Furthermore, the H2O2-responsive genes are expressed similarly in seedlings germinated from H2O2-treated and untreated hulled seeds— a finding that strongly confirms that antioxidant germination inhibitors block the pathway controlled by H2O2 at the level of gene expression. The genes under the control of H2O2 include those for pathogenesis-related and systemic acquired resistance (SAR) DNA binding proteins, and this situation likely accounts for the low frequency of growth impairment due to onset of disease in the plants pretreated with H2O2.
