On the Occurrence of Oxidoreductases in the Apoplast of Leguminosae and Gramineae and their Significance in the Study of Plasmamembrane-Bound Redox Activities
Growing evidence is currently being gathered on the occurrence and physiological importance of plasmamembrane-bound redox systems in plants1,2. These activities are able to accept electrons from NADH and/or NADPH and to reduce both natural (O2,Fe3+) and artificial (ferricyanide, cytochrome c) substrates. Several physiological roles have been envisaged for NAD(P)H oxidases including: proton translocation3, extracellular Fe3+ reduction 4 and blue light response5.
