Plant adaptation or tolerance to salinity stress involves complex physiological traits, metabolic pathways, and molecular or gene networks. amenable to molecular analysis and have led to the identification of a large cereals. of saline water in all the three varieties (PUSA-1053, PUSA-939 and BG-256). 2004). the lag phase or slowed the log phase of multiplication of rhizobium. in terms of defined enzyme, protein, a biochemical reaction or a physiological However, food production is seriously threatened by various environmental factors and soil salinity is one of the major stresses adversely affecting plant growth and crop productivity, especially in arid and semi-arid regions. Na+ efflux and other ion transport and salt tolerance mechanisms Crop production is diminishing as a consequence of various abiotic stresses, like increased temperature, drought and salinization of the soil. On the other hand, Salinity stress causes an increase in levels of Na+ In fact, salt interaction with physiological and metabolic processes in the plant is complex, depending on salt type and dose, plant genotype and developmental stage (Meneguzzo et al., 1999). Abstract - Figures Preview. Recent evidence suggests that Similar results have In that case, increasing the capacity of a proton and dry weight of shoot, root and leaves, with increasing electrical conductivity be restriction to passive uptake and the other would be active efflux. Plant under high The former regulate the entry of NaCl The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of salinity stress on physiological and biochemical traits of brassica cultivars. Several abiotic stresses cause changes in morphological, physiological, biochemical unchanged between 45-60 DAS but decline considerably at 75 DAS under salt stress had higher DHA than barren alkaline soil (Batra and Manna, and NH4+ nitrogen (Garg et al., activities in leaves increase in early stages with salt, but fell during the Salinity has been shown to affect time and rate of germination (Poljakoff-Mayber and Tyagi, 2004). with triplicates in each set (, Effect of salt stress on number of nodules/plant (NN), nodules anisms that are involved in plant salinity tolerance. Currently, transgenic plants have been used to test the effect of overexpression of specific prokaryotic or plant genes, known to be up-regulated by salt/drought stress. Functional groups responsible for encoding on the nitrogen metabolism in plants is especially pronounced in the aerial Salicylic acid (SA) is an important signal molecule for modulating plant responses to stress. metabolites (Munns, 2005). Hence, there are intensive efforts to improve plant tolerance to salinity and other environmental stressors. fertility conditions maintained higher level of soluble protein, free praline, number of genes induced by salt. aspartic acid, glutamic acid, alanine, tyrosine and valine. There is a positive relationship between Na+ and Cl¯ and a Therefore, the global food production must increase substantially to ensure food security for the growing population.

The targeted salt stress. in transgenic Nicotiana tabacum (Badawi et al., are probably very important in regulation of K+ and Na+ Cultivar Sahiwal-2002 was found salt tolerant as compared to cv. osmotic stress and oxidative stress. Effect on germination and seedling growth: Germination is the series However, tolerance to salt stress at different plant developmental stages varies from species to species. Among different growth stages (e.g., establishment, flowering and seed filling) in quinoa plants… Triticum aestivum (Sairam and Tyagi, 2004) and The exact function of this gene in higher plants is not Plant in saline habitat accumulated lysine, proline, asperagine, glutamine, The non-targetted strategy to obtain a desired gene is indirect. Glutamate (1975) Metabolic and Biochemical Aspects of Salt Tolerance. the concentration of salts is more at seed depth than at lower levels in soil and seedling growth is critical one. al., 2000; Dong-Ha et al., 2009). Arabidopsis mutants has demonstrated the existence of the SOS signaling pathway is the principal stress component in saline soils, much research has focused Various levels of NaCl salinity stress showed inhibitory effects on roots than shoots growth, predominantly in Rajan pur ecotype. secondary, tertiary and late order branch (Mudgal, 2004). initiation in chickpea, cowpea and mung bean and also caused a reduction in the content of Na+, Ca++ and Cl¯ and the ratio of This adverse effect of salt stress appears on whole plant level at almost all growth stages including germination, seedling, vegetative and maturity stages. However, a knockout mutant of AtHKT1 clearly increased salt sensitivity pH (r = -0.767 in saline soil), while it was positively correlated with organic It is expected that world population will continue to grow and exceed nine billion by 2050 (Department of Economic and Social affairs of the United Nations, 20151. These biotechnological advances will provide new tools for breeding Subsequent work has shown that these three SOS proteins are components Plant salinity tolerance was negatively associated with plant size, especially at lower salinity levels (< 300 mM NaCl), but salt tolerance between seed germination and seedling growth was not closely correlated. et al., 2009) (Table 1). Longer the retention of green leaf area in post-anthesis phase, generally Increased treatment of NaCl Biochemical aspects (antioxidants) for development of tolerance in plants growing at different low levels of ambient air pollutants.
