Causes of salinity and plant manifestations to salt stress: a review.
The present review underlines the different sources of salinity stress and their physiological manifestations, toxicity responses alongwith tolerance in plants and management strategies in affected landscapes. Expand
Accumulation and distribution of toxic metals in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and Indian mustard (Brassica campestris L.) irrigated with distillery and tannery effluents.
Analysis of effluents and soil samples have shown high metal content than the permissible limit except Pb, and analyses of plant samples have indicated the maximum accumulation of Fe, followed by Mn and Zn in wheat root and leaves and mustard leaves. Expand
A role for brassinosteroids in the amelioration of aluminium stress through antioxidant system in mung bean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek)
It is concluded that the elevated level of proline in association with antioxidant system, at least in part, was responsible for the amelioration of Al stress in mung bean seedlings. Expand
Pectin lyase: A review
This review tries to fill the gap by providing all relevant information exclusively for pectin lyase by covering structural aspects, substrate specificity, molecular biology, biotechnological applications and future prospects of pECTin lyases. Expand
Purification and characterization of an alkaline pectin lyase from Aspergillus flavus
Abstract An alkaline pectin lyase secreted by Aspergillus flavus MTCC 7589 was purified to electrophoretic homogeneity using ammonium sulphate fractionation, anion exchange chromatography on DEAEExpand
Reduction of pollutants in pulp paper mill effluent treated by PCP-degrading bacterial strains
GC-MS analysis of ethyl acetate-extractable compounds from treated pulp paper mill effluent reinforces the bacterium capability for the degradation of lignin and pentachlorophenol, as many aromatic compounds such as 2-chlorophenol and tetrachlorohydroquinone detected which were not present in the untreated effluent. Expand
Biodegradation of organic compounds of molasses melanoidin (MM) from biomethanated distillery spent wash (BMDS) during the decolourisation by a potential bacterial consortium
The developed bacterial consortium could be a tool for the decolourisation and degradation of melanoidin containing BMDS. Expand
Syntrophic co-culture of Bacillus subtilis and Klebsiella pneumonia for degradation of kraft lignin discharged from rayon grade pulp industry.
Mixed culture of Bacillus subtilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae showed better decolorization efficiency and reduction of pollution parameters than axenic culture, indicating syntrophic growth of these two bacteria rather than any antagonistic effect. Expand
Impact of sodium nitroprusside on nitrate reductase, proline content, and antioxidant system in tomato under salinity stress
The present study was carried out to elucidate the protective role of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) against salt (NaCl) stress given as seed soaking in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum Mill. cv. K-21). ForExpand
Genetic divergence and interrelationship analysis in grain amaranth (Amaranthus hypochondriacus) germplasm
Correlation and path analysis revealed the significance of inflorescence; length, no. Expand
