The role of nitric oxide (NO) in thermotolerance acquired by heat acclimation (38°C) was investigated. Results showed that 38°C acclimation, on the one hand, obviously reduced hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and MDA contents and ion leakage degree in rice leaves; however, on the other hand, it increased the survival of rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings under 50°C heat stress. Application of nitric oxide donor, sodium nitroprusside (SNP), prior to 38°C acclimation dramatically increased the acquired thermotolerance. To elucidate the role of endogenous NO in acquired thermotolerance, 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethylimidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide (PTIO, a specific NO scavenger) was used (scavengers are used to control the level of both exogenous and endogenous NO). Results showed that PTIO pretreatment resulted in the elimination of acquired thermotolerance induced by 38°C acclimation in rice seedlings. Nitric oxide (NO) release measurement indicated that there was indeed an abrupt elevation in the NO content in 40 min after 38°C acclimation, proving the involvement of NO in acquired thermotolerance inducement in rice seedling.
