abstract
The project aims to identify signal molecules involved by the induction of SOD-gen expression although involved by an oxidative stress protection mechanism in plants. Based on known data, components which modify the redox potential of the cell, suchas, thiols, hydrogenperoxid, ammoniumpersulphate and methylviologen, are possible candidate. At the other sitecompatment-specific fatty acids will be evaluated.
