The effect of the brassinosteroids (BS) 24-epibrassinolide and 24-epicastasterone on the thermoresistance of wheat coleoptiles (Triticum aestivum L.) and their generation of the superoxide anion radical and antioxidant enzymes activity were investigated. The treatment of coleoptiles with 10 nM solutions of BS caused a transient increase in O 2 ⊙− generation and a subsequent increase in the activity of superoxide dismutase and catalase and an improvement in heat resistance. Pretreatment of… CONTINUE READING
