Spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) plants were acclimated to 1° C or maintained at 18° C under the same light regime (260–300 μmol photons·m−2·s−1). The cold acclimation led to several metabolic and biochemical changes that apparently include improved protection of the photosynthetic apparatus against active oxygen species. In particular, cold-acclimated leaves exhibited a considerably higher ascorbate content and significantly increased activities of superoxide dismutase, ascorbate peroxidase, and… CONTINUE READING
