Summary of "Nitric oxide and hydrogen sulfide crosstalk during heavy metal stress in plants."

Gases such as ethylene, hydrogen peroxide (H O ), nitric oxide (NO), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrogen sulfide (H S) have been recognized as vital signaling molecules in plants and animals. Of these gasotransmitters, NO and H S have recently gained momentum mainly because of their involvement in numerous cellular processes. It is therefore important to study their various attributes including their biosynthetic and signaling pathways. The present review provides an insight into various routes for the biosynthesis of NO and H S as well as their signaling role in plant cells under different conditions, more particularly under heavy metal stress. Their beneficial roles in the plant's protection against abiotic and biotic stresses as well as their adverse effects have been addressed. This review describes how H S and NO, being very small size molecules, can quickly pass through the cell membranes and triggers a multitude of responses to various factors, notably to various stress conditions like drought, heat, osmotic, heavy metal, and multiple biotic stresses. The versatile interactions between H S and NO involved in the different molecular pathways have been discussed. In addition to the signaling role of H S and NO, their direct role in post-translational modifications is also considered. The information provided here will be helpful to better understand the multifaceted roles of H S and NO in plants, particularly under stress conditions. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.

An NADPH-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-ARGININE and OXYGEN to produce CITRULLINE and NITRIC OXIDE.

A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.

A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in NERVE TISSUE.

A CALCIUM-independent subtype of nitric oxide synthase that may play a role in immune function. It is an inducible enzyme whose expression is transcriptionally regulated by a variety of CYTOKINES.
