Abstract

Aluminum (Al) toxicity is a major restriction for crops production on acidic soils. The primary symptom of aluminum toxicity is visible in the roots of plants. Recently, several studies reported the alleviation of Al toxicity by the application of Boron (B), however, the information how B alleviates Al toxicity is not well understood. Thus, we investigated the ameliorative response of B on Al-induced growth inhibition, oxidative damages, and variations in the cell wall components in trifoliate orange roots. The results indicated that plants under Al stress experienced a substantial decrement in root length and overall plant growth. The supply of B improved the root elongation by eliminating oxidative stress, membrane peroxidation, membrane leakage, and cell death produced under Al toxicity. Moreover, accumulation of Al on the cell wall and alteration in the cell wall components might be one of the causes resulting in the quick inhibition of root elongation under B-starvation circumstances by providing susceptible negative charges on pectin matrix for binding of Al. The results provide a useful understanding of the insight into mechanisms of B-induced mitigation of Al toxicity especially in the trifoliate orange that might be helpful in the production of crops on acidic soils.
