The effects of aluminum (Al) on root elongation, lipid peroxidation, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) accumulation, antioxidant levels, antioxidant enzymatic activity, and lignin content in the roots of the Al-tolerant rice variety azucena and the Al-sensitive variety IR64 were investigated. Treatment with Al induced a greater decrease in root elongation and a… CONTINUE READING
