CDNA microarray assessment for ozone-stressed Arabidopsis thaliana

Environ Pollut. 2002;117(2):191-4. doi: 10.1016/s0269-7491(01)00320-7.


Various detrimental factors in the environment damage plants, resulting in growth inhibition or withering. However, it is not easy to identify causal factors by visually inspecting the damaged plants. Therefore, we have developed a sensitive and reliable method for plant diagnosis, based on measuring changes in expression of a set of genes in a DNA microarray. With this method, we have been able to detect and discriminate between plants stressed by ozone, drought, or wounding.
