Phthalic Acid Induces Oxidative Stress and Alters the Activity of Some Antioxidant Enzymes in Roots of Malus prunifolia

Abstract

Apple replant is a widespread agricultural problem documented in all of the major fruit-growing regions of the world. In order to better understand the phytotoxic mechanisms induced by allelochemicals involved with this problem, Malus prunifolia plants were grown hydroponically to the six-leaf-stage in the presence of phthalic acid (0 or 1 mM) for 5, 10, or… (More)
