SIGNIFICANCE Ascorbate is an essential antioxidant in plants. Total contents and its redox state in organelles are crucial to fight and signal oxidative stress. Recent Advances: With quantitative immunoelectron microscopy and biochemical methods, highest ascorbate contents have recently been measured in peroxisomes (23 mM) and the cytosol (22 mM), lowest… CONTINUE READING
