• The nonenergy-conserving alternative oxidase (AOX) has been hypothesized to modulate the amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in plant mitochondria but there is sparse direct in planta evidence to support this. • Laser scanning fluorescent confocal microscopy and biochemical methods were used to directly estimate in… CONTINUE READING
