Stylosanthes cylindrica under low phosphorus stress.

Key words: Stylosanthes, reactive oxygen species, low phosphorus stress, antioxidant system
