Salt stress is one of the environmental threats that have devastating impacts on plant distribution, growth and production. Different plants are believed to have salt tolerance mechanisms that occur at the cellular level. One facet of the cellular mechanisms of adaptation to salinity stress is to accumulate either inorganic and/or organic solutes. Glycinebetaine (GB), as well as other organic solutes, has been referred to as compatible solutes, for the reason that they are innocent with… CONTINUE READING
