Comparison of salinity and drought stress effects on abscisic acid metabolites activity of cytokinin oxidase/dehydrogenase and chlorophyll levels in radish audtabacco

Radomira Vankova, Alena Gaudinova, Petre Dobrev, Jiri Malbeck, Daniel Haisel, Vaclav Motyka



Stronger negative impact of salinity (100 mM NaCl for 4 days) on radish plants in comparison with tobacco ones, correlated with more profound decrease of bioactive cytokinins and higher elevation of activity of the main cytokinin degrading enzyme cytokinin oxidase/dehydrogenase and abscisic acid in the former species.
