Project: Stress in higher plants : induction of reactive oxygen species and responses to different stress factors.
- project duration
- 01-DEC-97 – 31-DEC-01
- In the frame of this project research will be performed on three well-defined stress situations : 1) wounding and in vitro culture, 2) influence of heavy metals, 3) elicitor treatment and infection with pathogens.An intensive collaboration between the four participating labs will be realised. The emphasis will be on similar extraction quantification and detection after different stress treatments of free radicals (via EPR) and anti-oxidant enzymes. This approach will lead to a continuous evaluation and comparison of the induced defence mechanisms.
