  • 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid promotes S-nitrosylation and oxidation of actin affecting cytoskeleton and peroxisomal dynamics 

    Rodríguez-Serrano, M.; Pazmino, D.M.; Sparkes, Imogen; Rochetti, A.; Hawes, Chris; Romero-Puertas, M.C.; Sandalio, L.M. (Oxford University Press (OUP) for Society for Experimental Biology (SEB), 2014-06-09)
    2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) is a synthetic auxin used as a herbicide to control weeds in agriculture. A high concentration of 2,4-D promotes leaf epinasty and cell death. In this work, the molecular mechanisms ...
