Relationship Between Changes in Contents of Nitric Oxide and Amino Acids Particularly Proline in Plants Under Abiotic Stress
Studies on the physiological response of plants to abiotic stress have identified an array of changes including nitric oxide (NO) generation, accumulation of free proline, reactive oxygen species, antioxidants and oxidative damages. Little is known about the relationships between two of the concurrent changes, NO and proline metabolism. Here, the insights obtained so far and the important research gaps about this were explored.
