[Collection of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants with altered sensitivity to oxidative stress inductors].


PMID 15926316

Abstract

Selective systems for screening Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. mutants with altered sensitivity to the oxidative stress (OS) inductors norflurazon (NF), acifluorfen (AF), and plumbagin (PB) were developed and a collection of 28 mutants was obtained. Dwarf and necrotic forms predominated among the NF-tolerant mutants, while pigment mutants and those with changed root morphology prevailed among the AF-tolerant and PB-sensitive mutants, respectively. Genetic and biochemical analysis of certain mutants was performed; quantitative and qualitative changes in the content of superoxide dismutase and peroxidase isoforms have been revealed. These data, complemented by the data on the cross-tolerance (sensitivity) of the mutants to paraquat, indicate a correlation between tolerance to the OS inductors and the functions of antioxidant systems.
