Cadmium (Cd) in soil poses a major threat to plant growth and productivity. In the present experiment, we studied the effect of calcium (Ca(2+)) and/or potassium (K(+)) on the antioxidant system, accumulation of proline (Pro), malondialdehyde (MDA), and content of photosynthetic pigments, cadmium (Cd) and nutrients, i.e., Ca(2+) and K(+) in leaf of Vicia(More)
In the present study, N and S assimilation, antioxidant enzymes activity, and yield were studied in N and S-treated plants of Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. & Coss. (cvs. Chuutki and Radha) under salt stress. The treatments were given as follows: (1) NaCl90 mM+N0S0 mg kg-1 sand (control), (2) NaCl90 mM+N60S0 mg kg-1 sand, (3) NaCl90 mM+N60S20 mg kg-1 sand, (4)(More)
Like other abiotic stresses, boron (B) toxicity is an important environmental constraint that limits crop productivity worldwide. B toxicity alters many physiological processes necessary for plant survival. The aim of the present study was to investigate the individual and combined effects of calcium (Ca) and B on morphological and physiological attributes(More)
Soil salinity is one of the important environmental factors that produce serious agricultural problems. The objective of the present study was to determine the interactive effect of salicylic acid (SA) and calcium (Ca) on plant growth, photosynthetic pigments, proline (Pro) concentration, carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity and activities of antioxidant(More)
Vicia faba L. (faba bean) is an important legume and is cultivated essentially as a cool-season crop. Changes in sowing dates and lack of precipitation expose faba bean crop to drought and heat stresses. The gradual rise in global temperatures owing to climate change is likely to exacerbate the detrimental effects of hot and dry climatic conditions on faba(More)
Drought stress is one of the major abiotic stresses that are a threat to crop production worldwide. Drought stress impairs the plants growth and yield. Therefore, the aim of the present experiment was to select the tolerant genotype/s on the basis of moprpho-physiological and biochemical characteristics of 10 Vicia faba genotypes (Zafar 1, Zafar 2, Shebam,(More)
We cloned and characterized the full-length coding sequence of a small heat shock protein 17.9 gene from faba bean encoding 160 amino acids and containing the conserved α-crystallin domain at the C-terminus. Homology and phylogenetic analysis suggested its proximity with the class II sHsp members of fabaceae family. Therefore, we name this gene as(More)
