Protecting cotton photosynthesis during moderate chilling at high light intensity by increasing chloroplastic
antioxidant enzyme activity.
However, the MALDITOF-MS data analysis did not indicate if it is the cytoplasmic or the chloroplastic
form of the enzyme.

(2001) which observed that salt-stress spread mitochondrial activities and chloroplastic
antioxidant enzymes in leaf, offering a protection for cells against superoxide.

Circadian oscillations of cytosolic and chloroplastic

Pyramiding of chloroplastic
and mitochondrial Mn-superoxide dismutases in alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) resulted in lower biomass production as compared with the transgenic plants expressing either one of the Mn-superoxide dismutases (Samis et al., 2002).
In such studies, effects of the chloroplastic
resistance mutation may be confounded with effects of differences in nuclear genome-controlled traits between TR and TS populations (Gressel and Ben Sinai, 1985; Holt, 1988).
The genes retained in the mitochondrial genomes have been proposed preferentially to encode core proteins involved in electron transfers , and a colocalization of the redox regulation (CoRR) mechanism was proposed to explain why the mitochondrial and chloroplastic
organelles retain their own genes, or proteins [33, 34].

copper/zinc superoxide dismutase genes in wheat," Plant Physiology, vol.
Higher plants have a cytosolic and chloroplastic
form of the enzyme (Lara et al., 1984).
Moreover, photosynthesis rates (A) and the depletion of 13C in leaves are directly related to the chloroplastic
P of CO2 (Pc) rather than to Pi (Loreto et al., 1992; Centritto et al., 2003; Loreto and Centritto, 2008).
