Nitric Oxide and Reactive Oxygen Species Interactions in Plant Tolerance and Adaptation to Stress Factors

  • Renata Bączek-Kwinta


The research on the regulatory role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in plants’ life indisputably proved the involvement of these compounds in numerous life processes, including developmental and stress ones. Generation of both ROS and RNS occurs concomitantly, leading to some specific plant responses, and each group of compound interacts with the other one, which involves complexity and is sometimes difficult to understand and study. For this reason, the chapter will integrate the papers on biotic and abiotic stress response and provides an overview of the molecular mechanism of:
  • ROS/RNS signalling

  • The phenotypic response

  • The perspective of use ROS and RNS in biotechnology and food production
