Characterization of the role of Zea mays burp domain-containing genes in maize drought responses
(University of the Western Cape, 2016)
Global climate change has resulted in altered rainfall patterns, causing annual losses in maize crop yield due to water deficit stress. Therefore, it is important to produce maize cultivars which are more drought-tolerant. ...
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 ...
