Acquired Traits Contribute More to Drought Tolerance in Wheat Than in Rice
Effects of methyl viologen on ROS and RCC production in seedlings of two rice cultivars and one wheat cultivar (Experiment 1). Accumulation of superoxide (O2-), hydroxyl radical (∙OH), malondialdehyde (MDA), and methylglyoxal (MG) contents and extent of membrane damage measured by the Evans blue technique in control, induction, and severe (10 μM) treatments of methyl viologen. †Significant difference between induction and severe stress treatments within cultivars at .¥Significant difference between rice cultivars (IR64 and Apo) in the induction treatment at .
