Benefits of brassinosteroid crosstalk.
Recent findings indicate that BR signaling components mainly interact with the signaling elements of other hormones at the transcriptional level, which could provide a unique tool for the genetic improvement of crop productivity in a sustainable manner. Expand
Role of brassinosteroids in alleviation of phenanthrene–cadmium co-contamination-induced photosynthetic inhibition and oxidative stress in tomato
A positive role for EBR is advocated in reducing pollutant residues for food safety and also strengthening phytoremediation as a result of a potential interaction of EBR and PHE for Cd stress alleviation. Expand
Chromium Stress Mitigation by Polyamine-Brassinosteroid Application Involves Phytohormonal and Physiological Strategies in Raphanus sativus L.
It is demonstrated that co-applications of EBL and Spd are more effective than their independent treatments in lowering the Cr-induced oxidative stress in radish, leading to improved growth of radish seedlings under Cr-stress. Expand
Interaction of Brassinosteroids and Polyamines Enhances Copper Stress Tolerance in Raphanus Sativus
The study indicates that co-application of EBR and Spd is an effective approach for Cu detoxification and the maintenance of Cu homeostasis in plants and the use of these compounds in agricultural production systems should be explored. Expand
Epibrassinolide ameliorates Cr (VI) stress via influencing the levels of indole-3-acetic acid, abscisic acid, polyamines and antioxidant system of radish seedlings.
The present investigation determined the effects of epibrassinolide (EBL) on the levels of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), abscisic acid (ABA), and polyamine (PA) and antioxidant potential of 7-d oldExpand
Epibrassinolide induces changes in indole-3-acetic acid, abscisic acid and polyamine concentrations and enhances antioxidant potential of radish seedlings under copper stress.
Major improvement in radical scavenging activities, as attested by the antioxidant activity assay using DPPH, and elevated deoxyribose and reducing powers, along with increased contents of ascorbic acid, total phenols and proline, also suggest a major influence of EBL application in mitigating copper-induced oxidative stress in radish seedlings.

Enhancing effects of 24-epibrassinolide and Putrescine on the antioxidant capacity and free radical scavenging activity of Raphanus sativus seedlings under Cu ion stress
The present investigation recorded significant restoration of seedling growth (root length, shoot length and fresh weight) upon application of 24-epibrassinolide (EBL) and putrescine (Put) toExpand
Changes induced by Cu2+ and Cr6+ metal stress in polyamines, auxins, abscisic acid titers and antioxidative enzymes activities of radish seedlings
The present study determined the effects of copper and chromium metals on the endogenous titers of polyamines, auxins, abscisic acid and antioxidative enzyme activities in Raphanus sativus L. cv.Expand
Influence of Exogenously Applied Epibrassinolide and Putrescine on Protein Content, Antioxidant Enzymes and Lipid Peroxidation in Lycopersicon esculentum under Salinity Stress
Evidence is provided that EBR and Put co-applications are effective in amelioration of NaCl stress in L. esculentum and co-application potential of EBR may acts an eco-friendly approach towards Na Cl stress mitigation in economically important crops. Expand
Epibrassinolide regulated synthesis of polyamines and auxins in Raphanus sativus L. seedlings under Cu metal stress
The effects of various conc of (10-11, 10-9 and 10-7 M) 24-epibrassinolide (24-epiBL) on polyamines and auxins contents was analyzed in 7days old seedlings of Raphanus sativus L. cv. Pusa chetkiExpand
