High K+ supply avoids Na+ toxicity and improves photosynthesis by allowing favorable K+:Na+ ratios through the inhibition of Na+ uptake and transport to the shoots of Jatropha curcas plants.
This study assessed the relationships between external K+ supply and K+ : Na+ ratios associated with Na+ toxicity in Jatropha curcas. Plants were exposed to increasing external K+ concentrationsExpand
Antioxidative enzymatic protection in leaves of two contrasting cowpea cultivars under salinity
The aim of this work was to investigate the role of the antioxidant enzymes in salt tolerance comparing the salt-sensitive (Pérola) and a salt-tolerant (Pitiúba) cultivar of cowpea [Vigna unguiculataExpand
Source-sink regulation of cotyledonary reserve mobilization during cashew (Anacardium occidentale) seedling establishment under NaCl salinity.
Seedling establishment is a critical process to crop productivity, especially under saline conditions. This work was carried out to investigate the hypothesis that reserve mobilization is coordinatedExpand
Involvement of cation channels and NH4+-sensitive K+ transporters in Na+ uptake by cowpea roots under salinity
Na+ accumulation was investigated in the roots of 11-d-old cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] plants. The relative contribution of different membrane transporters on Na+ uptake was estimated byExpand
High temperature positively modulates oxidative protection in salt-stressed cashew plants
Abstract This work evaluated the oxidative protection mechanisms triggered by high temperatures in salt-stressed cashew ( Anacardium occidentale ) plants. In the first experiment, cashew plants in aExpand
Salt stress differentially regulates mobilization of carbon and nitrogen reserves during seedling establishment of Pityrocarpa moniliformis.
Seedling establishment is a critical step in environment colonization by higher plants that frequently occurs under adverse conditions. Thus, we carried out an integrated analysis of seedling growth,Expand
Differences in Cowpea Root Growth Triggered by Salinity and Dehydration are Associated with Oxidative Modulation Involving Types I and III Peroxidases and Apoplastic Ascorbate
The aim of this work was to investigate the balance between the activities of ascorbate peroxidase (APX) and phenol peroxidases (POD) and cowpea root growth in response to dehydration and saltExpand
Changes in physiological indicators associated with salt tolerance in two contrasting cashew rootstocks
L.) rootstocks in response to salt stress. The tolerant CCP 09 genotype showed better growthperformance after two weeks under a large range of NaCl salinity (50, 100, 150 and 200 mM). The NaClExpand
Salt-induced changes in antioxidative enzyme activities in root tissues do not account for the differential salt tolerance of two cowpea cultivars
The salt stress effect in root growth and antioxidative response were investigated in two cowpea cultivars which differ in salt tolerance in terms of plant growth and leaf oxidative response.Expand
