Salinity is one of the main causes of yield loss in agricultural crop production worldwide. Numerous attempts have been made to produce salinity tolerant crops by manipulating the expression of genes involved in ion transport; yet, the reported results are often rather controversial. In this work, Arabidopsis AtNHX1 gene encoding vacuolar Na+/H+ exchanger was introduced into barley (Horduem vulgare L. cv. Golden Promise) plants grown under saline conditions. Transgenic plants were compared to… CONTINUE READING
