Nitric oxide (NO) is widely recognized for its role as signaling compound. However, the metabolic mechanisms that determine changes in the level of NO in plants are only poorly understood, despite this knowledge being crucial to understanding the signal function of NO. To date, at least seven possible pathways of NO biosynthesis have been described for plants, although the molecular and enzymatic components are resolved for only one of these. Currently, this represents the most significant… CONTINUE READING
