    Boron toxicity tolerance mediated by H2 during rice seed germination

    Boron (B) is essential for plant growth, but hazardous when present in excess. Hydrogen gas (H2) possesses antioxidant properties. Wang et al. investigate B-induced biological responses during rice (Oryza sativa) seed germination to study the beneficial role of H2. In addition to the capacity of H2 to re-establish equilibrium where there is a reactive oxygen […] More
