Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Measurement in Arabidopsis Guard Cells in Response to Biotic and Abiotic Stresses


Methods Mol Biol. 2024;2832:205-212. doi: 10.1007/978-1-0716-3973-3_14.


One of the major plant stress level indicators is reactive oxygen species (ROS). They have been known to play a central role in regulating plant responses to various environmental stresses. This book chapter specifically covers abiotic stress induced by a drought hormone abscisic acid and biotic stress induced by Pseudomonas syringe DC3000 on single cell-type guard cells. We describe in detail the measurement of ROS production starting from sample preparation to data analysis by fluorescence intensity acquisition using ImageJ software. We discussed the problems faced while performing the experiment and addressed how to overcome them by providing specific guidelines to ensure high quality repeatable data.
