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
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) increase growth and secondary metabolism in cucumber subjected to low temperature stress
Results indicated that the enhanced secondary metabolism and integrated transcriptional regulation might play a crucial role in AMF-mediated alleviation of chilling stress in cucumber. Expand
Alleviation of chilling-induced oxidative damage by salicylic acid pretreatment and related gene expression in eggplant seedlings
SA pre-treatment could effectively protect eggplant seedlings from oxidative damage of chilling stress through enhancing antioxidant enzymes activities and related gene expression. Expand
Brassinosteroids in Plant Tolerance to Abiotic Stress
A review of the involvement of BRs in plant responses to abiotic stresses and available literature to show potential mechanisms of BR-induced abiotic stress tolerance indicates the complexity of BR action in mediating stress responses in plants. Expand
Combined Inoculation with Multiple Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Improves Growth, Nutrient Uptake and Photosynthesis in Cucumber Seedlings
It is revealed that inoculation with VT had relatively better effect on growth of cucumber seedling followed by BF and Fm, indicating that AMF composition consisting of distant AMF species may have a better effect than a single or closely related AMF spp. Expand
Overexpression of mitochondrial uncoupling protein conferred resistance to heat stress and Botrytis cinerea infection in tomato.
The results suggest that LeUCP may play a pivotal role in controlling a broad range of abiotic and biotic stresses in plants by increasing redox level and antioxidant capacity, elevating electron transport rate, lowering H2O2 and lipid peroxidation accumulation. Expand
Endogenous melatonin deficiency aggravates high temperature-induced oxidative stress in Solanum lycopersicum L.
Abstract Melatonin is a natural biostimulating molecule that occurs in a number of plant species. Despite a short history of phytomelatonin research, the critical roles of melatonin in plant stressExpand
Melatonin alleviates iron stress by improving iron homeostasis, antioxidant defense and secondary metabolism in cucumber
Abstract Iron is an essential element for plants and animals; however, deficit or excess iron can result in stress on plants. In this study, we unveiled the mechanisms of shoot-based tolerance toExpand
COMT1 Silencing Aggravates Heat Stress-Induced Reduction in Photosynthesis by Decreasing Chlorophyll Content, Photosystem II Activity, and Electron Transport Efficiency in Tomato
Genetic evidence is provided on the vital role of melatonin in photosynthesis and thus may have useful implication in horticultural crop management in the face of climate change. Expand
Dopamine alleviates bisphenol A-induced phytotoxicity by enhancing antioxidant and detoxification potential in cucumber.
Exogenous dopamine application significantly improved the photosynthetic pigment content, root cell viability, growth and biomass accumulation, and decreased the ROS and MDA levels by increasing the activity of antioxidant enzymes under BPA stress. Expand
