The exogenous application of salicylic acid (SA) not only protects plants against stress, but also enhances their growth and productivity. In this study, proliferating shoots of Cistus heterophyllus subsp. carthaginensis, an endangered plant species, were incubated in the presence of 0, 10, 100, and 1,000 μM SA for a period of 2 months. Overall growth,(More)
Cistus heterophyllus subsp. carthaginensis is an endemic and endangered species from the SE Mediterranean coastal region of Spain. Within the framework of the efforts aiming to species conservation, in vitro culture techniques could be of interest. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant capacity of C. heterophyllus shoot cultures as a(More)
Vitis vinifera L. cv. Monastrell calli were used to evaluate the effects of long-term exposure to different salicylic acid (SA) concentrations (0.00, 0.01, 0.10 and 1.00 mM) on cell growth and phenolic metabolism. The impaired cell growth caused by high SA concentrations after the first sub-culture of cells was reverted to normal growth even in the presence(More)
