Plant aldo-keto reductases (AKRs) as multi-tasking soldiers involved in diverse plant metabolic processes and stress defense: A structure-function update.
The aldo-keto reductase (AKR) superfamily comprises of a large number of primarily monomeric protein members, which reduce a broad spectrum of substrates ranging from simple sugars to potentiallyExpand

Polyphasic chlorophyll a fluorescence kinetics and leaf protein analyses to track dynamics of photosynthetic performance in mulberry during progressive drought.
Modulation of photosynthesis and the underlying mechanisms were studied in mulberry (Morus indica L. genotype V1) under progressive drought stress conditions. Five months old potted mulberry plantsExpand

Aldose reductase in rice (Oryza sativa L.): stress response and developmental specificity.
Aldose reductase (AR) protein and enzyme (alditol: NAD (P)(+) 1-oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.1.21) activity have been identified in mature seeds of indica rice cultivars. The protein begins to accumulateExpand

Differential degradation of photosystem I subunits under iron deficiency in rice.
Rice (Oryza sativa) is one of the staple foods of the world. Iron (Fe) deficiency is a major abiotic stress factor that contributes world-wide to losses in crop yield and decline in nutritionalExpand

Delayed flowering is associated with lack of photosynthetic acclimation in Pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L.) grown under elevated CO₂.
In the present study, we investigated the likely consequences of future atmospheric CO2 concentrations [CO2] on growth, physiology and reproductive phenology of Pigeonpea. A short duration PigeonpeaExpand

Genotypic variation in tolerance to drought stress is highly coordinated with hydraulic conductivity–photosynthesis interplay and aquaporin expression in field-grown mulberry (Morus spp.)
Hydraulic conductivity quantifies the efficiency of a plant to transport water from root to shoot and is a major constriction on leaf gas exchange physiology. Mulberry (Morus spp.) is the mostExpand

Leaf gas exchange physiology in rice genotypes infected with bacterial blight: An attempt to link photosynthesis with disease severity and rice yield
Bacterial blight (BB) of rice caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), is one of the most devastating disease of rice causing significant yield reduction under serious infestations in many riceExpand
