Salinity is a major environmental stress that affects agricultural productivity worldwide. One approach to improving salt tolerance in crops is through high expression of the Arabidopsis gene AtNHX1, which encodes a vacuolar sodium/proton antiporter that sequesters excess sodium ion into the large intracellular vacuole. Sequestering cytosolic sodium into the vacuoles of plant cells leads to a low level of sodium in cytosol, which minimizes the sodium toxicity and injury to important enzymes in… Expand
