Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has emerged as a signalling molecule capable of regulating several important physiological functions such as blood pressure, neurotransmission and inflammation. The mechanisms behind these effects are still largely elusive and oxidative posttranslational modification of cysteine residues (protein persulfidation or S-sulfhydration) has(More)
Changes in antioxidative enzymes activities during Tacitus bellus direct shoot organogenesis from leaf explants were examined. During the early stages of shoot organogenesis there was a decrease in superoxide dismutase (SOD) and an increase in catalase (CAT) activity, and later during organogenesis there was an increase in peroxidase (POD) and polyphenol(More)
In order to establish an efficient system for in vitro plant regeneration of a short day plant Chenopodium rubrum L. and a long day plant Chenopodium murale L., optimum culture conditions for somatic embryogenesis were investigated. The effects of different growth regulators, their combination and their concentrations on somatic embryos induction in(More)
We examined the redox effects of UV irradiation on cell wall isolates from Pisum sativum leaves, and polygalacturonic and galacturonic acid, in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. For this purpose, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy and two spin-traps (DEPMPO and BMPO), capable of differentiating between various free radicals, were applied. Systems(More)
This work presents findings, which indicate important role of fructose, fructose 6-phosphate (F6P), and fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) in preservation of homeostasis in plants under low temperature. Cold combined with light is known to incite increased generation of superoxide in chloroplasts leading to photoinhibition, but also an increased level of(More)
Young P. omorika trees subjected to static bending showed a severe compression wood response as characterized by fluorescence spectroscopy/microscopy, which decreased in severity with height correlated with a decrease in bending moment. This investigation is aimed at understanding the reaction wood response in a slow-growing conifer species under conditions(More)
The activities of superoxide-dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and peroxidase (POD), and concentrations of glutathione and ascorbate have been studied during the first stages of germination in Chenopodium rubrum L. seeds. The highest CAT and SOD activity was found prior to radicle protrusion, while POD activity was maximal at the time of radicle protrusion(More)
Chenopodium rubrum, a short-day plant, and C. murale, a long-day plant, were grown in vitro in continuous darkness. Control C. rubrum plants exposed to continuous darkness for 15 d at cotyledonary phase, did not flower, while 80 % of plants flowered on the medium with 5 % glucose and 10 mg dm−3 GA3. Control C. murale plants exposed to continuous darkness(More)
The activities and isoenzyme pattern of catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase (POD) have been studied during germination of Chenopodium murale seeds. CAT and SOD activities were similar in dry seeds and during first 2 d of imbibition. CAT activity increased during radicle protrusion and early seedling development. The maximum SOD(More)
One of the key behavioral effects of attractiveness is increased visual attention to attractive people. This effect is often explained in terms of evolutionary adaptations, such as attractiveness being an indicator of good health. Other factors could influence this effect. In the present study, we explored the modulating role of sexual orientation on the(More)
