Overexpression of a peroxiredoxin Q gene, SsPrxQ, in Eustoma grandiflorum Shinn enhances its tolerance to salt and high light intensity


Abiotic stress, such as salt, high light intensity and extreme temperature, can result in enhanced production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). One of the major ROS-scavenging enzymes of plants is peroxiredoxin (Prx). Peroxiredoxin Q (PrxQ), a member of the Prx gene family, was recently cloned from plants. To investigate the protective role of PrxQ during… (More)
