By using an in vivo hydroponic rice seedling culture system, we investigated the physiological and biochemical responses of a model rice japonica cultivar Nipponbare to salt stress using proteomics and classical biochemical methods. Yoshida's nutrient solution (YS) was used to grow rice seedlings. YS-grown 18-day-old seedlings manifested highly stable and(More)
The decrease in catalase activity and its relationship to change in salicylic acid content were investigated in rice, wheat, and cucumber seedlings exposed to oxidative stresses. A decrease in chlorophyll fluorescence (ΔF/Fm′), measured as an indicator of the oxidative stress, and a drop in catalase activity were observed following treatment with NaCl in(More)
We describe the gene expression profile of third leaves of rice (cv. Nipponbare) seedlings subjected to salt stress (130 mM NaCl). Transcripts of Mn-SOD, Cu/Zn-SOD,cytosolic and stromal APX, GR and CatB were regulated, whereas expression of thylakoid-bound APX and CatA were down-regulated. The levels of the compatible solute proline and of transcripts of(More)
Nitrogen fertilization is essential for increasing rice production to meet the food demands of increasing world’s population. We established an in vivo hydroponic rice seedling culture system to investigate physio-biochemical/molecular responses of various rice japonica and indica cultivars to low nitrogen (N). Three-week-old seedlings grown in Yoshida’s(More)
Drought and heat are among the major abiotic stresses that affect soybean crops worldwide. During the current investigation, the effect of drought, heat, and drought plus heat stresses was compared in the leaves of two soybean varieties, Surge and Davison, combining 2D-DIGE proteomic data with physiology and biochemical analyses. We demonstrated how 25(More)
Germinated soy germ (GSG) were developed and evaluated for their nutritional value. Separated soy germ was germinated at room temperature for 24h under running water. As germination progressed, the protein and fibre content of GSG increased slightly, while the lipid and carbon to nitrogen (C/N) ratio decreased; free amino acids including GABA increased(More)
Untimely rains in wheat fields during harvest season can cause pre-harvest sprouting (PHS), which deteriorates the yield and quality of wheat crop. Metabolic homeostasis of the embryo plays a role in seed dormancy, determining the status of the maturing grains either as dormant (PHS-tolerant) or non-dormant (PHS-susceptible). Very little is known for direct(More)
Rice is one of the most important food and cereal crop plants in the world. Rice proteomics began in the 1990s. Since then, considerable progress has been made in establishing protocols from isolation of rice proteins from different tissues, organs, and organelles, to separation of complex proteins and to their identification by mass spectrometry. Since the(More)
