Effect of nitric oxide donors (sodium nitroprusside and sodium nitrite) on the state of stomata of Arabidopsis wild-type plants (Col-0), mutants defective in jasmonate signaling (jin1, coi1, jar1) and salicylate-deficient NahG transformants was studied. Treatment of rosette leaves epidermis by nitric oxide donors caused a decrease in stomata aperture size and an amount of open stomata in both wild-type plants and mutants defective in jasmonate signaling. NO donors-treated NahG transformants with a reduced salicylic acid have also showed a decrease in stomata aperture size. However, the number of open stomata in sodium nitrite-treated transformants was significantly less then that in plants of other genotypes. Possible cross-talks in between of signal mediators and plant hormones at regulation of the stomatal apparatus in plants of Arabidopsis are discussed.
