As a key enzyme of heme degradation, heme oxygenase (HO) is essential in phytochrome chromophore synthesis, cell protection and stomatal regulation in higher plants. The activity or transcript of HO has been detected in many plant species. Arabidopsis HO1 (HY1), the first map-based cloning gene, could catalyze the transition of heme to carbon monoxide (CO) in vivo. In this review, we first describe HO1 is evolutionarily conserved through comparative analysis of different plants HO1 proteins… Expand

Characterization and Expression Analysis of Heme Oxygenase Genes from Sorghum bicolor
TLDR
Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed that SbHO genes were expressed in leaves, stems, and roots, but most importantly their transcript level was induced by osmotic stress, indicating that they might play a role in stress responses. Expand
Heme-heme oxygenase 1 system is involved in ammonium tolerance by regulating antioxidant defence in Oryza sativa.
TLDR
The involvement of heme-HO1 system in ammonium tolerance by enhancing antioxidant defence, which may improve plant tolerance to excess ammonium fertilizer, is illustrated. Expand
Ectopic over-expression of BoHO1, a cabbage heme oxygenase gene, improved salt tolerance in Arabidopsis: A case study on proteomic analysis.
TLDR
It is proposed that BoHO1 could activate multiple stress-responsive pathways to help Arabidopsis regain cellular homeostasis, thus presenting enhanced adaptation to salinity stress. Expand
AtTSPO, a translocator protein, in stress responses in Arabidopsis
TLDR
The expression pattern, sub-cellular localization, interacting proteins, and biological functions of Translocator protein 18 kDa, which was previously named peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR), are summarized. Expand
Carbon Monoxide: A Ubiquitous Gaseous Signaling Molecule in Plants
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an important gaseous signaling molecule, second only in importance to nitric oxide (NO). It has a diverse array of physiological functions in plants. In response toExpand
Indole acetic acid is responsible for protection against oxidative stress caused by drought in soybean plants: The role of heme oxygenase induction
TLDR
It is concluded that IAA is responsible, at least in part, for the protection against oxidative stress caused by drought in soybean plants through the modulation of NO levels which, in turn, enhances HO-1 synthesis and activity. Expand
Heme oxygenase up-regulation under ultraviolet-B radiation is not epigenetically restricted and involves specific stress-related transcriptions factors
TLDR
The results suggest that soybean HO-1 gene expression is not epigenetically regulated, and the low level ofHO-1 promoter methylation suggests that this antioxidant enzyme can rapidly respond to environmental stress. Expand
Characterization of the Arabidopsis thaliana heme oxygenase 1 promoter in response to salinity, iron deficiency, and mercury exposure
TLDR
The results show that the region from +1 to +100 in the 5’-untranslated region were essential for HY1 basal promoter activity and might be crucial for salinity-induced HY1 up-regulation in an H2O2-dependent fashion. Expand
Phytochromes are key regulators of abiotic stress responses in tomato
TLDR
Investigating whether tomato phytochromes phyA, phyB1 andphyB2 are involved with responses to responses to low water potential, high salinity, cadmium contamination, and ultraviolet B radiation stresses found them to be negative regulators of growth, pigment maintenance and osmoprotectant accumulation during responses to the different abiotic stresses.

Plant gasotransmitters: light molecules interplaying with heavy metals
The past decades have witnessed the discovery of several gaseous signaling molecules in plants, including nitric oxide (NO), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), and methane (CH4). TheseExpand

The effect of nitric oxide on heme oxygenase gene expression in soybean leaves
TLDR
It was demonstrated that this protection could be, at least in part, mediated by an enhancement of HO-1 mRNA, as it happens with genes associated with the antioxidant defense system, and one of the possible roles that NO can play against an oxidative insult. Expand
Heme oxygenase and catalase gene expression in nodules and roots of soybean plants subjected to cadmium stress
TLDR
The data suggest that an induction of CAT and HO-1 occurred in nodules as a response of cell protection against oxidative damage, which could explain the major viability observed in nodsules respect to roots, and provide a new insight into the processes involved in the antioxidant defence system in plant tissues. Expand
Involvement of heme oxygenase as antioxidant defense in soybean nodules
TLDR
Results are indicating that heme oxygenase plays a protective role against oxidative cell damage in soybean nodules, as well as a 10-fold enhancement of its activity. Expand
Multiple Heme Oxygenase Family Members Contribute to the Biosynthesis of the Phytochrome Chromophore in Arabidopsis1
TLDR
It is concluded that multiple members of the Arabidopsis HO family are important for synthesizing the bilin chromophore used to assemble photochemically active phys. Expand
Characterization of the haem oxygenase protein family in Arabidopsis thaliana reveals a diversity of functions.
TLDR
All members of the HO1 subfamily (HY1, HO3 and HO4) are active monomeric HOs and can convert haem to BV IXalpha using spinach Fd (ferredoxin) as an electron donor and display similar kinetic parameters indicating they all have a possible involvement in PHY chromophore biosynthesis. Expand
Heme oxygenase activity and oxidative stress signaling in soybean leaves
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrated that the signal transduction pathways involved in oxidative stress, triggered by cadmium ions were similar to those implicated in heme oxygenase-1 induction, and supported the proposal of a close relationship between oxidative stress generation and he me oxygenase induction in higher plants.
