Studies show the positive effect of the nitric oxide donor in the seed germination process. However, there are no precise reports about which compound present in sodium nitroprusside would cause these effects in seeds under salt stress. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of SNP on germination of Senna macranthera seeds under salt stress. The osmotic potentials of -0.3, -0.4, and -0.5 MPa of NaCl were used, as well as the concentration of 100 μM of sodium nitroprusside, inactive… Expand

Effects of nitric oxide on the germination of cucumber seeds and antioxidant enzymes under salinity stress
Exogenous NO treatment on cucumber seeds may be a good option to improve seed germination under saline conditions, as the NO-induced salt stress resistance was associated with activated enzymes, and enhanced protein content, thus decreasing MDA content. Expand
Effects of exogenous nitric oxide on germination and physiological properties of basil under salinity stress.
Application of NO under salinity stress improved germination traits, increased dry weight, chlorophyll content, antioxidant activity and proline content, while MDA content and electrolyte leakage were decreased, suggesting that NO might induce salt tolerance in basil by preventing oxidative damage.

Nitric oxide stimulates seed germination and counteracts the inhibitory effect of heavy metals and salinity on root growth of Lupinus luteus
Abstract Nitric oxide (NO) is a bioactive molecule, which in plants was found to function as prooxidant as well as antioxidant. In the present study, we found that NO donor sodium nitroprusside (SNP)Expand
Nitric oxide accelerates seed germination in warm-season grasses
The data indicate that seed germination of warm-season grasses is significantly influenced by NO signaling pathways and document that NO could be an endogenous trigger for release from dormancy in these species. Expand
Proteomic analysis of the enhancement of seed vigour in osmoprimed alfalfa seeds germinated under salinity stress
Proteomics data provide a biochemical understanding of the increase in seed vigour generally observed with primed seeds, and numerous changes observed in the proteome of the untreated control seeds imbibed in the presence of salt can be substantially reversed in osmoprimed seeds undergoing this stress.

Exogenous Application of Salicylic Acid and Nitric Oxide on the Ionic Contents and Enzymatic Activities in NaCl-Stressed Soybean Plants
The possible protective role of exogenous SA and NO donor (sodium nitroprusside) against salt stress was examined NaCl-induced oxidative stress in Glycine max L. The results indicated thatExpand
Nitric Oxide Mitigates Salt Stress by Regulating Levels of Osmolytes and Antioxidant Enzymes in Chickpea
NO has capability to mitigate the adverse effects of high salinity on chickpea plants by improving LRWC, photosynthetic pigment biosyntheses, osmolyte accumulation and antioxidative defense system. Expand
Exogenous nitric oxide improves seed germination in wheat against mitochondrial oxidative damage induced by high salinity
Abstract Effects of exogenous nitric oxide (NO) on starch degradation, oxidation in mitochondria and K + /Na + accumulation during seed germination of wheat were investigated under a high salinityExpand
Effect of sodium cyanide on germination of two leguminous seeds
The effect of aqueous sodium cyanide has been studied on germination ofC. ternatea andR. minima seeds. The suitable concentration of this chemical accelerates imbibition, germination, and promotesExpand
Interactive role of nitric oxide and calcium chloride in enhancing tolerance to salt stress.
Investigation of the role of nitric oxide donor sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and/or calcium chloride (CaCl(2)) in the tolerance of excised mustard leaves to salt stress advocate that SNP in association with CaCl( 2) plays a role in enhancing theolerance of plants to salt Stress by improving antioxidative defence system, osmolyte accumulation and ionic homeostasis.
