). Ascorbate peroxidase is a H 2 O 2 -scavenging enzyme that is unique to plants and is indispensable to protect chloroplasts and other cellular constituents from damage caused by H 2 O 2 and hydroxyl radicals (•HO) produced from it ( Asada, 1992 ). Better

substrates, and it is therefore likely to be central in the defense mechanism ( Bowler et al., 1992 ). Hydrogen peroxide is scavenged by catalase (CAT) and peroxidases, which convert hydrogen peroxide to water and molecular oxygen ( Bowler et al., 1992
