  • Salinity is one of the most severe environmental stress as it decreases crop production of more than 20% of irrigated land worldwide. Hence, it is important to develop salt-tolerant crops. Understanding the mechanisms that enable plant growth under saline conditions is therefore required. Acclimation of plants to salinized conditions depends upon activation of cascades of molecular networks involved in stress sensing, signal transduction, and the expression of specific stress-related genes and… CONTINUE READING
