Effects of sugars on the development of hypothermia-induced oxidative stress were studied in leaves of two potato genotypes (Solanum tuberosum L., cv. Désirée): with normal carbohydrate metabolism and a genotype with increased sugar content modified by insertion of yeast-derived invertase gene. It was found that generation of proceeds more actively in transformed plants than in control plants. On the contrary H2O2 concentration and the catalese and peroxidase activities were lower. At the same time, the activities of superoxide dismutase were similar in plants of both genotypes. A short-term incubation of plants at −7°C confirmed that a higher freezing tolerance of transformed plants was due to low-molecular-weight components of antioxidant protection system rather than to enzymatic component. Literature data and experimental results suggest that the protective effect of sugars is caused by their ability to scavenge ROS nonspecifically under stress conditions
