  Hypericum perforatum is a medicinal plant which Hypericin, Hyperforin and phenolic compounds are its active secondary metabolites. Hairy root induction by Agrobacterium rhizogenes in this plant is difficult and has low efficiency. In the present study two inoculation methods, immersion in bacterial suspension ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, , Pages 1-15

  Salinity is one of the most important limitation factors in development of agricultural products. Cotton has a relative tolerance to salinity; however, salinity reduces its growth during germination and seedling stages. In this research, split-factorial design of time based on randomized complete block ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
Expression pattern analysis of transcription factors from Aeluropus littoralis in response to salt stress and recovery condition.

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2017, , Pages 19-30

  Salinity is one of the most important abiotic stresses that decrease crop production. Transcription factors (TFs) are prominent regulators in plant responses to abiotic stress. In the present study, the expression pattern of four salt-induced genes encoding transcription factors, namely, MYB, RF2, GTF, ...  Read More
