Abstract: Considerable evidence that nitric oxide (NO) and its derivatives play major roles in mammals has led to an interest in the actions of these molecules in plant metabolism. The ubiquitous distribution of nitric oxide synthases (NOS) in mammalian cells has stimulated the search for an equivalent enzyme in plants. NOS-like activity has been found in many plants and NO has been shown to influence various developmental processes and to have a role in plant defense responses against pathogens. Several of the major NO targets characterized in animals also have found similar actions in plants. These results indicate that NO is a fundamental signaling molecule for plant metabolism, as it is in animals.
