We studied oxidative stress and peroxidase activity resulting from application of excess copper in the nutrient medium on the roots of young bean seedlings. The change in H 2 O 2 content, lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes activities were quantified and located. Excess of copper caused a loss of membrane integrity and the formation of hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) as visualized in the transmission electron microscopy and measured using spectrophotometry. H 2 O 2 accumulated in the intercellular spaces and in the cell wall. The production of H 2 O 2 was accompanied by an increase in the activity of soluble and ionic GPX (guaiacol peroxidase, EC 1.11.17), CAPX (coniferyl alcohol peroxidase) and NADH oxidase.
