Salinity causes changes in cytosolic Ca(2+), [Ca(2+)]cyt, Na(+), [Na(+)]cyt and pH, pH cyt , which induce specific reactions and signals. Reactions causing a rebalancing of the physiological homeostasis of the cytosol could result in plant resistance and growth. Two wheat cultivars, Triticum aestivum, Seds1 and Vinjett, were grown in nutrient solution for 7 days under moderate salinity (0 and 50 mM NaCl) with and without extra addition of 5 mM CaSO4 to investigate the seedling-ion homeostasis… CONTINUE READING
