The discovery that there is a close relationship between ascorbate and glutathione dates from soon after the characterization of the chemical formulae of the two molecules (Szent-Györgyi, 1931; Hopkins and Morgan, 1936). Similarly, it has long been known that thylakoids can generate hydrogen peroxide (H2O2; Mehler, 1951). Following the discovery of superoxide and superoxide dismutase in mammalian cells (McCord and Fridovich, 1969) and their subsequent discovery and study in chloroplasts (Allen… CONTINUE READING
