Microarray-analysis for components of salinity-stress tolerance

Thiourea has been demonstrated to impart salinity-stress tolerance to seedlings of mustard, Brassica juncea. Srivastava et al.  perform a genome-wide transcriptome analysis of seeds treated with either salinity, or salinity plus thiourea. They identify 33 genes showing differential expression between the treatments, belonging to different signalling (ABA and other growth regulators, calcium) and effector (antioxidant) components that play crucial roles in salinity stress tolerance.
