Does Application of Brassinosteroids mitigate the Temperature Stress in Plants

  title={Does Application of Brassinosteroids mitigate the Temperature Stress in Plants},
  author={B. Vardhini},
The temperature across the globe is constantly changing for the worse of the biotic beings viz., the flora and fauna. Rapid temperature changes are the result of continuous interference of human beings as a bane post the rapid industrialization and urbanization. The ever increasing and decreasing ranges of temperature in the environment are leading to the malfunctioning of various physiological and biochemical processes in plants thereby resulting in severe temperature stresses in terms of high… Expand

Modifications of morphological and anatomical characteristics of plants by application of brassinosteroids under various abiotic stress conditions - A review
The present review is a study on the role of BRs in the improvement of morphological and anatomical changes plants grown under various abiotic stress conditions. Expand
Brassinosteroids participate in the control of basal and acquired freezing tolerance of plants
It is revealed that the brassinosteroids, a class of steroid hormones that is known for its role in growth control, also confers freezing tolerance in plants and regulatory circuits that contribute to this activity are described. Expand
Exogenous application of brassinolide can alter morphological and physiological traits of Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvelev under room and high temperatures
It is indicated that brassinolide could improve the growth and development of L. chinensis by enhancing the biosynthesis of photosynthetic pigments, osmolytes and antioxidant enzymes system in plants under both room and high temperature. Expand
Physiological and molecular mechanisms of brassinosteroid-induced tolerance to high and low temperature in plants
Brassinosteroids (BRs) are plant hormones that were isolated for the first time in the 1970s. This group currently includes more than 70 compounds that differ in their structure and physiologicalExpand
Brassinosteroid improves lipid productivity and stress tolerance of Chlorella cells induced by high temperature
Overall composition changes in algal cell, including lipid, protein, and carbohydrate, in response to the assimilation of high temperature and plant hormones are demonstrated, indicating that EBL significantly increases the lipid content of algae subjected to the stress induced by high temperature.

24-Epibrassinolide Ameliorates Endogenous Hormone Levels to Enhance Low-Temperature Stress Tolerance in Cucumber Seedlings
It can be concluded that exogenous EBR regulates endogenous hormones by activating at the transcript level EBR biosynthetic genes, which increases antioxidant enzyme capacity levels and reduces the overproduction of ROS and MDA, protecting chlorophyll and photosynthetic machinery, thus improving cucumber seedling growth.

Protective Roles of Brassinolide in Rice Seedlings under Heat Stress
Two indica rice(Oryza sativa L.) materials,Xieqingzao B(heat-sensitive) and 082(heat-tolerant),were used to study the role of brassinolide(BR) in protection of rice seedlings from heat stress.YoungExpand
Brassinolide alleviates the drought-induced adverse effects in barley by modulation of enzymatic antioxidants and ultrastructure
It can be concluded that exogenous application of BL could alleviate drought stress to barley by ameliorating photosynthetic parameters, improving antioxidants enzyme activities, reducing ultrastructural changes in leaf mesophyll and finally maintaining the plant growth. Expand
Exogenously Applied Plant Growth Regulators Affect Heat‐Stressed Rice Pollens
It was depicted that high temperature severely reduced the pollen fertility, anther dehiscence, pollen retention, germination and metabolites synthesis in pollens of both rice cultivars, and exogenous application of various plant growth regulators assuaged the adverse effects of high temperature.
