The zeaxanthin epoxidase gene ( MsZEP ) was cloned and characterized from alfalfa and validated for its function of tolerance toward drought and salt stresses by heterologous expression in Nicotiana tabacum. Zeaxanthin epoxidase (ZEP) plays important roles in plant response to various environment stresses due to its functions in ABA biosynthetic and the(More)
Salt stress negatively affects alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) production and biological nitrogen fixation. We investigated whether rhizobium symbiosis has an effect on host plant tolerance to salt stress. We determined the survival rate, oxidative damage level, activities of antioxidant enzymes, and contents of osmotic solutes in the leaf and root of(More)
