Dariush Taghavi; Mohammad Majidi; Saeed Mollaei; Bahman Panahi

Volume 8, Issue 2 , December 2020, , Pages 1-9

  Shikonin is a naphthoquinone with some important medicinal properties and is found in gromwell plant. There are so many biotechnological approaches proposed for the productivity enhancement, and elicitation is recognized as one of the most effective strategies for increasing the production of secondary ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
Salt-related Genes Expression Pattern in Salt-Tolerant and Salt-Sensitive Cultivars of Cotton (Gossypium sp.) under NaCl Stress

Nafise Taghizadeh; Gholam Ali Ranjbar; Ghorban Ali Nematzadeh; Mohammad Reza Ramazani Moghaddam

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
The effect of salinity stress on Na+, K+ concentration, Na+/K+ ratio, electrolyte leakage and HKT expression profile in roots of Aeluropus littoralis

Masoud Fakhrfeshani; Farajollah Shahriari-Ahmadi; Ali Niazi; Nasrin Moshtaghi; Mohammad Zare-Mehrjerdi

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2015, , Pages 1-10

  Among abiotic stresses, salinity has been increasing over the time for many reasons like using chemical fertilizers, global warming and rising sea levels. Under salinity stress, the loss of water availability, toxicity of Na+ and ion imbalance directly reduces carbon fixation and biomass production in ...  Read More

Isolation, molecular cloning and expression analysis of Aeluropus littoralis Monodehydroascorbate reductase (MDHAR) gene under salt stress

Azadeh Mohseni; Ghorban Ali Nematzadeh; Ali Dehestani; Behzad Shahin; Elham Soleimani

Volume 3, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 72-80

  Plants are naturally exposed to frequent changes in environmental conditions such as salt stress affecting their growth and development, and consequently a considerable reduction in total productivity. Monodehydroascorbate reductase (MDHAR), a key enzyme in ascorbate-glutathione cycle, serves as an important ...  Read More
