Effectiveness of ascorbate and ascorbate peroxidase in promoting nitrogen fixation in model systems.

Abstract

Ascorbate and ascorbate peroxidase are important antioxidants that are abundant in N2-fixing legume root nodules. Antioxidants are especially critical in root nodules because leghemoglobin, which is present at high concentrations in nodules, is prone to autoxidation and production of activated oxygen species such as O2.- and H2O2. The merits of ascorbate… (More)
