Effects of CaCl2 Treatment Alleviates Chilling Injury of Loquat Fruit (Eribotrya japonica) by Modulating ROS Homeostasis
The results suggested that CaCl2 treatment alleviated CI in loquat fruit through enhancing antioxidant enzymes activities and AsA-GSH cycle system to quench ROS.
Hydrogen Sulfide Mitigates Chilling Injury of Postharvest Banana Fruits by Regulating γ-Aminobutyric Acid Shunt Pathway and Ascorbate–Glutathione Cycle
This study aimed to determine the effect of hydrogen sulfide on chilling injury (CI) of banana (Musa spp.) during cold storage (7°C). It was observed that hydrogen sulfide application (2 mmol L–1)
Exogenous proline mitigates toxic effects of cadmium via the decrease of cadmium accumulation and reestablishment of redox homeostasis in Brassica juncea
Background As a vital osmoticum, proline has an important role in enhancing the tolerance of plants to environmental stress. It is unclear whether the application of exogenous proline can improve the
Effect of CaCl2 Treatment on Enzymatic Browning of Fresh-Cut Luffa (Luffa cylindrica)
Enzymatic browning is a major issue that reduces the commercial value of Luffa cylindrica during storage, processing, and transportation. Our results showed that 1% CaCl2 treatment was optimal for


6-Benzylaminopurine alleviates chilling injury of postharvest cucumber fruit through modulating antioxidant system and energy status.
Results indicated that 6-BA alleviated CI in cucumber fruit through improving antioxidant enzyme activities and total antioxidant capacity and maintaining higher levels of ATP content and energy charge.
Effect of nitric oxide on antioxidative response and proline metabolism in banana during cold storage.
The enhanced chilling tolerance induced by NO treatment may result from the reduction of oxidative stress and proline accumulation, which resulted from the increased activities of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase and Δ¹-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase and decreased proline dehydrogenase activity.
Exogenous progesterone application protects chickpea seedlings against chilling-induced oxidative stress
Freezing tolerance, showed by thermal analysis method, proved that progesterone application improved chilling tolerance of chickpea seedlings by lowering freezing point from −4 to −5.5 °C, and it is possible that chilling tolerance induced by progester one is related to elevation of RLWC, chlorophyll content and antioxidative activity, and thereby decrease in oxidative stress indicators.
Effects of progesterone application on antioxidant enzyme activities and K+/Na+ ratio in bean seeds exposed to salt stress
It is demonstrated that progesterone has a positive role in moderate detrimental effects induced by salt, and the first study that exhibited changes in K/Na ratio.
Exogenous progesterone alleviates heat and high light stress-induced inactivation of photosystem II in wheat by enhancing antioxidant defense and D1 protein stability
This experiment was conducted to test the effects of foliar application of progesterone on the photochemical efficiency of photosystem II (PSII) and photosynthetic rate in wheat flag leaves subjected
