NO donors have been widely used to circumvent the difficulties inherent in working with a reactive gas, but NO donors do not deliver NO at a constant rate for prolonged periods of time. Furthermore, some...
UDP-glucose dehydrogenase (UDPGDH) activity was detected in extracts of maize cell-cultures and developing leaves. The reaction product was confirmed as UDP-glucuronate. Leaf extracts from null mutants defective in one or both of the ethanol dehydrogenase genes, ADH1 and ADH2 , had similar UDPGDH...
