High temperature stress is synonymous with the attenuation of plant growth, metabolism and eventually death resulting in major loss of crop productivity worldwide. Part of the metabolic perturbations associated with heat ...
Involvement of abscisic acid and H2O2 in antioxidant enzyme activities mediated by nitric oxide synthase-like activity in maize
(University of the Western Cape, 2018)
In recent years, nitric oxide (NO) has emerged as an important endogenous plant signalling molecule that mediates many developmental and physiological processes. NO regulates the activity of antioxidant enzymes in response ...
