Regulation of alternative oxidase activity in six wild monocotyledonous species. An in vivo study at the whole root level.

The activity of the alternative pathway is affected by a number of factors, including the level and reduction state of the alternative oxidase (AOX) protein, and the reduction state of the ubiquinone pool. To investigate the significance of these factors for the rate of alternative respiration in vivo, we studied root respiration of six wild… (More)
