Hormonal Effects of an Enzymatically Hydrolyzed Animal Protein-Based Biostimulant (Pepton) in Water-Stressed Tomato Plants
Biostimulants may promote growth or alleviate the negative effects of abiotic stress on plant growth eventually resulting in enhanced yields. We examined the mechanism of action of an enzymaticallyExpand

An Enzymatically Hydrolyzed Animal Protein-Based Biostimulant (Pepton) Increases Salicylic Acid and Promotes Growth of Tomato Roots Under Temperature and Nutrient Stress
Biostimulants may be particularly interesting for application in agricultural and horticultural crops since they can exert a growth-promoting effect on roots. This may be important for promotingExpand

Efectos hormonales de un bioestimulante basado en proteínas animales hidrolizadas enzimáticamente (Pepton) en plantas de tomate sometidas a estrés hídrico
Los bioestimulantes han acumulado interes debido a su capacidad de mejora del crecimiento de las plantas y la tolerancia al estres abiotico. La mayoria de los estudios se centran en sus efectos, peroExpand
Contrasting patterns of hormonal and photoprotective isoprenoids in response to stress in Cistus albidus during a Mediterranean winter
Seasonal accumulation of hormonal and photoprotective isoprenoids, particularly α-tocopherol, carotenoids and abscisic acid, indicate their important role in protecting Cistus albidus plants fromExpand
Linking jasmonates with vitamin E accumulation in plants: a case study in the Mediterranean shrub Cistus albidus L.
MAIN CONCLUSION Jasmonic acid positively modulates vitamin E accumulation, but the latter can also partly influence the capacity to accumulate the jasmonic acid precursor, 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid,Expand
Differential accumulation of tocochromanols in photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic tissues of strawberry plants subjected to reiterated water deficit.
Tocochromanols are a group of lipid-soluble antioxidants that include tocopherols, tocotrienols and plastochromanol-8. Here, we examined a putative differential accumulation of tocochromanols inExpand
Inter-individual and sun orientation driven variability reveals antagonistic salicylate and jasmonate accumulation in white-leaved rockrose
Abstract Salicylates and jasmonates may act synergically or antagonically depending on the plant growth conditions, biotic and abiotic stress factors to which plants are exposed to, and the tissueExpand
