Under high salt conditions, plant growth is severely inhibited due to both osmotic and ionic stresses. In an effort to dissect genes and pathways that respond to changes in osmotic potential under salt stress, the expression patterns were compared of 460 non-redundant salt-responsive genes in barley during the initial phase under osmotic versus salt stress using cDNA microarrays with northern blot and real-time RT-PCR analyses. Out of 52 genes that were differentially expressed under osmotic… CONTINUE READING
