Salt stress causes a shift in the localization pattern of germin gene expression

M. Caliskan, Salt stress causes a shift in the localization pattern of germin gene expression, vol. 8, pp. 1250-1256, 2009.

The response of plants to biotic and abiotic stress factors involves biochemical, physiological, morphological, and developmental changes. Salt stress has been the subject of extensive studies due to the low salt tolerance of many crop plants. Germin and germin-like gene products are known to be involved in various aspects of plant development, such as defense, embryonic development and response to biotic as well as abiotic stress, including salt. The responses of germin and germin-like genes to salt stress vary in different plants.
