Screening salt-sensitive mutants is a powerful method to identify genes associated with salt tolerance. We used forward genetic screening with sodium azide-mutated rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. Tainung 67) to identify mutants showing hypersensitivity to salt stress. A new mutant line, named salt hypersensitive 1 (shs1) and exhibiting a severe salt-sensitivity(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a salt-sensitive species. Salt stress can cause injury to the plant cellular membrane. Plant lipid transfer proteins (LTPs) are abundant lipid binding proteins that are important in membrane vesicle biogenesis and trafficking, however, the biological importance of LTPs on salt-stress response in rice remains unclear. Therefore,(More)
