l-DOPA is an active allelochemical that inhibits plant growth. To determine whether the phytotoxicity is due to the reactive oxygen species generated during its oxidation to melanin, oxidative damage, melanin accumulation, and the effect of antioxidants on its phytotoxicity were examined in l-DOPA-tolerant (barnyard grass) and -susceptible (lettuce) plants… CONTINUE READING
