Responses of wheat plants to interactions of 24-epibrassinolide and Glomus mosseae in saline condition

Responses of wheat plants to interactions of 24-epibrassinolide and Glomus mosseae in saline... This study was designed to investigate the possible effects of 24-Epibrassinolide (BR), arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus, Glomus mosseae, singularly and collectively under salt stress in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) plants. After foliar spraying of mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal plants by 5 µM epibrassinolide (24-Epi), they were treated with 0 and 150 mM NaCl for 2 weeks and then harvested. The results showed interactions of G. mosseae and 24-Epi could alleviate the adverse effects of salinity by improving relative water content (RWC) of leaves (62%), relative growth rate (40.74%), shoot fresh weights (39.83%) and shoot phosphorous content (63.93%), stimulating leaf enzymatic antioxidant activities including catalase (2.24 fold) and ascorbate peroxidase (2.18 fold) as well as malondialdehyde (36.17%) and H2O2 concentrations (49.74%) as compared to those of NaCl treatments. Moreover, mycorrhizal dependency of root dry weight (2%) and phosphorus concentration (0.4%) increased with AM infection and 24-Epi application under saline condition.

Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the possible effects of 24-Epibrassinolide (BR), arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus, Glomus mosseae, singularly and collectively under salt stress in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) plants. After foliar spraying of mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal plants by 5 µM epibrassinolide (24-Epi), they were treated with 0 and 150 mM NaCl for 2 weeks and then harvested. The results showed interactions of G. mosseae and 24-Epi could alleviate the adverse effects of salinity by improving relative water content (RWC) of leaves (62%), relative growth rate (40.74%), shoot fresh weights (39.83%) and shoot phosphorous content (63.93%), stimulating leaf enzymatic antioxidant activities including catalase (2.24 fold) and ascorbate peroxidase (2.18 fold) as well as malondialdehyde (36.17%) and H2O2 concentrations (49.74%) as compared to those of NaCl treatments. Moreover, mycorrhizal dependency of root dry weight (2%) and phosphorus concentration (0.4%) increased with AM infection and 24-Epi application under saline condition. Leaf RWC, also, negatively correlated with membrane electrolyte leakage. Furthermore, the greatest mitigating effects were observed in mycorrhizal plants subjected to NaCl and 24-Epi. This study indicated that 24-Epi application and AM fungi may synergistically mitigate harmful impacts of salinity in wheat plants.
