Specific chitin-binding isozymes of peroxidase (POX) play an important role in pathogenesis of plant diseases caused by fungi. We studied the dynamics of peroxidase activity in two varieties of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.); one was susceptible and the other resistant to the plant pathogen Verticillium dahliae. After infection with strongly and weakly virulent isolate of V. dahliae, we observed a correlation between the level of seedling tissue lesion and peroxidase activity. Thus, the first…

Some Aspects of the Interaction between Cotton Anionic Peroxidases and Verticillium dahliae Kleb .
Verticillium dahliae Kleb. is a phytopathogenic fungi which causes wilt disease in a wide range of crops, including cotton. In this study, we have examined the role of the peroxidase (POX) enzymes in
Activity of redox enzymes in the thallus of Anthoceros natalensis
It is demonstrated that the thallus of Anthoceros natalensis exhibits high redox activity changing under stress, and the biochemical mechanism was elucidated, supporting the possible participation of peroxidases in the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) via substrate—substrate interactions in the hornwortThallus.
Composite Insecticides Effects on Defensive and Nutritious Compounds inCotton Leaves
The results showed that, after treatment with insecticide preparations, the quantity of soluble proteins increased whereas the activity of the PR proteins was lower than control leaves, and terpenoid aldehydes having anti-feedant properties also increased.
Application of chitosan Bombyxmori and its derivatives in cotton-growing
It was found that the polymeric disinfectant Uzchitan is non-toxic, ecology-safe, easily utilized in soil, assists suppress of pathogenic organisms, stimulates germinating power, growth, plant


Induction of peroxidase as a disease resistance response in resistant (Hibiscus trionum) and susceptible (Althea armeniaca) species in the family malvaceae
The pathogen-induced biosynthesis of peroxidase (PO) in resistant and susceptible wild species of Malvaceae was studied and Hibiscus trionum was found to be resistant to the wilt pathogen and Althea armeniaca was susceptible.
Active changes of lignification-related enzymes in pepper response to Glomus intraradices and/or Phytophthora capsici.
The results suggested that G. intraradices is a potentially effective protection agent against P. capsici and the inoculation of antagonistic G. intrusion alleviates root mortality, activates changes of lignification-related enzymes and induces some of the isozymes in pepper plants infected by P. Capsici.
Active oxygen-associated control of rice blast disease by riboflavin and roseoflavin.
It is suggested that the rise in active oxygen production favors a forthcoming hypersensitive reaction, and both phenomena contribute to resistance induced by flavo-compounds.
Localization of hydrogen peroxide accumulation during the hypersensitive reaction of lettuce cells to Pseudomonas syringae pv phaseolicola.
Quantitative analysis indicated a prolonged burst of H2O2 occurring between 5 to 8 hr after inoculation in cells undergoing the HR during this example of non-host resistance, which is consistent with its direct role as an antimicrobial agent and as the cause of localized membrane damage at sites of bacterial attachment.
Two pathogen-responsive genes in parsley encode a tyrosine-rich hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein (hrgp) and an anionic peroxidase
In situ hybridization experiments demonstrate the presence of HRGP and peroxidase mRNAs in parsley tissue around fungal infection sites, providing further evidence for an important role of specific cell wall modifications in plant defense.

Cell wall stiffening catalyzed by POD is possibly involved in the regulation of root growth reduction caused by ABA.
Recent advances in understanding the origin of the apoplastic oxidative burst in plant cells.
In vivo studies of the oxidative burst have shown that the alkalinisation is essential and the underlying ion fluxes may be regulated by cAMP, andCalcium fluxes are also essential.
Identification and characterisation of Ca2+-pectate binding peroxidases inArabidopsis thaliana
It is suggested that some of the Arabidopsis peroxidases have an affinity for pectin in vivo, which could allow them to be properly distributed within the cell wall network.
Cytochemical Detection of Cell Wall Bound Peroxidase in Rust Infected Broad Bean Leaves
Cell wall bound peroxidase activity, cytochemically detected by 3,3-diaminobenzidine (DAB), appears unevenly distributed in areolae of broad bean (cv. Aguadulce) leaves infected by the rust fungus
