Gajhede M, Schuller DJ, Henriksen A, Smith AT & Poulos TL (1997) Crystal structure of horseradish peroxidase C at 2.15 Å resolution. In the literature, various abbreviations are used for class III plant peroxidases (POD, POX, Prx, Px, and PER) but, in accordance with gene annotations, the use of Prxs appears to be the most common choice.

In fact, H2O2 has been shown to be a diffusible signal mediating localized PCD during HR (Levine et al., 1996), as well as being involved in a systemic signalling network (Alvarez et al., 1998). Sensor types in signal transduction pathways in plant cells responding to abiotic stressors: do they depend on stress intensity?

Peroxidase plays important roles in plant response to various environmental stresses. Consistent with the notion of Prxs participating in plant defence responses, JA and MeJA positively regulate Prx gene expression (Repka et al., 2004; Ali et al., 2006; Kumari et al., 2006), but cross-talks between JA and SA in the regulation of Prxs have not been established. The list of bioactive (anti-fungal and anti-bacterial) products resulting from Prx-mediated reactions is continuously growing, as is illustrated by the following examples. In this laboratory, you will localize peroxidase in plants by a technique called .

In many cases, JA and ET co-operatively regulate defence responses.

In the literature, various abbreviations are used for class III plant peroxidases (POD, POX, Prx, Px, and PER) but, in accordance with gene annotations, the use of Prxs appears to be the most common choice. Part of Springer Nature. Prxs are frequently responsive to SA, JA or ET (El-Sayed and Verpoorte, 2004), and it is widely known that Prxs play a central role in host plant defences against necrotrophic or biotrophic pathogens (van Loon et al., 2006).

Electrolyte leakage of leaf discs presented with higher temperatures was reduced in transgenic plants, showing a higher tolerance to the heat stress. Peroxidases, a class of enzymes in animal, plant and microorganism tissues, catalyze oxidoreduction between H2O2 and various reductants. 3, however, does not exclude the possibility that, in these enzymatic reactions, (i) both O2•_ and H2O2 can be transitorily formed while [RSSR]•− is not totally consumed, (ii) O2•_ and H2O2 can be detected by fast trapping agents, and (iii) the overall reaction is inhibited by both superoxide dismutase and catalase. 2020 Jan 3;9(1):65. doi: 10.3390/plants9010065.

I really wish this was more specific about the structure and its activity.

All these results suggest that host plant cells, by means of Prxs, may generate ROS. 589: 85–91.

These observations highlight the conservation of a defence-related signalling system in the different living kingdoms throughout evolution (Nürnberger et al., 2004).
