Protection effect of nitric oxide on photosynthesis in rice under heat stress

The effect of exogenous applied nitric oxide on photosynthesis under heat stress was investigated in rice seedlings. High temperature resulted in significant reductions of the net photosynthetic rate (P N) due to non-stomatal components. Application of nitric oxide donors, sodium nitroprusside (SNP) or S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO), dramatically alleviated… CONTINUE READING
