Reactive Oxygen Species Are Involved in Brassinosteroid-Induced Stress Tolerance in Cucumber1[W]
Results strongly suggest that elevated H2O2 levels resulting from enhanced NADPH oxidase activity are involved in the BR-induced stress tolerance. Expand
Functional Analysis of the Arabidopsis PAL Gene Family in Plant Growth, Development, and Response to Environmental Stress1[W][OA]
It is found that three independent pal1 pal2 double mutants were fertile and generated yellow seeds due to the lack of condensed tannin pigments in the seed coat, and PAL1 and PAL2 have a redundant role in flavonoid biosynthesis. Expand
Structural and Functional Analysis of VQ Motif-Containing Proteins in Arabidopsis as Interacting Proteins of WRKY Transcription Factors1[W][OA]
The findings indicate that VQ proteins play an important role in plant growth, development, and response to environmental conditions, most likely by acting as cofactors of group I and IIc WRKY transcription factors. Expand
Brassinosteroids Alleviate Heat-Induced Inhibition of Photosynthesis by Increasing Carboxylation Efficiency and Enhancing Antioxidant Systems in Lycopersicon esculentum
To investigate the effects of exogenously applied brassinosteroids on the thermotolerance of plants, leaf CO2 assimilation, chlorophyll fluorescence parameters, and antioxidant enzyme metabolism wereExpand
Role of brassinosteroids in alleviation of phenanthrene–cadmium co-contamination-induced photosynthetic inhibition and oxidative stress in tomato
A positive role for EBR is advocated in reducing pollutant residues for food safety and also strengthening phytoremediation as a result of a potential interaction of EBR and PHE for Cd stress alleviation. Expand
Interplay between reactive oxygen species and hormones in the control of plant development and stress tolerance.
This review provides an overview of current knowledge of how ROS production and signalling are integrated with the action of auxin, brassinosteroids, gibberellins, abscisic acid, ethylene, strigolactones, salicylic acid, and jasmonic acid in the coordinate regulation of plant growth and stress tolerance.

Effects of light quality on CO2 assimilation, chlorophyll-fluorescence quenching, expression of Calvin cycle genes and carbohydrate accumulation in Cucumis sativus.
Light quality alters plant photosynthesis by the effects on the activity of photosynthetic apparatus in leaves and the effects in the expression and/or activity of the Calvin cycle enzymes. Expand
Brassinosteroids promote photosynthesis and growth by enhancing activation of Rubisco and expression of photosynthetic genes in Cucumis sativus
It is shown that improved growth of cucumber plants after treatment with 24-epibrassinolide (EBR), an active BR, was associated with increased CO2 assimilation and quantum yield of PSII (ΦPSII), and a role of RCA in BR-regulated activation state of Rubisco is suggested. Expand
A role of brassinosteroids in early fruit development in cucumber
Results suggest that BRs play an important role during early fruit development in cucumber through manipulation of exogenous BR levels or a BR biosynthesis inhibitor. Expand
Physiological basis of different allelopathic reactions of cucumber and figleaf gourd plants to cinnamic acid.
There was an interspecies difference in the recognition of allelochemicals, which induced oxidative stress accompanied by root cell death in cucumber, an autotoxic plant, but not in figleaf gourd, a cucumber relative. Expand
