  • fungal
  • These findings - together with the fact that peroxidases participate in diverse fungal secondary metabolism pathways [ 5 - 9 ] - prompted us to sequence the entire genome of Chaetomium cochliodes strain CCM-F232 for detailed comparative studies. (biomedcentral.com)
  • high
  • The results suggested that Spd contributing to fast seed germination and high seed vigor of sweet corn might be closely related with the metabolism of hormones including gibberellins, ABA and ethylene, and with the increase of H 2 O 2 in the radical produced partly from Spd oxidation.

  • role
  • Non-photochemical chlorophyll fluorescence quenching (NPQ) plays a major role in the protection of the photosynthetic apparatus against damage by excess light, which is closely linked to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). (ovid.com)
  • These data are discussed as evidence for a decisive role of the Mehler ascorbate peroxidase or water-water cycle in the formation of the NPQ that reflects down-regulation of PSII. (ovid.com)
  • plants
  • APXs catalyse the H2O2-dependent oxidation of ascorbate in plants, algae and certain cyanobacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compared with wild-type (WT) plants, overexpression of SaCu/Zn SOD gene in transgenic Arabidopsis plants enhanced the antioxidative defense capacity, including SOD and peroxidase activities. (frontiersin.org)
  • wide
  • 1.  Free radical damage has been implicated in a wide variety of age related chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, ophthalmic and neurodegenerative disease as well as being involved in the ageing process. (slideshare.net)
