[Changes in the content of wheat germ agglutinin in hydrogen peroxide-treated plants].Prikl Biokhim Mikrobiol. 2006 Mar-Apr; 42(2):247-51.PB
The content of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) in hydrogen peroxide-treated seedlings was studied by indirect competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. WGA content in roots showed a transitory increase: at 10 mM hydrogen peroxide, maximum level was observed after 2 h; at 1 mM hydrogen peroxide, the maximum occurred 2 or 24 h after the treatment. Lectin induction by hydrogen peroxide is viewed as an element of a feedback mechanism limiting the operation of defense responses during pathogenetic processes.
