Plants encounter a variety of environmental stresses that affect their cellular machinery and that they adapt to on a daily basis. Lipid peroxidation is one consequence, at the cellular level, of such stresses and yields cytotoxic lipid aldehydes, including 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), that react with specific sites in proteins, leading to diverse changes in… CONTINUE READING
