Transport and metabolism of sulphate under salt stress

  • Nina I. Shevyakova
Part of the Developments in Plant and Soil Sciences book series (DPSS, volume 4)


The incorporation of sulphur into important cell components such as sulphur-containing amino acids, vitamins, proteins, lipids and so on begins with the uptake of sulphate followed by some initial stages of its conversion. Under the normal concentration of sulphate ions in the soil sulphur metabolism in plants proceeds at the optimal level. But under soil salinity a surplus of sulphate and chloride in plants leads to drastic changes in sulphur metabolism.
