Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is an important food legume crop, grown for human consumption globally including in China, Turkey, Egypt and Ethiopia. Although genetic gain has been made through conventional selection and breeding efforts, this could be substantially improved through the application of molecular methods. For this, a set of reliable molecular(More)
In this study, the Glycine max Jackson cultivar (the relatively drought-sensitive) and the Glycine soja BB52 accession (the drought-tolerant one) were used as the experimental materials. Effects of seed soaking with exogenous soybean isoflavones (daidzin or genistin) on seed germination, and seedlings photosynthesis, relative electrolytic leakage, content(More)
Effects of isoflavones on plant salt tolerance were investigated in soybean (Glycine max L. Merr. cultivar N23674) and tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.). Leaf area, fresh weight, net photosynthetic rate (Pn), and transpiration rate (Tr) of soybean N23674 plants treated with 80 mM NaCl were significantly reduced, while a gene (GmIFS1) encoding for(More)
