Increased tolerance to salt stress in OPDA-deficient rice ALLENE OXIDE CYCLASE mutants is linked to an increased ROS-scavenging activity
Highlight The lack of the jasmonic acid precursor 12-oxophytodienoic acid in rice led to increased salt tolerance, which is correlated with an increased ROS-scavenging activity in stress conditions.

Progressive drought alters architectural and anatomical traits of rice roots
BackgroundRoot architectural and anatomical phenotypes are important for adaptation to drought. Many rice-growing regions face increasing water scarcity. This study describes drought responses of 11Expand

Characterization of Jasmonoyl-Isoleucine (JA-Ile) Hormonal Catabolic Pathways in Rice upon Wounding and Salt Stress
BackgroundJasmonate (JA) signaling and functions have been established in rice development and response to a range of biotic or abiotic stress conditions. However, information on the molecular actorsExpand

Different forms of osmotic stress evoke qualitatively different responses in rice.
Drought, salinity and alkalinity are distinct forms of osmotic stress with serious impacts on rice productivity. We investigated, for a salt-sensitive rice cultivar, the response to osmoticallyExpand

Drought and Salinity Alter Adaptive Molecular Response in Two Genetically unlike Egyptian Rice Cultivars
Egypt, the largest rice producer in the near east and North Africa, reached the point where the insufficient irrigation water (drought) and its low quality (saline) imposed serious limitations onExpand

Development of an Efficient Regeneration System for Egyptian Cultivar(s) of Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Cultivated barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) belongs to the Triticeae in the grass family, Poaceae. Barley ranks as the world’s fourth most important cereal crop after wheat, maize and rice. It is grownExpand

Double lysis: an integrative time-saving method yielding high-quality RNA from strawberry
Background The isolation of high-quality RNA from strawberry leaves and fruits is notoriously cumbersome. Both tissues are extremely rich in active secondary metabolites, as phenolics and pigmentsExpand
