Hydrogen Peroxide Measurement in Arabidopsis Root Tissue Using Amplex Red
Authors:  Tzvetina Brumbarova, Cham Thi Tuyet Le and Petra Bauer, date: 11/05/2016, view: 9615, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes the measurement of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content in Arabidopsis root tissue by using the Amplex® Red Hydrogen Peroxide/Peroxidase Assay Kit. When root tissue is disrupted and ...
Perls Staining for Histochemical Detection of Iron in Plant Samples
Authors:  Tzvetina Brumbarova and Rumen Ivanov, date: 09/20/2014, view: 16123, Q&A: 2
Visualization of iron (Fe) localization in plants has greatly enhanced our understanding of plant Fe homeostasis. One of the relatively simple and yet powerful techniques is the classical Perls blue stain (Perls, 1867). The technique is based on the ...

Establishment of New Split-root System by Grafting
Authors:  Xiangqiang Kong, Zhen Luo and Hezhong Dong, date: 02/20/2017, view: 5506, Q&A: 0
A new split-root system was used to simulate non-uniform salt, drought or nutrient deficiency stress in the root zone, in which the root system was divided into two or more equal portions. Here, we established a split-root system by grafting of ...

Analysis of Telomeric G-overhangs by in-Gel Hybridization
Authors:  Sona Valuchova, Elisa Derboven and Karel Riha, date: 04/05/2016, view: 5090, Q&A: 0
Telomeric DNA in majority of eukaryotes consists of an array of TG-rich tandem repeats. The TG-rich DNA strand is oriented with its 3’ end towards chromosome termini and is usually longer than its complementary CA-rich strand, thus forming 3’ single ...
