In addition, the osmoprotectant proline Smirnoff and Cumbes, was higher in the extremophyte plants under control conditions while the osmoprotectants myo-inositol also a precursor of the osmoprotectant galactinol; Bohnert et al.

A—C Plants grown on soil were exposed to incremental increases of NaCl concentration, and were harvested 1 week after the final NaCl concentration was reached.

Identification of a new bp cis-acting element in the TsVP1 promoter involved in the salt stress response from Thellungiella halophila.

Unfortunately, our editorial approach may not hiegochuntica able to accommodate all contributions. Due to differing root growth rates, A.

Thellungiella generates new knowledge on essential and critical components of abiotic stress tolerance in plants. In recent years, a number of genomic resources have been generated for the Brassicaceae thereby providing an impressive platform for evolutionary and comparative biology studies.


Evidence for alternative electron sinks to photosynthetic carbon assimilation in the high mountain plant species Ranunculus glacialis. Thus, the Negev desert is a likely biogenetic treasure box of genes that are related to abiotic stress adaptations.

The small gray plant curls its branches and seedpods inward in the dry season, forming a ball that opens only when moistened. Retrieved from ” https: The levels of other carboxylic acids, such as ascorbate and dehydroascorbate, were constitutively higher in the extremophytes than in Arabidopsis.

Changes in the alternative electron sinks and antioxidant defence in chloroplasts of the extreme halophyte Eutrema parvulum Thellungiella parvula under salinity. However, this does not appear to be the case in E. Improving nitrogen use efficiency for cereal production.

Malate metabolism by NADP-malic enzyme in plant defense. One of these is Anastatica hierochuntica True Rose of Jerichoa winter annual, Saharo-Arabian desert plant species first described by Linnaei that colonizes the uppermost, driest zones of wadies or runnels Friedman and Stein, ; Friedman et al.

Leaf area was calculated with ImageJ 1. Thank you for your feedback. By accumulating specific compounds, such as antioxidants, while moderately accumulating other solutes such as sugars and amino acids, A. Anastqtica stress, the field environment and stress combination. The use of metabolomics anasttaica dissect plant responses to abiotic stresses. The influence of ultraviolet-B radiation hiierochuntica growth, hydroxycinnamic acids and flavonoids of Deschampsia antarctica during springtime ozone depletion in Antarctica.


Taking salt tolerance as a case study, we show that A.

Comparative 2D-DIGE analysis of salinity responsive microsomal proteins from leaves of salt-sensitive Arabidopsis thaliana and salt-tolerant Thellungiella salsuginea. For both analyses, data are representative of similar results from two independent experiments.
