Luminol-based Assay for Detection of Immunity Elicitor-induced Hydrogen Peroxide Production in Arabidopsis thaliana Leaves
Authors:  Nora Gigli Bisceglia, Matteo Gravino and Daniel V. Savatin, date: 12/20/2015, view: 6554, Q&A: 0
In Arabidopsis thaliana, one of the very early immune-related responses induced after elicitor perception is the oxidative burst, i.e., reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation including superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide (H2 ...
Camalexin Quantification in Arabidopsis thaliana Leaves Infected with Botrytis cinerea
Phytoalexins are heterogeneous low molecular mass secondary metabolites with antimicrobial activity produced at the infection site in response to pathogen invasion and represent an important part of the plant defense repertoire. Camalexin ...
