Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) are produced in many places in living cells and at an increased rate during biotic or abiotic stress. ROS and RNS participate in signal transduction, but also modify cellular components and cause damage. We first look at the most common ROS and their properties. We then consider the ways in which the cell can regulate their production and removal. We critically assess current knowledge about modifications of polyunsaturated fatty…

Reactive oxygen species in plants: their generation, signal transduction, and scavenging mechanisms

The generation, origin, and role of ROS in signal transduction and cell death, and the removal of ROS by antioxidative defense systems in plants during various developmental pathways are described.

Consequences of Oxidative Stress on Plant Glycolytic and Respiratory Metabolism

The various effects that result from alterations of redox homeostasis on plant glycolytic pathway and tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle are analyzed and it is indicated that oxidative stress may induce complex changes in metabolite pools in central carbon metabolism.

Mitochondria from both mammalian and plant tissues contain a number of oxidised proteins, but the relative abundance of these post-translationally modified forms is as yet unknown, as are the consequences of the modification for the properties and turnover time of the proteins.

Reactive oxygen species generation and antioxidant systems in plant mitochondria

This review describes the various mitochondrial redox pathways for ROS control in plants with special emphasis on the poorly studied GRX and TRX systems and provides perspectives for future research in this area.

Reactive oxygen species as signals that modulate plant stress responses and programmed cell death

Although many components of the ROS signaling network have recently been identified, the challenge remains to understand how ROS‐derived signals are integrated to eventually regulate such biological processes as plant growth, development, stress adaptation and programmed cell death.

Oxidant and antioxidant signalling in plants: a re-evaluation of the concept of oxidative stress in a physiological context

It is proposed that the oxidative stress syndrome would be more usefully described as 'oxidative signalling', that is, an important and critical function associated with the mechanisms by which plant cells sense the environment and make appropriate adjustments to gene expression, metabolism and physiology.
