The roles of the plasma-membrane (PM) NADPH oxidase in abscisic acid (ABA)- and water stress-induced antioxidant defense were investigated in leaves of maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings. Treatment by exogenous ABA (100 µM ABA) or osmotic stress (–0.7 MPa induced by polyethylene glycol) significantly increased the activity of the PM NADPH oxidase, the production of leaf O2 –, the activities of several antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, ascorbate peroxidase and glutathione reductase… CONTINUE READING
