The roles that ozone and nitric oxide (NO), the chief O-3 precursor, play in the antioxidative balance and inducible volatile emissions of lima bean were assessed. Exposure to O-3 inhibited APX, CAT, and GR, decreased GSH content and induced emissions of (E)-beta-ocimene, limonene, 1,8-cineole, linalool, (E)-4,8-dimethyl-1,3,7-nonatriene (E)-DMNT, 2-butanone and nonanal. O-3 did not induce emissions of (E)-beta-caryophyllene and appeared to reduce the antioxidative capacity of plants to a greater extent than NO and NO followed by O-3 (NO/O-3) treatments. There were significant differences in emissions of (E)-beta-ocimene and linalool between NO/O-3 treated plants and controls, but no differences in antioxidant concentrations. A model to explain the relationships between the ascorbate-glutathione cycle and O-3 and NO inducible volatiles was proposed. Our findings suggest that prior exposure to NO modulates the oxidative effect of ozone by the process of cross-tolerance, which might regulate the antioxidative system and induction of volatile organic compounds.
