Modulation of glutathione and its related enzymes in plants’ responses to toxic metals and metalloids—A review
Abstract The rapid increase in the contamination of the environment by toxic metals (TMs) and metalloids is posing serious threats to biotic communities. Plants are among the organisms mostExpand

Brassinosteroids make plant life easier under abiotic stresses mainly by modulating major components of antioxidant defense system
Various abiotic stress factors significantly contribute to major worldwide-losses in crop productivity by mainly impacting plant’s stress tolerance/adaptive capacity. The latter is largely governedExpand

Glutathione and glutathione reductase: a boon in disguise for plant abiotic stress defense operations.
Abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, clilling, heavy metal are the major limiting factors for crop productivity. These stresses induce the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) whichExpand
