Masumeh Dezhabad; Hengameh Taheri; Babak Pakdaman Sardrood

Volume 8, Issue 1 , June 2020, , Pages 48-56

  Fusarium wilt caused by the fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici (FOL) is one of the major devastating diseases of tomato plants throughout the world. There is no information on the molecular response of tomato line, Early Urbana-Y to FOL. The present study was performed to study the line response ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
Expression analysis of K+ transporter genes associated with salinity tolerance in grape

Nayer Mohammadkhani; Reza Heidari; Nasser Abbaspour; Fatemeh Rahmani

Volume 4, Issue 1 , June 2016, , Pages 1-9

  Molecular information of K+ accumulation in grapes is strongly required. Under salinity condition potassium transporters are inhibited by Na+. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of salinity on the expression of K+ transporter genes in grape. Based on the previous screening study on ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
The responses of L-gulonolactone oxidase and HKT2;1 genes in Aeluropus littoralis’ shoots under high concentration of sodium chloride

Khalil Malekzadeh; Ali Niazi; Farajollah Shahriari-Ahmadi; Amin Mirshamsi-Kakhaki; Mohammad Zare-Mehrjerdi

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2015, , Pages 28-35

  Salinity is one of the most important abiotic stresses that limit crop growth and production. Salt stress influences plants in two ways: by affecting ion toxicity and increasing osmotic stress. Ion homeostasis, the excretion of Na+ and using antioxidant systems are the major strategies of salt tolerance ...  Read More

Catalase and Metallothionein genes expression analysis in wheat cultivars under drought stress condition

Fahime Moloudi; Saeid Navabpour; Hassan Soltanloo; Seyedeh Sanaz Ramazanpour; Hamidreza Sadeghipour

Volume 1, Issue 2 , October 2013, , Pages 54-68

  Drought stress is one of the serious problems that restricted agronomic plant production worldwide. In molecular level, the harmful effect of drought stress is mostly caused by producing of large amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Catalase and Metallothionein genes have a crucial role to mope the ...  Read More
