The effects of exogenous sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a nitric oxide (NO) donor, on growth of Chinese cabbage seedlings and antioxidant enzyme activity in leaves were studied under chilling stress. The results showed that the growth of Chinese cabbage seedlings was strongly inhibited when plants were exposed to chilling, whereas spraying SNP in shoots significantly alleviated the inhibition of growth from chilling stress. The plant height, root length, fresh and dry weight of chilling plants all… CONTINUE READING
