The effects of exogenous 24-epibrassinolide (EBR) on the growth, oxidative damage, antioxidant system and ion contents in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) seedlings under salt stress were investigated. Eggplant seedlings were exposed to 90 mM NaCl with 0, 0.025, 0.05, 0.10 and 0.20 mg dm−3 EBR for 10 d. EBR, especially at concentration 0.05 mg dm−3, alleviated growth suppression caused by NaCl stress, decreased electrolyte leakage, superoxide production and content of malondialdehyde and H2O2 in… CONTINUE READING
