Relative stress tolerance of WT and OsMT1e-P over expressing transgenic T1 generation tobacco plants at seedling level. (A) Leaf disc senescence assay for salinity stress tolerance in transgenic tobacco plants. Experiments were performed on three transgenic lines (L1, L2 and L7). Leaf discs of uniform size were floated on either NaCl solution (200 or 300 mM) for salinity stress or on water which served as control. Photographs were taken after 5 days of treatments. (B) K+/Na+ ratio of the leaves of the OsMT1e-P transgenic plants incubated in 200 mM and 300 mM NaCl. Data are means ± SE. Each data set represents an average of minimum three separate experiments. Bars with different letters are statistically significant and those with the same letters are not significantly different (p < 0.05). (TIFF 4089 kb)
