Rapid generation of O 2 2 and H 2 O 2 , which is reminiscent of the oxidative burst in neutrophils, is a central component of the resistance response of plants to pathogen challenge. Here, we report that the Arabidopsis rbohA ( for respiratory burst oxidase homolog A ) gene encodes a putative 108-kD protein, with a C-terminal region that shows pronounced similarity to the 69-kD apoprotein of the gp91 phox subunit of the neutrophil respiratory burst NADPH oxidase. The RbohA protein has a large… CONTINUE READING
