Aluminum (Al) toxicity is one of the major factors that limit plant growth. Low concentration of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been proven to function in physiological responses to various stresses. The objective of this study is to investigate the possible role of H2S in Al toxicity in barley (Hordeum vulgare L) seedlings. Barley seedlings pre-treated with sodium hydrosulfide (NaHS), a H2S donor, and subsequently exposed to Al treatment were studied for their effects on root elongation, Al… CONTINUE READING
