Effect of salinity (0, 50, 100, 250, 500 and 750 mM NaCI) was observed on some important physiological parameters of nitrogen metabolism such as nitrate uptake, intracellular and extracellular ammonium status and activities of nitrogenase, nitrate reductase, nitrite reductase and glutamine synthetase among Frankia strains differing in their salt tolerance capacity. Nitrogenase activity closely followed the growth pattern with regular decline on NaCI supplementation. All the other enzymes showed… Expand
Salt stress–induced changes in antioxidative defense system and proteome profiles of salt-tolerant and sensitive Frankia strains
TLDR
Proteomic confirmation of salt tolerance in the strains with inbuilt efficiency of thriving in nitrogen-deficient locales is a definite advantage for these microbes and suggests further exploration for its potential use as biofertilizer in saline soils. Expand
Differential Nitrogen Nutrition Modifies Polyamines and the Amino-Acid Profile of Sweet Pepper Under Salinity Stress
TLDR
Changes in fruit quality triggered by salinity, under the conditions of this study, should be borne in mind for this crop with regard to the envisaged palliative effect of the supply of N-NH4+. Expand
Physiological aspects of cyanobacterial nitrogen fixation and its applications in modern sciences
TLDR
The biodiversity of symbiotic cyanobacteria concerning host species, habitat, and geographical location will contribute to an understanding of the specificity of cyanobacterial symbioses and will form a valuable basis for the future elaboration of sustainable and organic agricultural prospect for crop production. Expand
Growth response modulation by putrescine in Indian mustard Brassica juncea L. under multiple stress.
TLDR
The differential changes in parameters examined here resulted in improved growth (> 10%) suggests stress mitigation by the putrescine up to an extent, and could be a qualitative change. Expand
Effect of salinity and use of stress indices of morphological and physiological traits at the seedling stage in rice.
TLDR
There was a significant correlation between various morphological and physiological parameters in non-saline in addition to saline stress as well as non-stress and these three accessions could be used as a donor parent or for genotypic studies in future breeding programs. Expand
PGP potential, abiotic stress tolerance and antifungal activity of Azotobacter strains isolated from paddy soils.
TLDR
The studies revealed that the Azotobacter strains not only produced plant growth promoting substances but are also tolerant to abiotic stresses such as temperature, pH and insecticides. Expand
Mining Saline Soils to Manifest Plant Stress-Alleviating Halophilic Bacteria
TLDR
An arsenal of fifty halophilic bacteria carrying an absolute requirement of 3% NaCl for solubilizing the insoluble minerals under in vitro conditions was observed; however, increasing the amount of NaCl over and above resulted in loss ofsolubilization capacity. Expand
Protective role of antioxidative enzymes and antioxidants against iron-induced oxidative stress in the cyanobacterium Anabaena sphaerica isolated from iron rich paddy field of Chhattisgarh, India
Iron, as an essential element for plants and microorganisms, plays a significant role in photosynthesis, photopigment synthesis, nitrogen fixation, nucleic acid synthesis, etc. However, in iron richExpand
Role of Microalgae in Sustainable Energy and Environment
The fast-growing global population is pressing the requirement of energy leading to the extensive use of fossil fuels globally which tends to their exhaustion, alongside the environmental pollution.Expand
Role of Algae–Fungi Relationship in Sustainable Agriculture
TLDR
The key features of sustainable agriculture which include crop improvement, control of pests and diseases, and maintenance of soil fertility have largely been augmented by microbial application as well as natural bioindicators. Expand

Sodium transport and mechanism(s) of sodium tolerance in Frankia strains
TLDR
HsIi10 showed better co‐regulation of various factors and managed to tolerate salt stress up to considerable extent and can serve as a potential biofertilizer in the saline soil. Expand
Nitrate reductase in durum wheat seedlings as affected by nitrate nutrition and salinity.
TLDR
Under salinity free amino acids, in particular proline and asparagine, and glycine betaine could function as osmolytes to balance water potential within the cell, especially when nitrogen availability exceeded the need for growth. Expand

Abstract The effect of the different levels of salinity on some important physiological parameters among six species of Azolla has been investigated. Salinity reduced the growth (dry weight) andExpand
Effect of salt stress on nodulation and nitrogen fixation in legumes.
TLDR
Inhibitory effect of salinity on nodulation has been attributed to decrease in rhizobial colonisation and shrinkage and lack of root hair formation, and decrease in N2-fixation in nodules under salinity. Expand
Nitrogenase Inhibition in Nodules from Pea Plants Grown Under Salt Stress Occurs at the Physiological Level and can be Alleviated by B and Ca
TLDR
Fe levels were severely reduced in nodules developed in salt-stressed plants, indicating a linkage between Fe deprivation and salt-mediated failure of nitrogen fixation, which is prevented by B and Ca leading to increase of salt tolerance. Expand
Changes in growth and activity of enzymes involved in nitrate reduction and ammonium assimilation in tomato seedlings in response to NaCl stress.
TLDR
The changes in the nitrate reduction and ammonium assimilation into amino acids in tomato seedlings under salinity are studied in order to provide further insight into the salt effects on plant growth. Expand
Influence of NaCl Salinity on Behaviours of Nitrate Reductase and Nitrite Reductase in Rice Seedlings Differing in Salt Tolerance
TLDR
Results suggest possible different behaviours of nitrogen assimilatory enzymes in rice cultivars differing in salt tolerance and that salt tolerance ability is associated with high in vivo NR activity in seedlings and its further activation under salinization. Expand
Salt stress affects glutamine synthetase activity and mRNA accumulation on potato plants in an organ-dependent manner.
TLDR
The data obtained suggests that when potato plants are subjected to salt stress, increased ammonium assimilation occurs in roots, due to an increased GS accumulation, along with a decreased assimilation in leaves, while regarding GS gene-specific mRNA accumulation, an organ-dependent response was observed that contributes for the detected alteration in the ammonium assimilatory metabolism.

Effects of water stress on nitrogenase activity in Abuts incana
TLDR
Shortage of assimilates and disturbances in oxygen and nitrogen balances in the nodules are discussed as reasons for the reduced nitrogenase activity in response to water stress. Expand
Regulation of nitrate reductase levels in the cyanobacteria Anacystis nidulans, Anabaena sp. strain 7119, and Nostoc sp. strain 6719
TLDR
In the unicellular species Anacystis nidulans, nitrate reductase was repressed in the presence of ammonium but de novo enzyme synthesis took place in media containing either nitrate or not nitrogen source, indicating that nitrate was not required as an obligate inducer. Expand
