- ... Hydrogen peroxide (H₂O₂) is involved in plant defense responses that follow mechanical damage, such as those that occur during herbivore or insect attacks, as well as pathogen attack. H₂O₂ accumulation is induced during wound healing processes as well as by treatment with the wound signal jasmonic acid. Plant polyamine oxidases (PAOs) are H₂O₂ producing enzymes supposedly involved in cell wall dif ...
