The present study was carried out to examine the effects of exogenous salicylic acid (SA) on growth, activities of antioxidant enzymes, and some physiological and biochemical characteristics of zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica Steud.) plants subjected to drought. Aqueous 0.1, 0.5, or 1.0 mM SA solution was sprayed on the leaves of zoysiagrass for 3 days.(More)
We have earlier reported that the endophyte infection can enhance photosynthetic capacity and antioxidant enzyme activities in rice exposed to salinity stress. Now, the changes in primary photochemistry of photosystem (PS) II induced by Na2CO3 stress in endophyte-infected (E+) and endophyte-uninfected (E-) rice seedlings were studied using chlorophyll a(More)
Functional brain imaging has tremendous applications. The existing methods for functional brain imaging include functional Magnetic Resonant Imaging (fMRI), scalp electroencephalography (EEG), implanted EEG, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), which have been widely and successfully applied to various brain imaging studies.(More)
The present study examined the effect of salicylic acid (SA) pre-treatment on soybean seedlings exposed to cadmium and/or UV-B stress. Dry mass, pigment content, net photosynthetic rate (PN), stomatal conductance (gs), and transpiration rate (E) were decreased by the Cd and/or UV-B stress. SA alleviated the adverse effects of Cd and/or UV-B on growth,(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings were grown hydroponically in Hoagland’s nutrient solution under controlled conditions to investigate the effects of NaCl pretreatment on their response to subsequent application of cadmium (Cd) alone and Cd + NaCl combination. The Cd stress caused growth retardation in all plants, significantly reduced pigment content,(More)
