Proline is an important component of salt-stress responses of plants. In this study the role of proline as part of salt-stress signalling in the desert plant Pancratium maritimum L. was examined. The data showed that salt-stress brought about a reduction of the growth and protein content, particularly at 300 mM NaCl, that was significantly increased by exogenous proline. In the leaves, salt-stress up-regulated ubiquitin, a small protein targeting damaged proteins for degradation via the… CONTINUE READING
