Oxidative Signals in Tobacco Increase Cytosolic Calcium.


Tobacco (Nicotiana plumbaginifolia) seedlings genetically transformed to express apoaequorin were incubated in h-coelenterazine to reconstitute the calcium-sensitive luminescent protein aequorin. Treatment of these seedlings with hydrogen peroxide resulted in a transient burst of calcium-dependent luminescence lasting several minutes. Even though the… (More)
