The rice Os01g0106400 was reported as OsIRL in 2009  by researchers from Korea.
- OsIRL plays an important role in homeostasis of ROS.
- OsIRL transgenic rice line activated by ABA treatment was tolerant against MV and G/GO-induced stress in rice leave and suspension-cultured cells.
- Using Northern and Western blot analyses, the OsIRL gene and protein were shown to be down-regulated in young seedling roots treated with reduced glutathione (GSH) and diphenyleneiodonium (DPI), known quenchers of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
- The OsIRL transcript level in rice suspension-cultured cells was also found to be induced by oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2 ), ferric chloride (FeCl3), methyl viologen (MV) and glucose/glucose oxidase (G/GO), but down-regulated when co-treated with GSH.
