SummaryThis paper reports the effects of NaCl on the in vivo activity of glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) and glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT) and on the in vitro activity of GDH, both enzymes having been isolated from plants differing in salt tolerance. The plants investigated were Vicia faba (salt-sensitive), Atriplex nitens and Atriplex calotheca (more or less salt-tolerant), and Atriplex halimus (halophyte) grown at various NaCl concentrations. GDH and GOT isolated from various salt…

Differences in salt tolerance of three sugar beet genotypes
The effect of increasing NaCl concentrations (up to 150 mM) on growth and mineral composition of three genotypes of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L., MONOHILL, ADA and FIA) has been studied. Growth was
The tolerance of Atriplex halimus L. to environmental stresses
TLDR
The physiological and biochemical mechanisms that, together with the morphological and anatomical features of this species, contribute to its notable tolerance of important abiotic stresses: salinity, drought, extreme temperatures and soil contamination by trace elements are discussed.

TLDR
It seems likely that some families or species are favoured in occupying extreme soil types in consequence of their basic physiological features (i.e. Chenopodiaceae, Poaceae in saline habitats, Brassicaceae, Caryophyllaceae on heavy metal soils).
Development of in vitro propagation system for Atriplex halimus L.
TLDR
This study carried out to develp an efficient micropropagation system for large-scale rapid clonal multiplication and spreading its cultivation to contribute in alleviating desertification impact on the environment and Humans.

Salt responses of enzymes from species differing in salt tolerance.
TLDR
Interaction of pH optima and NaCl concentrations suggests that enzymes may differ in the way they respond to salt treatment, and indicates that plants grown in saline cultures showed no important changes in specific activity or salt sensitivity.
Malic dehydrogenase from tamarix roots: effects of sodium chloride in vivo and in vitro.
TLDR
It was postulated that NaCl apparently induces conformational changes in the enzyme, which had different responses to pH changes, mitochondrial MDH being more sensitive to salinity and changes of pH modified the effect of NaCl on enzyme activity.

TLDR
Differences in salt sensitivity of carboxylases were observed over a wide pH range and suggest substantial physical-chemical differences between phosphoenolpyruvate carboxyases functioning in photosynthesis and in CO(2) dark fixation.
[Influence of NaCl- and abscisic acid treatment on protein metabolism and some further enzymes of amino acid metabolism in seedlings of Pennisetum typhoides].
TLDR
The results of the amino acid analysis showed that in the presence of NaCl and ABA the amounts of alanine, aspartate and ammonia decreased, while the concentrations of glutamate, and especially that of proline increased greatly, and the possible significance of the results in explaining the proline accumulation under stress conditions and A BA-treatment is discussed.
[Effect of sodium chloride on respiration and the activity of malate dehydrogenase in some halophytes and glycophytes].
TLDR
Enzymes extracted from seedlings of halophytes and glycophytes grown at various levels of sodium chloride showed important changes in specific activity of malate dehydrogenase, indicating salt tolerance and substrate salinity.
The effect of neutral salt anions on the oxidative deamination activity of plant glutamate dehydrogenase
TLDR
From kinetic investigations it is seen that the treatment of the enzyme with anions decreases the affinity for the cosubstrate NAD+ and the substrate L-glutamate and also increases the dissociation constant for NAD+.
Salt tolerance in Suaeda maritima (L.) Dum A COMPARISON OF MITOCHONDRIA ISOLATED FROM GREEN TISSUES OF SUAEDA AND PISUM
TLDR
The addition of sodium chloride at concentrations greater than 200 mM considerably reduced the rates of oxygen uptake by both species in the presence and absence of phosphate acceptor (ADP).
