Nitric oxide (NO) regulates the expression of single-domain cystatins in glycine max (soybean)
(Southern Cross Publishing, 2013)
Plant cystatins inhibit cysteine proteases and are important in regulating plant development and plant responses to biotic and abiotic stress. Furthermore, nitric oxide plays a signaling role in regulating plant responses ...
Nitric oxide affects salt-induced changes in free amino acid levels in maize
It was assumed that salt-induced redox changes affect amino acid metabolism in maize (Zea mays L.), and this inﬂuence may be modiﬁed by NO. The applied NaCl treatment reduced the fresh weight of shoots and roots. This ...
Capacity to control oxidative stress-induced caspase-like activity determines the level of tolerance to salt stress in two contrasting maize genotypes
The response of two maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes, named GR (salt-tolerant) and SK (salt-sensitive), to salt stress (150 mM NaCl) was investigated under controlled environmental growth conditions. Genotype SK experienced ...
Modulation of antioxidant enzyme activities and metabolites ratios by nitric oxide in short-term salt stressed soybean root nodules
Several abiotic factors cause molecular damage to plants either directly or through the accumulation of reactive oxygen species such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). We investigated if application of nitric oxide (NO) donor ...
Inhibition of NOS- like activity in maize alters the expression of genes involved in H2O2 scavenging and glycine betaine biosynthesis
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
Nitric oxide synthase-like activity contributes to the production of nitric oxide in plants, which controls plant responses to stress. This study investigates if changes in ascorbate peroxidase enzymatic activity and ...
