The mechanism(s) underlying differential salt sensitivity/tolerance were investigated in the terms of altered morphological and physiological responses against salinity such as growth, electrolyte leakage, Na+ uptake, efflux, accumulation and intracellular concentrations of macronutrients among the Frankia strains newly isolated from Hippöphae salicifolia D. Don. Growth was minimally reduced at 500 and 250 mM NaCl respectively in HsIi10 and rest of the strains (HsIi2, HsIi8, HsIi9) which proved… Expand
Regulation of nitrogen metabolism in salt tolerant and salt sensitive Frankia strains.
TLDR
Among all the strains, HsIil0 proved to be salt tolerant on account of above features while the salt sensitive strainHsIi8 lacked the ability to regulate various steps of nitrogen metabolism during salinity, and thus Frankia strain Hsiil0 can potentially serve as a potential biofertilizer in the saline soil.

Molecular mechanisms of salt and osmotic stress tolerance in Frankia strains isolated from Casuarina trees
TLDR
Vast differences in salt stress response are revealed with regards to cellular functions such as transcriptional regulation, cell envelope remodeling, osmolyte biosynthesis, and signal transduction. Expand
Modulation in fatty acid composition influences salinity stress tolerance in Frankia strains
TLDR
The differential capability of fatty acid desaturation could be a major factor in variation of salt sensitivity/tolerance patterns among these strains and management of the lipid profile in response to salinity was found to be a strain-specific character. Expand
Regulation of calcium ion and its effect on growth and developmental behavior in wild type and ntcA mutant of Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 under varied levels of CaCl2
TLDR
Poor regulation of calcium ion homeostasis in ntcA suggests that the calcium level and nTCA gene expression are inter-related, and the interactive effect of calcium influx/efflux rate, remaining Ca2+ and intracellular levels of Na+ and K+. Expand
Modulation of fatty acids and hydrocarbons in Anabaena 7120 and its ntcA mutant under calcium
TLDR
Basic acclimation response is outlined along with possibilities of production of fatty acid and hydrocarbon derived biofuel and other bioactive compounds in Anabaena sp. 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
Tolerance to environmental stress by the nitrogen-fixing actinobacterium Frankia and its role in actinorhizal plants adaptation
TLDR
The response of different Frankia strains to environmental stresses and their role that they play in the adaptation of actinorhizal plants to stressful conditions are reviewed. Expand
The impact of salinity on the symbiosis between Casuarina glauca Sieb. ex Spreng. and N2-fixing Frankia bacteria based on the analysis of Nitrogen and Carbon metabolism
TLDR
The ability of C. glauca to thrive under highly saline environments is not dependent on the symbiosis with Frankia, and salt stress induced an enrichment in δ13C and δ15N, reflecting a negative impact of salt in the relative water content and N2 fixation, respectively. Expand
Role of manganese in protection against oxidative stress under iron starvation in cyanobacterium Anabaena 7120
TLDR
Manganese supported the growth of cyanobacterium Anabaena 7120 under iron deprived conditions where maximum uptake rate of manganese was observed with lower Km and higher Vmax values and the levels of total peroxide, thiol, proline and NADH content showed increasing trends in iron starvation.

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

Regulation of Sodium Influx in the NaCl-Resistant (NaClr) Mutant Strain of the Cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis
TLDR
It appears that the synthesis of SSPs, accumulation of compatible solutes, and exhibition of low Na+ influx in the NaClr strain made this organism NaCl tolerant. Expand
42K analysis of sodium-induced potassium efflux in barley: mechanism and relevance to salt tolerance.
TLDR
It is concluded that the stimulated efflux of potassium (K(+) efflux is of limited long-term significance, unlike the suppression of K(+) influx by Na(+), which is a greater threat to K(+ homeostasis under salt stress. Expand

X-ray microanalysis of unetched frozen-hydrated cells adapted to salt indicated that Na(+) and Cl(-) were compartmentalized in the vacuole, at concentrations of 780 and 624 millimolar, respectively, while cytoplasmic concentrations of the ions were maintained at 96 millimolars. Expand

The results suggested that an optimum protection from salt stress could be obtained by using a combination of combined nitrogen sources, and nitrogen is only available through the biological nitrogen fixation which is the most sensitive to salt stress. Expand

Results suggest that nitrate and urea curtailed the entry of sodium, reduced salt toxicity maximally by maintaining the minimum level of sodium and also conserved energy due to slow influx and efflux of Na(+) within the fronds during salt shock and the process of adaptation. Expand
