Involvement of anthocyanins in the resistance to chilling-induced oxidative stress in Saccharum officinarum L. leaves.

Whether anthocyanins elevate resistance to chilling-induced oxidative stress in Saccharum officinarum L. cv Badila seedlings is investigated. Plants with four fully expanded leaves were exposed to chilling stress (8 °C/4 °C, 11 h photoperiod) for 3 days and then transferred to rewarming condition (25 °C/20 °C, 11 h photoperiod) for another 2 days. At the… CONTINUE READING
