The effect of drought and heat stress on reproductive processes in cereals.
Anastatica hierochuntica – Flora of Qatar
Abiotic stresses dramatically reduce crop yields leading to huge economic losses and a threat to food security Boyer, ; Bray et al. The process of curling and uncurling is completely reversible and can be repeated many times. A anastatia greater reduction in Arabidopsis growth was discerned as salt concentration increased than was observed in A.
Among the metabolites exhibiting differences between Arabidopsis and the two extremophytes under control conditions were: Large plant of Virgin’s Hand Anastatica hierochuntica, local names kaf mariam, jefaiea in roadside depression near Dukhan Highway.

Here, we investigate stress tolerance in the desert species, Anastatica hierochuntica True Rose of Jerichoa member of the poorly investigated lineage III Brassicaceae. Share this image — Hide sharing options. In recent years, a number of genomic resources have been generated for the Brassicaceae thereby providing an impressive platform for evolutionary and comparative biology studies.
Furthermore, the Negev desert is characterized by patchy soil nitrogen pools Zaady, Seeds of Virgin’s Hand Anastatica hierochuntica, local names kaf mariam, jefaiea in sand on roadside of Salwa Road, south-west from Doha.
Rose of Jericho
Due to differing root growth rates, A. The genus is a member of the family Brassicaceae formerly Cruciferaein the division Magnoliophyta of the class Magnoliopsida. The levels of the TCA cycle intermediates, citrate and malate, were substantially hierochintica in the extremophytes compared to Arabidopsis.
Supplementary Material The Supplementary Material for this article can be found online at: Scale bar is 5 mm. Each replicate plate contained ca. Changes in the alternative electron sinks and antioxidant defence in chloroplasts of the extreme halophyte Eutrema parvulum Thellungiella parvula under salinity.

Growth and development of Anastatica hierochuntica. Each day, plates or pots were shuffled to remove shelf position effects. Nitrogen use efficiency NUE is another trait which has been the focus of much research and breeding efforts McAllister et al.
Semi-spherical plant of Virgin’s Hand Anastatica hierochuntica, local names kaf mariam, jefaiea in roadside depression near Dukhan Hierocjuntica.
This page was last edited on 18 Decemberat Metabolite extraction was performed according to Lisec et al. Because the Negev desert possesses islands of high salinity and A. Each independent experiment comprised four replicates containing ca.
The various stresses to hierohcuntica an extremophyte exhibits tolerance reflect the combination of stresses characteristic of each specific habitat.
On the other hand, serine only displayed a slight salt-mediated decrease in E. Growth platform-dependent and -independent anastaticca and metabolic responses of Arabidopsis and its halophytic relative, Eutrema salsugineumto salt stress.
Evolution of metal hyperaccumulation required cis-regulatory changes and triplication of HMA4. C 3 photosynthesis in the desert plant Rhazya stricta is fully functional at high temperatures and light intensities.
Anastatica hierochuntica – Wikispecies
It is possible that the saline anastatic of E. Further support for a higher photorespiratory flux in the extremophytes can be derived from the higher glycerate levels in A. For instance, among amino acids, the level of alanine in Arabidopsis gradually declined in response to salt, while remaining constitutively high in the extremophytes and even rising slightly in A.
