The wheat dehydrin DHN-5 represents one of the members of the LEA (Late Embryogenesis Abundant) group 2 family. It has been previously shown to play a fundamental role in plant response and adaptation to abiotic stresses. It has also exhibited heat-protecting effect on enzymatic activities. In the present work, we report a number of findings resulting from(More)
Durum wheat (Triticum turgidum ssp. durum) is one of the main species of cultivated wheat. In arid and semi-arid areas, salinity stress reduces durum wheat productivity. This study used 26 durum wheat accessions from semi-arid regions in Tunisia to analyze plant tolerance to salt stress. Salt stress was experimentally applied by regularly submerging pots in(More)
