Spontaneously-regenerated Nicotiana tabacum plantlets from hairy roots expressing a fungal elicitor protein β-cryptogein were assessed for their antioxidative responses. Enhanced activities of antioxidant enzymes as well as increased accumulation of non-enzymatic antioxidants such as chlorogenic acid were noted in Ri-crypt-transformed plantlets (RCTP) as compared to Ri-transformed plantlets (RTP). Although total phenolics, flavonoids and lignin content were boosted in RCTP, the contents of… CONTINUE READING
