The effect of polyamines (PAs) on nitric oxide (NO) generation was investigated in cucumber (Cucumis sativus cv. Dar) primary leaves using bio-imaging with an NO-selective fluorophor, DAF-2DA. Seedlings pretreated with PAs and subjected to water deficit showed early (after 5 h) and transient NO production. The amplitude of the response depended on the form(More)
Huge advances achieved recently in elucidating the role of NO in plants have been made possible by the application of NO donors. However, the application of NO to plants in various forms and doses should be subjected to detailed verification criteria. Not all metabolic responses induced by NO donors are reliable and reproducible in other experimental(More)
This study demonstrates the sequence of enhanced generation of signal molecules such as phytohormones, i.e. jasmonic acid (JA), ethylene (ET), salicylic acid (SA), and a relatively stable free radical, nitric oxide (NO), in response of Pisum sativum L. cv. Cysterski seedling leaves to the infestation of pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum (Harris) at a varied(More)
During the last decade it has been found that cadmium (Cd), one of the most toxic elements occurring in polluted environments, interferes with nitric oxide (NO), a multifunctional signaling molecule in living organisms. The formation of NO has been demonstrated in vivo in various plant tissues exposed to Cd stress, but unfortunately, the time and intensity(More)
The sequence of events leading to the programmed cell death (PCD) induced by heavy metals in plants is still the object of extensive investigation. In this study we showed that roots of 3-day old yellow lupine (Lupinus luteus L.) seedlings exposed to cadmium (Cd, 89μM CdCl(2)) resulted in PCD starting from 24h of stress duration, which was evidenced by(More)
The subject of this study was the participation of nitric oxide (NO) in plant responses to wounding, promoted by nicking of pelargonium (Pelargonium peltatum L.) leaves. Bio-imaging with the fluorochrome 4,5-diaminofluorescein diacetate (DAF-2DA) and electrochemical in situ measurement of NO showed early (within minutes) and transient (2 h) NO generation(More)
Peroxynitrite (ONOO(-)) is a potent oxidant and nitrating species, generated by the reaction of nitric oxide and superoxide in one of the most rapid reactions known in biology. It is widely accepted that an enhanced ONOO(-) formation contributes to oxidative and nitrosative stress in various biological systems. However, an increasing number of studies have(More)
In the present work, we tested known nitric oxide (NO) modulators generating the NO+ (sodium nitroprusside, SNP) and NO˙ forms (S-nitroso-N-acetyl-D-penicillamine, SNAP and nitrosoglutathione, GSNO). This allowed us to compare downstream NO-related physiological effects on proteins found in leaves of pelargonium (Pelargonium peltatum L.). Protein(More)
An explosion of research in plant nitric oxide (NO) biology during the last two decades has revealed that NO is a key signal involved in plant development, abiotic stress responses and plant immunity. During the course of evolutionary changes, microorganisms parasitizing plants have developed highly effective offensive strategies, in which NO also seems to(More)
The primed mobilization for more potent defense responses to subsequent stress has been shown for many plant species, but there is a growing need to identify reliable molecular markers for this unique phenomenon. In the present study a proteomic approach was used to screen similarities in protein abundance in leaves of primed potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)(More)
