Enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant responses of Carrizo citrange, a salt-sensitive citrus rootstock, to different levels of salinity.
In several plant species, oxidative stress has been shown to be one of the causes of damage produced by salinity. In order to assess the implication of oxidative stress in the reported sensitivity ofExpand

Characterization and regulation of ammonium transport systems in Citrus plants
Abstract. We have investigated both the kinetics and regulation of 15NH4+ influx in roots of 3-month-old hydroponically grown Citrus (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck × Poncirus trifoliata Blanco)Expand

Pre-conditioning ornamental plants to drought by means of saline water irrigation as related to salinity tolerance
Abstract This study examines the feasibility of using saline irrigation water for commercial pot cultivation of three ornamentals: Calceolaria hybrida , Calendula officinalis and Petunia hybrida .Expand

Kinetics of nitrate uptake by Citrus seedlings and inhibitory effects of salinity
Abstract Nitrate absorption by roots of both Troyer citrange (hybrid of Citrus sinensis×Poncirus trifoliata ) and Cleopatra mandarin ( C. reshni ) seedlings was studied. The ion depletion in theExpand

An engineered plant that accumulates higher levels of heavy metals than Thlaspi caerulescens, with yields of 100 times more biomass in mine soils.
Nicotiana glauca transformed with TaPCS1 was tested for its application in phytoremediation. When plantlets were grown in mine soils containing Cu, Zn, and Pb (42, 2600, and 1500 mg kg(-1)) the plantExpand

Preventive and post‐infection control of Botrytis cinerea in tomato plants by hexanoic acid
The antifungal activity of hexanoic acid on the phytopathogen Botrytis cinerea was studied. This chemical inhibited both spore germination and mycelial growth in vitro in a concentration- andExpand

Ammonium transport and CitAMT1 expression are regulated by N in Citrus plants
Citrus seedlings (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck × Poncirus trifoliata Blanco) were used to describe the effects of different N treatments on the NH4+ influx mediated by high- and low-affinity transportExpand

Kinetics of NH4+ uptake by the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Rhizophagus irregularis
The kinetics and energetics of 15NH4+ uptake by the extraradical mycelium of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Rhizophagus irregularis were investigated. 15NH4+ uptake increased with increasingExpand

Influence of Chloride and Transpiration on Net15NO3−Uptake Rate byCitrus Roots
Abstract Three-month-old Carrizo citrange (hybrid of Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck×Poncirus trifoliata Blanco) seedlings were grown in controlled environment chambers in pots of fine sand. Plants wereExpand

Characterization of the low affinity transport system for NO(3)(-) uptake by Citrus roots.
Three-month old citrange Troyer (hybrid of Citrus sinensis x Poncirus trifoliata) seedlings were grown hydroponically and, after a period of NO(3)(-) starvation, plants were transferred to solutionsExpand
