Salinity is a major abiotic stress that limits plant productivity. Plants respond to salinity by switching on a coordinated set of physiological and molecular responses that can result in acclimation. Medicago truncatula is an important model legume species, thus understanding salt stress responses and acclimation in this species is of both fundamental and applied interest. The aim of this work was to test whether acclimation could enhance NaCl tolerance in calli of M. truncatula. A new… CONTINUE READING
