Transcript of "Plant stress responses"

  1. 1. PLANT STRESS RESPONSE
  2. 2. STRESS <ul><li>Manifold unfavourable, but not necessarily immediately lethal conditions, occurring either permanently or sporadically in a locality </li></ul><ul><li>Significant deviation from optimal conditions for life </li></ul><ul><li>Elicit responses and changes at all functional levels of the organism </li></ul><ul><li>May be first reversible, but may become permanent </li></ul>
  3. 3. STRESS <ul><li>Conditions that adversely affect growth, development, productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Abiotic (phy/che environment) </li></ul><ul><li>Biotic (organisms) </li></ul><ul><li>Abiotic- water logging, drought, high or low temperatures, excessive soil salinity, inadequate mineral nutrients, too much or too little light, ozone </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>STRESS FACTOR (stressor) – stress stimulus </li></ul><ul><li>STRESS RESPONSE (state of stress)- response to stimulus + ensuing state of adaptation </li></ul><ul><li>Avoidance of stress (protective) </li></ul><ul><li>Tolerance </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamics of stress- destabilizing, destructive component ( distress ) + counter mechanisms to promote restabilization and resistance ( eustress ) </li></ul>
  5. 5. RESISTANCE <ul><li>Depends on </li></ul><ul><li>Species </li></ul><ul><li>Genotype </li></ul><ul><li>Devt. Age of plant </li></ul><ul><li>Tissue identity </li></ul><ul><li>Duration, severity, rate of stress </li></ul>

  7. 7. STRESS RESPONSE <ul><li>Race b/w effort to adapt and potentially lethal processes in protoplasm </li></ul><ul><li>Triggered by stress or stress- induced injury (membrane integrity loss) </li></ul><ul><li>Some- enable plant to acclimatize to stress </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Altered gene expression- changes in development, metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>Initiated when plant recognizes stress at cellular level- proteins that sense abiotic stress </li></ul><ul><li>Transmit information within individual cells and through out the plant </li></ul><ul><li>increase in specific mRNA, enhanced translation, stabilization of proteins, alteration of protein activity </li></ul>
