Regulation of stomatal responses to abiotic and biotic stresses by redox state

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Guard cells change their turgor pressure and consequently adjust stomatal apertures in response to a variety of abiotic and biotic stresses. The stomatal movements are regulated by sophisticated and refined redox-dependent signal transduction mechanisms in the guard cells, in which reactive oxygen species (ROS), glutathione, ascorbic acid, and the related enzymes are involved. In this chapter, we summarize how redox-dependent signaling is controlled and transduced into stomatal movements in guard cells and discuss the molecular mechanisms.
