The relation between Al-toxicity and oxidative stress was studied for two inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.), Cat100-6 (Al-tolerant) and S1587-17 (Al-sensitive). Peroxidase (PX), catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities were determined in root tips of both lines, exposed to different Al(3+) concentrations and times of exposure. No increases were observed in CAT activities in either line, although SOD and PX were found to be 1.7 and 2.0 times greater than initial levels… CONTINUE READING
