Susceptibility of an ascorbate-deficient mutant of Arabidopsis to high-light stress

Zeng, L.-D.; Li, M; Chow, Wah S; Peng, C L


Ascorbate is an important antioxidant involved in both enzymatic and nonenzymatic reactions in plant cells. To reveal the function of ascorbate associated with defense against photo-oxidative damage, responses of the ascorbate-deficient mutant vtc2-1 of Arabidopsis thaliana to high-light stress were investigated. After high-light treatment at 1,600 μmol(photon) m–2 s–1 for 8 h, the vtc2-1 mutant exhibited visible photo-oxidative damage. The total ascorbate content was lower, whereas...[Show more]
