There are other cellular compartments in which production of ROS can occur as well. This enzyme catalyzes the fourelectron reduction of O2 by ubiquinone, competing for the electrons with the main respiratory chain and preventing the accumulation of over-reduced ubiquinone. This activity represents a branching of mitochondrial ETC that provides another possibility to divert the electron flow from the cytochrome oxidase pathway and to control coupling of respiration and ATP synthesis, subsequently controlling production 15 of ROS by the ETC (Blokhina and Fagerstedt 2010).

These enzymes catalyze the reduction of H2O2 or the oxidation of several substrates such as methanol, ethanol, formaldehyde, or formic acid. Catalases can be subdivided into class I, II, and III, being class I more common in photosynthetic tissues, class II are present in vascular bundle, and class III in seeds and young seedlings (Van Breusegem et al. 2001). 1 Summary of antioxidant enzyme activities found in plant tissues, their substrates, cofactors, prosthetic groups, and subcellular localization Enzyme Superoxide dismutases Substrate O2 •− Cofactors None Prosthetic groups Mn, Zn, Cu, Fe Catalases Ascorbate peroxidases H2O2 H2O2 None Ascorbate Heme Heme Glutathione peroxidases H2O2 Glutathione None 3.
