Salinity is a major abiotic stress, reducing crop production worldwide. To cope with this, plant responses are complex and involve the activation of a plethora of genes. Using transcriptomic analysis we measured, with high precision in leaves and roots, gene expression in Petunia under 150 mM salt stress from a continuum of 48 h. We determined early and late expressed genes in response to NaCl and provide a list of candidate genes to enhance salt stress. We showed that petunia TPS1 is capable of complementing mutant yeast tps1, and that it could be useful in future work to enhance salt stress. View the paper
