Stress Tolerance in Plants: A Proteomics Approach

  • Gyana Ranjan Rout
  • Sunil Kumar Senapati


Both abiotic and biotic stresses adversely affect the plant growth and productivity including crop plants. The development of stress-tolerant plants will be greatly advantageous for modern agriculture in areas that are prone to such stresses. In recent times, several advances have been made towards identifying potential stress-related genes which are capable of increasing the tolerance of plants to both abiotic and biotic stresses. This interaction between biotic and abiotic stresses is controlled by hormone signaling pathways that may induce or antagonize one another, in particular that of abscisic acid. Specificity in multiple stress responses is further controlled by a range of biochemical and molecular mechanisms that act together in a complex regulatory network. Transcription factors, kinase cascades, and reactive oxygen species are key components of this cross talk as are heat shock factors and small RNAs. This review emphasis on elucidating the proteins associated with abiotic and biotic stresses in plants.
