Title: Putrescine overproduction negatively impacts the oxidative state of poplar cells in culture

Author: Mohapatra, Sridev; Minocha, Rakesh; Long, Stephanie;

Date: 2009

Source: Plant Physiology and Biochemistry 47: 262-271.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: While polyamines (PAs) have been suggested to protect cells against Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), their catabolism is known to generate ROS. We compared the activities of several enzymes and cellular metabolites involved in the ROS scavenging pathways in two isogenic cell lines of poplar (Populus nigra × maximowiczii) differing in their PA contents.

Keywords: ascorbate, glutathione, oxidative state, polyamines, populus, reactive oxygen species
