- ... Ascorbate (AsA) is an important antioxidant that can scavenge reactive oxygen species to protect plant cells against oxidative stress. Guanosine 5'-diphosphate (GDP)-L-galactose phosphorylase (GGP) is a key enzyme in the AsA biosynthetic pathway. To investigate the functions of GGP in AsA synthesis and oxidative stress tolerance in tomato, antisense lines with a reduced expression of SlGGP were ob ...
