Salt stress is among the major abiotic stresses that adversely affect the global crop production and its adverse impacts are getting more serious in the regions where saline water is used for irrigation. It induces reactive oxygen species, alters the activity of antioxidant system and adversely affects the process of photosynthesis. Various strategies have(More)
The role of 28-homobrassinolide (HBL) in countering nickel-induced oxidative damage through overexpression of antioxidant enzymes and proline in Vigna radiata has been investigated. Two varieties of V. radiata, one sensitive to Ni (PDM-139) and the other tolerant to Ni (T-44), were sown in the soil fed with different levels (0, 50, 100 or 150 mg kg−1) of(More)
β-Carotene has been established as a known free radical scavenger with chain-breaking antioxidant properties. It has been documented for the treatment of epileptic convulsions at a 200 mg/kg body weight dose. The reported pathogenesis for epileptic convulsions is oxidative stress. Hence, experimental epileptic convulsions via oxidative stress was induced in(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in minute quantity serves as a signalling molecule. However, the role of H2O2 in combination with brassinosteroids (stress regulators) in plants under toxic levels of copper, is poorly understood. With an aim to explore and elaborate their role in plants subjected to abiotic stress, the surface sterilized seeds of mung bean (Vigna(More)
