Melatonin nephroprotective action in Zucker diabetic fatty rats involves its inhibitory effect on NADPH oxidase.
Excessive activity of NADPH oxidase (Nox) is considered to be of importance for the progress of diabetic nephropathy. The aim of the study was to elucidate the effect of melatonin, known for itsExpand

Heavy metal tolerance in contrasting ecotypes of Alyssum montanum.
The response of metallicolous (M) and nonmetallicolous (NM) Alyssum montanum ecotypes to multi-metal stress was investigated under in vitro condition and compared in this study. Shoot cultures wereExpand

Ascorbate-glutathione pathway as an important player in redox regulation in nematode-infested plants: What we have learned so far
Abstract The sessile existence of plants imposes on them an acclimation to changing environment. Responses to these changes need the elaborate mechanisms including the redox state regulation. RedoxExpand

Dual Role of Metallic Trace Elements in Stress Biology—From Negative to Beneficial Impact on Plants
Heavy metals are an interesting group of trace elements (TEs). Some of them are minutely required for normal plant growth and development, while others have unknown biological actions. They may causeExpand

Glutathione-dependent responses of plants to drought: a review
Water is a renewable resource. However, with the human population growth, economic development and improved living standards, the world’s supply of fresh water is steadily decreasing and consequentlyExpand

Systemic changes in photosynthesis and reactive oxygen species homeostasis in shoots of Arabidopsis thaliana infected with the beet cyst nematode Heterodera schachtii.
Photosynthetic efficiency and redox homeostasis are important for plant physiological processes during regular development as well as defence responses. The second-stage juveniles of HeteroderaExpand

Protease activity and phytocystatin expression in Arabidopsis thaliana upon Heterodera schachtii infection.
The activity of plant proteases is important for amino acids recycling, removal of damaged proteins as well as defence responses. The second-stage juvenile of the beet cyst nematode HeteroderaExpand

Evaluation of heavy metal-induced responses in Silene vulgaris ecotypes
Silene vulgaris is a pseudometallophyte that spontaneously occurs in various ecological niches. Therefore, three ecotypes of this species representing calamine (CAL), serpentine (SER), andExpand
