Sucrose-induced tolerance to the herbicide atrazine in Arabidopsis seedlings involves activation of oxidative and xenobiotic stress responses

Abstract : Exogenous sucrose confers to Arabidopsis seedlings a very high level of tolerance to the herbicide atrazine that cannot be ascribed to photoheterotrophic growth. Important differences of atrazine tolerance between sucrose and glucose treatments showed that activation of chloroplast biogenesis per se could not account for induced tolerance. Sucrose-induced acquisition of defence mechanisms was shown by the gene expression pattern of a chloroplastic iron superoxide dismutase and by enhancement of whole-cell glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity. Activation of these defence mechanisms depended on both soluble sugar and atrazine. Moreover, acquisition of sucrose protection was shown to unmask atrazine-induced gene expression, such as that of a cytosolic glutathione-Stransferase, which remained otherwise cryptic because of the lethal effects of atrazine in the absence of soluble sugars.
