The Role of Salicylic Acid and Nitric Oxide in Plant Heat Response

This book explores the intricate world of plant signaling by unraveling the synergistic roles of salicylic acid and nitric oxide in plant adaptation. This captivating exploration illuminates the pivotal roles of salicylic acid (SA) and nitric oxide (NO) as master regulators of plant responses to changing environmental dynamics. SA, a phenolic maestro, wields its mastery in steering metabolic pathways, stimulating plants’ tolerance against abiotic stresses. Meanwhile, the enigmatic nitrogen monoxide (NO) emerges as a redox regulator, modulating growth and physiology amid high temperature stress. NO's role as a second messenger resonates through physiological processes, igniting antioxidant defenses, modulating osmolyte levels, and harmonizing stress-responsive genes. This volume seeks to highlight the covert alliance between SA and NO, more specifically their potential collaboration in alleviating high temperature-induced oxidative stress. The book offers basic yet enchanting voyage into the nexus of plant adaptation.

Dr Krishna Kumar Rai earned his PhD in biotechnology at Banaras Hindu University, India, where he is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Botany. He has more than nine years of research experience, particularly in abiotic and biotic stress tolerance in vegetable crops and cyanobacteria. His research interests also include the bio-potential applications of phytohormones and signaling molecules for enhancing plant stress tolerance, as well as novel stress defense pathways genes and their potential biotechnological application for strengthening global food security. Dr Rai has published more than forty research articles, twenty book chapters and one edited book. He is a lifetime member of the Indian Society of Vegetable Science (ISVS), and received the Best Poster and Best Research Paper awards from the ISVS in 2017 and 2018. He is also a member of scientific advisory board for BMC Plant Biology, BMC Genomics, the Journal of Applied Biology and Biotechnology and the editorial board of the Journal of Agriculture and Livestock Farming.
