Extraction of Root Apoplastic Wall Fluid for Apoplastic Peroxidase Activity Assay
Author:  Xiyan Li, date: 09/05/2011, view: 10900, Q&A: 0
Plant roots secret a lot of peroxidases to counteract environmental influences. This protocol describes a way to extract root apoplastic wall fluid from Arabidopsis plants and to determine the peroxidase activity using guaiacol as substrate.
Arabidopsis Growing Protocol – A General Guide
