Non-enzmic oxidants consists of ascorbate/ic acid (AsA) (vitamin C), reduced and di-/oxidized glutathione (GSH and GSSG), retinol (vitamin A) and α, β and γ-tocopherol (vitamin E). It is possible that certain antioxidants may be operative within localized regions of higher water activity within desiccated cells. , 1999). It has been suggested to provide antioxidant protection to DNA. , 1999; Leubner-Metzger, 2005). Berjak (2006) argues that it is possible that CPR can function to protect the genome against ROS in desiccated seeds if some such regions occur in the mileu of the chromatin.

2008). , 2003; Ashraf and Foolad, 2007). Choline monooxygenase (CMO) and betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BDH) are two key enzymes for the biosynthesis of GB in higher plants. Proline, like GB, is also an important compatible organic osmolyte that plays a key role in stress tolerance (reviewed by Ashraf, 2010). Pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (PCS) is the key enzyme for proline biosynthesis. Trehalose, a nonreducing sugar, is also a potential organic osmoticum which has a substantial role in the protection of plants against stresses (reviewed by Ashraf, 2010).
