Abstract: The effects of NO donors on germination under saline stress have been much investigated for many species, however, there are reports that the effect caused by donors are effects of cyanide present. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on germination, antioxidative system and lipid peroxidation of Senna macranthera seeds under saline stress. The osmotic potentials of -0.4 and -0.5 MPa of NaCl were used, as well as the concentration of 100 μM… Expand

Effects of nitric oxide on the germination of cucumber seeds and antioxidant enzymes under salinity stress
Exogenous NO treatment on cucumber seeds may be a good option to improve seed germination under saline conditions, as the NO-induced salt stress resistance was associated with activated enzymes, and enhanced protein content, thus decreasing MDA content. Expand
