Abstract Nitric oxide (NO) is a bioactive molecule, which in plants was found to function as prooxidant as well as antioxidant. In the present study, we found that NO donor sodium nitroprusside (SNP) stimulates seed germination and root growth of lupin (Lupinus luteus L. cv. Ventus). Seed germination is promoted at concentrations between 0.1 and 800 μM SNP in a dose-dependent manner. The stimulation was most pronounced after 18 and 24 h and ceased after 48 h of imbibition. The promoting effect…

Protective roles of nitric oxide on seed germination and seedling growth of rice (Oryza sativa L.) under cadmium stress.
TLDR
It can be concluded that SNP exerted an advantageous effect on alleviating the inhibitory effect of Cd on rice seed germination and seedling growth, which might interact with NO.
Effects of nitric oxide on the germination of cucumber seeds and antioxidant enzymes under salinity stress
TLDR
Exogenous NO treatment on cucumber seeds may be a good option to improve seed germination under saline conditions, as the NO-induced salt stress resistance was associated with activated enzymes, and enhanced protein content, thus decreasing MDA content.
Nitric oxide alleviates salt stress in seed germination and early seedling growth of pakchoi (Brassica chinensis L.) by enhancing physiological and biochemical parameters.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that SNP application on pakchoi seeds may be a good option to improve seed germination and seedling growth under NaCl stress by modulating the physiological responses resulting in better seed Germination and Seedling growth.
Involvement of nitric oxide in enhanced germination and seedling growth of magnetoprimed maize seeds
TLDR
No inhibitors and ROS inhibitor inhibited magnetic field induced promotion of seedling parameters and α- amylase activity of maize seeds under laboratory conditions, whereas NO donor (SNP) promoted all these parameters.

Nitric Oxide Alleviates Copper Toxicity in Germinating Seed and Seedling Growth of Lactuca sativa L.
TLDR
The results of this study suggested that nitric oxide treatments have been beneficial upon the seeds that treated with copper, but not upon the Seedling fresh weight and allometry coefficient, and the lower concentration of copper had a positive effect on the seed vigor index.

Nitric oxide induces stomatal closure and enhances the adaptive plant responses against drought stress.
TLDR
Results suggest that the exogenous application of NO donors might confer an increased tolerance to severe drought stress conditions in plants.
Nitric oxide stimulates seed germination and de-etiolation, and inhibits hypocotyl elongation, three light-inducible responses in plants
TLDR
It is shown that NO promotes seed germination and de-etiolation, and inhibits hypocotyl and internode elongation, processes mediated by light, which implicate NO as a stimulator molecule in plant photomorphogenesis, either dependent on or independent of plant photoreceptors.

Nitric Oxide Acts as an Antioxidant and Delays Programmed Cell Death in Barley Aleurone Layers1
TLDR
The hypothesis that NO is a protective antioxidant in aleurone cells is supported by data that shows that treatment with GA in the presence of NO donors delays the loss of CAT and SOD, and α-Amylase secretion is stimulated slightly by NO donors.

TLDR
It is suggested that, acting as an antioxidant, NO can strongly counteract many ROS-mediated cytotoxic processes in plants and the evidence of NO functionality in the plant kingdom is strengthened by this work.
