The present study was undertaken to investigate the mechanism underlying NaCl-alleviated Fe (iron) deficiency in Arabidopsis thaliana Col-0 (Columbia ecotype). Six-week-old Col-0 with rosettes of similar diameters was grown in full-strength nutrient solution lacking Fe (Fe-deficient) or full-strength nutrient solution (Fe-sufficient) with or without 10 mM NaCl for 7 days. Roots were then harvested for analysis of total Fe content, soluble Fe concentration, and abscisic acid (ABA) content as… CONTINUE READING
