No information is available regarding effective microorganisms (EM) influence on the enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defence system involved in the ascorbate-glutathione cycle under saline conditions. Therefore, as a first approach, this article focuses on the contribution of EM to the scavenging capacity of the ascorbate-glutathione cycle in(More)
Two wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars, Sids 1 and Giza 168, were grown under non-saline or saline conditions (4.7 and 9.4 dS m−1) and were sprayed with 0.00, 0.05 and 0.10 mg l−1 24-epibrassinolide (EBL). Salt stress markedly decreased plant productivity and N, P, and K uptake, particularly in Giza 168. A follow-up treatment with 0.1 mg l−1 EBL(More)
Two wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars, Sids 1 and Giza 168, were grown under non-saline or saline conditions (4.7 and 9.4 dS m−1) with and without arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) inoculation. Salt stress considerably decreased root colonization, plant productivity and N, P, K+, Fe, Zn and Cu concentrations, while it increased Na+ level, particularly(More)
No information is available concerning effective microorganisms (EM) influence on the ionic and osmotic responses in plants grown in salty soils. Therefore, as a first approach, this study focuses on the contribution of EM to nutrient acquisition and compatible solutes accumulation in salt-stressed plants. It assesses some mechanisms underlying alleviation(More)
Conversion of protochlorophyllide (Pchlide) into chlorophyllide (Chlide), a key step in chlorophyll biosynthesis, is mediated by a light-dependent NADPH:protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR). POR exists in multiple isoforms that share high degree of homology. RNAi-mediated gene silencing approach was used to suppress the expression of POR genes in order(More)
No information is available concerning effective microorganisms’ (EM) influence on the ROS-scavenging system under saline conditions. Thus, as a first approach, the present study evaluates the effect of EM on antioxidant machinery, and also visualizes the interrelationship between EM and salinity stress response components. Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Nebraska(More)
No information is available concerning the influence of dual application of 24-epibrassinolide (EBL) and spermine (Spm) on the nitrogen metabolism in plants subjected to drought conditions. As a first report, this investigation assesses the role of EBL, Spm, and their dual application on polyamine and protein pools in water-stressed plants. It explores the(More)
