Effect of seed soaking with thiols on the antioxidant enzymes and photosystem activities in wheat subjected to water stress
Photosystem 1 and 2 and antioxidant enzyme activities were determined in wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. Sonalika) leaves. Seedlings from both control seeds and seeds soaked in solutions like…

The work suggests that in the background of photosynthetic decline, the polysaccharides bound to cell wall that remains intact even during late phase of senescence may be the last target of senescing leaves for a possible source of sugar for remobilization and completion of the energy-dependent Senescence program.
Partial protection of photosynthetic apparatus from UV-B-induced damage by UV-A radiation
Genome-wide analysis of thiourea-modulated salinity stress-responsive transcripts in seeds of Brassica juncea: identification of signalling and effector components of stress tolerance.
The TU treatment co-ordinately regulates different signalling and effector mechanisms at an early stage to alleviate stress even under a high degree of salinity, indicating the potential of TU to be used as an effective bioregulator to impart salinity tolerance under field conditions.
A novel pathway for the synthesis of solanidine in the isolated chloroplast from greening potatoes.
Isolated chloroplasts from green peelings were able to fix CO2 and the evidence obtained showed a direct reduction of CO2 to formate, which was the primary product of fixation.

Thiourea has the potential to be used as an effective bioregulator to impart salinity tolerance under field conditions, and might prove to be of high economic importance by opening new avenues for both basic and applied research.
