Cover for Plant response to acid rain stress.

Acid rain is known as the 'air killer' because of its devastating damage to the ecosystem. As the major factor in the terrestrial ecosystem, the toxic effect of acid rain on plants has attracted more attention of researchers. The loss in agriculture and forestry caused by acid rain aggravates the...

Cover for ROS signalling, and antioxidant defence network in halophytes.

Halophytes have evolved a range of adaptations to tolerate disturbances in reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasis caused by high salinity alone or in combination with other stresses. Singlet oxygen (1O2), superoxide anion (O2.-), hydroxyl radical (OH.) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) are the major...

Cover for Biotic stress signalling: Ca<sup xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">2+</sup>-mediated pathogen defence programmes.

Plant cells sensing pathogenic microorganisms evoke defence systems that can confer resistance to infection. This immune reaction can include triggering of basal defence responses as well as programmed cell death, or hypersensitive response (HR). In both cases (basal defence and HR), pathogen...

Cover for Sperm preparation for fertilization.

This chapter provides an overview of the current understanding of the preparative processes of sperm that are required to achieve mammalian fertilization. The consequences of semen processing, e.g. for semen storage or for flow cytometry sorting, for sperm integrity and its fertilization capacity...

Cover for Plasma membrane and plant freezing tolerance: possible involvement of plasma membrane microdomains in cold acclimation.

Cold acclimation-induced increase in freezing tolerance is associated with diverse changes in the plasma membrane, which ultimately results in an increase in the cryostability of the plasma membrane during a freeze-thaw excursion and an acceleration of the recovery process after thawing. Many...

Cover for Plant sulfate transporters.

Sulfur represents one of the essential macronutrients for plant nutrition. The main source of sulfur is as sulfate taken up from the soil by the roots. Cellular influx across the plasma membrane as well as efflux from the vacuoles is mediated by members of a single gene family. This plant sulfate...
