Relative expression levels of a lipoxygenase-annotated transcript in four chickpea varieties at different time points after salt stress onset, measured by qRT-PCR. Transcript levels of chickpea 26 bp tag STCa-7252, annotated to a lipoxygenase gene, remained constant 2 h hours after salt stress onset in INRAT-93 according to deepSuperSAGE. When compared to the transcript levels of other chickpea varieties, strong differences are observed. The two less salt-tolerant varieties Amdoun1 and ICC6098 show a much higher expression level over time.
