Oxygen radicals play both pathological and physiological roles in biological systems. The detection of such radicals is difficult due to their transient nature and the presence of highly efficient antioxidant mechanisms. In plants the physiological role of oxygen is twofold, oxygen is produced by the oxidation of water and consumed as an electron acceptor. The direct involvement of oxygen in photosynthetic events exposes the photosynthetic apparatus to a high probability of damage by oxygen… Expand
Detection of Reactive Oxygen Species in Higher Plants
TLDR
It is concluded that using two or more independent methods that yield similar results for detection is a reliable means for studying ROS in intact plant tissues. Expand
The production and scavenging of reactive oxygen species in the plastoquinone pool of chloroplast thylakoid membranes.
TLDR
The evidence indicates that the PQ-pool has a dual role: not only the scavenging of superoxide, but also the generation of hydrogen peroxide as an important signaling molecule, and the regulatory and protective functions of the PZ-pool are discussed in the context of these reactions. Expand

TLDR
The review points out the mechanistic aspects in the production of ROS on both the electron acceptor and electron donor side of PSII. Expand
Participation of photosynthetic electron transport in production and scavenging of reactive oxygen species.
TLDR
It is proposed that ROS generation in the plastoquinone pool and the possible formation of hydroperoxides in the vicinity of photosystem II are key processes participating in the primary stages of redox signaling. Expand
Effect of Mn cluster on the formation of Superoxide radicals in photoinhibition of photosystem II
To further realize the action of Superoxide radicals (O2-.) in photoinhibition of photosystem H (PS II), we employed 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline-N-oxide (DMPO) as a spin trap, associated with EPRExpand

TLDR
It is pointed out here that both the formation and the scavenging of ROS are controlled by the energy level and the redox potential of the excitation energy transfer and the electron transport carries. Expand
Study on the photo-generation of superoxide radicals in Photosystem II with EPR spin trapping techniques
TLDR
Direct EPR evidence of the photo-generation of superoxide radicals (O2−.) was obtained by using a novel spin trapping probe in spinach Photosystem II (PS II) membrane fragments, showing that the oxygen-evolving system is involved in O2−. Expand
Generation and scavenging of reactive oxygen species in chloroplasts : a submolecular approach
The specific traits of oxygen chemistry are examined as a basis of the step-wise electron acceptance by O 2 , giving rise to incompletely reduced highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) comprising bothExpand
Production of Reactive Oxygen Species by Photosystem II as a Response to Light and Temperature Stress
TLDR
The understanding of molecular basis for ROS production by PSII provides new insight into how plants survive under adverse environmental conditions. Expand
Hydroxyl radical generation by photosystem II.
TLDR
The photogeneration of hydroxyl radicals (OH(*)) in photosystem II (PSII) membranes was studied using EPR spin-trapping spectroscopy and indicated that OH(*) is produced on the electron acceptor side of PSII by two different routes. Expand

The one-electron transfer redox potentials of free radicals. I. The oxygen/superoxide system.
TLDR
The value determined for the redox potentials of O 2/O2 is higher by more than 0.2 V than earlier estimates, which has important implications on the possible role of O2 in biological processes of O1 fixation. Expand
Formation and decay of monodehydroascorbate radicals in illuminated thylakoids as determined by EPR spectroscopy
Abstract H 2 O 2 is reduced by an ascorbate-specific peroxidase (APX) in chloroplasts, generating the monodehydroascorbate (MDA) radical as the primary oxidation product. Using EPR spectroscopy weExpand
Univalent reduction of molecular oxygen by spinach chloroplasts on illumination.
TLDR
Spinach chloroplasts induced the photoreduction of cytochrome c and photooxidation of epinephrine, both of which depended on oxygen and were inhibited by superoxide dismutase, and it is proposed that the univalent reducing site of oxygen is a primary electron acceptor in Photosystem I. Expand

TLDR
Monodehydroascorbate radical was determined in leaf segments of several plant species using electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometry, indicating the participation of the photoproduced superoxide and the hydrogen peroxide derived from the superoxide in the production of MDA in chloroplasts.

TLDR
The evolution of oxygen by illuminated chloroplasts does not involve the intermediate production of H 2 O 2 in a form available to the enzyme catalase, and there is no evidence of a generalized reducing power in plants as part of the photosynthetic mechanism. Expand
The electrochromic signal, redox reactions in the cytochrome bf complex and photosystem functionality in photoinhibited tobacco leaf segments
TLDR
Both PS I and the cy tochrome bf complex appeared to be fully functional after treatment of tobacco leaves with photoinhibitory light at room temperature, suggesting enhanced electrogenic charge transfer across the cytochrome b f complex as part of a path of electron flow involving PS I. Expand
The involvement of photosystem II‐generated H2O2 in photoinhibition
TLDR
It is proposed that preparations become photoinhibed by reactions with H2O2 produced via oxidation of water by the Cl−‐depleted OEC and by reduction of O2 at the QB site when PSII is illuminated without an electron acceptor. Expand
Ubisemiquinone is the electron donor for superoxide formation by complex III of heart mitochondria.
TLDR
Experiments with succinate as electron donor in the presence of antimycin A in intact rat heart mitochondria showed that myxothiazol, which inhibits reduction of the Rieske iron-sulfur center, prevented formation of hydrogen peroxide, determined spectrophotometrically as the H2O2-peroxidase complex.
