Nitric Oxide in Developing Plant Stress Resilience presents a strong focus on genetics and molecular mechanisms, examining crosstalk with other signaling molecules and the role this plays in the alleviation of oxidative damage. Abiotic stress negatively impacts plants productivity and alters the metabolism at the cellular or whole plant level, disturbing the mineral nutrients status, enzyme activities and osmotic homeostasis. Beginning with the biosynthesis of NO and its mode of action, chapters review various molecular interactions, including phytohormonal crosstalk, ROS metabolism, post-translational modification, and nutrients homeostasis. In addition, the book also highlights genome editing and proteomic approaches that can be used to manipulate NO responses. This is an essential resource for students and researchers interested in plant physiology, biochemistry and genetics.

Key Features

  • Highlights how Nitric Oxide acts as a signaling molecule and the ways in which this can help plants develop stress tolerance

Noushina Iqbal

Dr. Noushina Iqbal is currently working as SERB-National Post-Doctoral Fellow in Jamia Hamdard, India. During her PhD, she received the UGC-BSR Fellowship for meritorious student and worked on an UP-CST funded research project. She also got the prestigious Senior Research Fellowship (SRF) by CSIR. She has more than 30 peer reviewed international publications and has authored 1 book and edited 3 books. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of hormonal regulation of plant growth with special emphasis on photosynthesis under abiotic stress. The mechanistic approach applied by nutrients and signaling molecules under varied environmental stress is her priority. She deals with crosstalk between hormones for the modulation of nutrient-use efficiency, source-sink relation and abiotic stress tolerance.
