Abstract Leaf senescence was studied in an early (X 3342) and late (Deccan 103) cultivar of maize. Observations were recorded in the flag leaves with the initiation of tasseling at an interval of 5 days upto the senescent leaf stage. Hydrogen peroxide content and lipid peroxidation increased from young leaf stage to the senescent leaf stage. Chlorophyll content initially increased up to 10th day after tasseling (DAT) and decreased thereafter, while carotenoid content increased up to 30 DAT and… Expand

Changes in Activities of Antioxidant Enzymes in Sunflower Leaves of Different Ages
TLDR
Role of superoxide dismutase isozymes and other antioxidant enzymes was studied in relation to leaf age in sunflower at pre-flowering and grain filling stages, finding that protein content declined continuously from the youngest to the oldest leaf, while chlorophyll andCar contents increased down to 7th/9th leaf and declined in subsequent older leaves.

Oxidative stress and antioxidant activity as the basis of senescence in chrysanthemum florets
Stems of chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat.) cv. Maghi were harvested when half of the buds showed colour and were put in distilled water at 21°C. Flowers showed visible senescenceExpand
Senescence-related changes in the antioxidant status of ginkgo and birch leaves during autumn yellowing
The antioxidant status of birch and ginkgo leaves during autumnal senescence was characterized by the activities of catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POD), ascorbate peroxidase (APX) and superoxideExpand
Senescence-specific change in ROS scavenging enzyme activities and regulation of various SOD isozymes to ROS levels in psf mutant rice leaves.
TLDR
Findings suggest that the senescence-related decline in total SOD activity was mostly attributable to the downregulation of both the translation and transcription of Mn-SOD isoform, which resulted in the collapse of SOD defense system and accelerated leaf senescences for the psf mutant. Expand
Antioxidant enzymatic protection during tobacco leaf ageing is affected by cytokinin depletion
TLDR
It is evident that AtCKX2 plants had postponed onset of senescence despite the significantly lowered level of cytokinins, and enhanced antioxidant protection, especially in the oldest leaves, could subsidise this phenomenon. Expand
The role of nitrophenol on delaying abscission of tomato flowers and fruits
Flower and fruit abscission was studied in PKM 1 cultivar of tomato. The plants were sprayed with 2 mM nitrophenol on 60 days after transplanting [(DAT), flowering] and repeated once on 70 DAT (fruitExpand
Antioxidative protection in the leaves of dark-senescing intact barley seedlings
TLDR
The data bring some support to the view about redox regulation of Rubisco turnover in senescence through the pool of the low-molecular chloroplastic thiols through the pools of the ascorbate and glutathione pools. Expand
The capacity of antioxidant protection during modulated ageing of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cotyledons. 1. The antioxidant enzyme activities
TLDR
It is presumed that the period from senescence initiation to cotyledon abscission was extended in D plants, because in UV C irradiated plants the antioxidative enzymes were probably destroyed before the process of Senescence could begin. Expand
Changes in Antioxidative Protection in Bean Cotyledons During Natural and Continuous Irradiation-Accelerated Senescence
TLDR
Senescence of bean cotyledons induced by CL progressed more rapidly than natural senescence: the life span of CL cotYledons was 13 d compared to 16 d in controls (C), and contents of non-enzymatic antioxidants β-carotene and ascorbate were higher in CL plants than in C plants. Expand
Antioxidant enzymes potential in leaves of oats and barley and phytochemistry of stress tolerance
TLDR
The present results are indicative of the fact that barley, a hardy crop is equipped with higher antioxidant enzymes and are thus better adapted to cope with drought. Expand

TLDR
In Arabidopsis, ROS increases are associated with the developmental transition to flowering, perhaps due to programmed declines in APX activity, and apparently lead to the oxidative activation of lipoxygenase and subsequent lipid peroxidation. Expand
Oxidative Stress and Antioxidants in Wheat Genotypes: Possible Mechanism of Water Stress Tolerance
TLDR
It seems that drought tolerance of PBW 175, as represented by higher membrane stability and chlorophyll and carotenoid contents and lower lipid peroxidation, is related to its higher antioxidant enzyme activity. Expand
Alterations in lipid composition, lipid peroxidation and anti-oxidative protection during senescence in drought stressed plants and non-drought stressed plants of Pisum sativum
TLDR
The drought stressed and non-drought stressed plants showed a similar pattern of changes during senescence, though of different magnitude and rate, and there was a relatively higher proportion of neutral lipids in the leaves of drought stressed plants compared to non-stressed plants, accompanied by a lower level of lipid peroxidation, which might indicate an inhibition in the degradation ofneutral lipids.

TLDR
Drought and salinity differentially influence activity of SOD forms in narrow-leafed lupins, indicating that different mechanisms may be involved in oxidative stress injury caused by drought and Salinity. Expand

TLDR
It seems that promoted senescence by H 2 O 2 in detached rice leaves is associated free radical- induced lipid peroxidation. Expand
Lipid peroxidation and antioxidative enzymes in senescing tobacco leaves during post-flooding
TLDR
It seems that post-flooding-induced enhancement of leaf senescence is associated with an increased lipid peroxidation coupled with reduced catalase and superoxide dismutase activities. Expand
