    • Ascorbate peroxidase (APx) is a class I peroxidase that catalyzes the conversion of H 2O 2 to H 2O and O 2 using ascorbate as the specific electron donor. This enzyme has a key function in scavenging reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the protection against toxic effects of ROS in higher plants, algae, and Euglena...

    • Ascorbate peroxidase (AP) is a key enzyme that scavenges potentially harmful H2O2 and thus prevents oxidative damage in plants, especially in N2-fixing legume root nodules. The present study demonstrates that the nodule endodermis of alfalfa (Medicago sativa) root nodules contains elevated levels of AP protein, as well as the corresponding mRNA transcript and substrate (ascorbate)...

    • Ascorbate peroxidase (APX) is an important enzyme to scavenge the reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are often caused by the salt stress. Here, APX cDNA from Brassica napus was amplified by RT-PCR and cloned into the prokaryotic expression vector pGEX-6p-1 to express BnAPX as a glutathione S-transferase (GST) fusion protein. The recombinant expression plasmid was then transformed into Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) and induced with 0.2 mM IPTG at 28°C...
