Plants show various responses to phosphorus (P) deficiency. Root oxidizing capacity enhancement is one of adaptive mechanisms for rice (Oryza sativa L.) to P deficiency. However, it remains unclear how P deficiency enhances the root oxidizing capacity. In this study, rice seedlings were treated in P-deficient nutrient solution for different periods. Variations of reactive oxygen species (ROS), antioxidant enzyme activity, root lignin content, root porosity, root oxygen release, total oxidative… CONTINUE READING
