Nitric oxide (NO) is a bioactive gaseous, multifunctional molecule playing a central role and mediating a variety of physiological processes and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses including heavy metals. The present study investigated whether NO applied exogenously as sodium nitroprusside (SNP) has any protective role against arsenic (As) toxicity in Oryza sativa (rice). Treatment with 50 microM SNP (a NO donor) significantly ameliorated the As-induced (25 or 50 microM) decrease in root… Expand

TLDR
Treatment with 75 μM SNP significantly improved mung bean seed germination, growth, and decreased the As-accumulation and supplementation of SNP markedly decreased the activity of superoxide dismutase and stimulated catalase, α-amylase, protease and slightly changed the H-ATPase activity. Expand
Nitric Oxide Attenuates Oxidative Stress Induced by Arsenic in Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) Leaves
Lettuce plants were exposed to different toxic levels of arsenic (As) to induce an oxidative stress response, and the role of nitric oxide (NO) (provided as sodium nitroprusside (SNP)) as anExpand

In the present study, we have investigated the effects of nitric oxide (NO) on alleviating manganese (Mn)-induced oxidative stress in rice leaves. Exogenous MnCl2 treatment to excised rice leaves forExpand
Nitric oxide mitigates arsenic-induced oxidative stress and genotoxicity in Vicia faba L.
TLDR
The protective effects of nitric oxide (NO) against arsenic (As)-induced structural disturbances in Vicia faba have been investigated and SNP was very effective in counteracting the adverse effect of As toxicity. Expand
Synergistic effects of nitric oxide and silicon on promoting plant growth, oxidative stress tolerance and reduction of arsenic uptake in Brassica juncea.
TLDR
It is highlighted that NO and Si synergistically interact to mitigate detrimental effects of As stress through reducing As uptake and combined No and Si application in As spiked soils for improvement of plant growth and stress alleviation. Expand
Exogenous Nitric Oxide (NO) Interferes with Lead (Pb)-Induced Toxicity by Detoxifying Reactive Oxygen Species in Hydroponically Grown Wheat (Triticum aestivum) Roots
TLDR
It is concluded that exogenous NO partially ameliorates Pb-toxicity, but could not restore the plant growth on prolonged P b-exposure. Expand
Nitric oxide improves tolerance to arsenic stress in Isatis cappadocica desv. Shoots by enhancing antioxidant defenses.
TLDR
The addition of SNP improves growth and alleviates As-induced oxidative stress by enhancing the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), ascorbate peroxidase (APX), glutathione reductase (GR), glutthione S-transferase (GST), glutATHione (GSH), as well as proline and thiol concentrations, thereby confirming the beneficial role played by NO in increasing As stress tolerance.

TLDR
The results suggest that the exogenous application of NO could be advantageous against Cd toxicity, and could confer tolerance to heavy metal stress in plants. Expand
Protective effect of nitric oxide on iron deficiency-induced oxidative stress in maize (Zea mays).
TLDR
The data suggest that NO can protect maize plants from iron deficiency-induced oxidative stress by reacting with ROS directly or by changing activities of ROS-scavenging enzymes. Expand
Nitric oxide reduces Cu toxicity and Cu-induced NH4+ accumulation in rice leaves.
TLDR
Results obtained in the present study suggest that reduction of CuSO4-induced toxicity and NH4+ accumulation by SNP is most likely mediated through its ability to scavenge active oxygen species. Expand
Nitric oxide reduces hydrogen peroxide accumulation involved in water stress-induced subcellular anti-oxidant defense in maize plants.

TLDR
Analysis of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO) levels by fluorescence and confocal laser microscopy showed an over-accumulation of O2*- and H2O2, and a reduction in the NO content in lateral and principal roots, which could regulate the cellular response to cope with damages imposed by cadmium.
