The capacity of H 2 O 2 , the most stable of the reactive oxygen species (ROI), to diffuse freely across biological membranes and to signal gene expression suggests that H 2 O 2 could function as a short-lived second messenger diffusing from cell to cell. We tested this hypothesis in tobacco plants treated with a glycoprotein elicitor. Applied at 50 nM, it induces H 2 O 2 accumulation and the hypersensitive response restricted to the infiltrated zone 1 tissue.
