AbstractThe role of salicylic acid (0, 1 and 1.5 mM) on photosynthetic electron transfer chain of mung-bean plants grown under salt stress (0, 3, 6 and 9 dS/m(2)) was studied using chlorophyll a fluorescence (ChlF) measurements. Results indicated that accumulation of K+ content decreased but, Na+ content increased with increasing salt stress. SA-treated plants had more K+ and less Na+ content compared with the non-SA treated plants. Application of SA, especially with 1 mM, increased the I-P step of the OJIP transient curve of fluorescence. Salt stress decreased g(s), CCI, F-V, F-M, S-M and PIabs in plants. However, the time taken to reach FM (TFM) increased with increasing salt stress. Application of different concentrations of SA significantly improved gs, CCI, FV, SM, and PIabs of plants. Photosynthetic efficiency of plants improved as a result of SA application via decreasing F-o and increasing F-V/F-M, F-V/F-O, S-M/T-FM and Area under both saline and non-saline conditions. Accumulation of Na+ had negative, but K+ had a positive correlation with gs, CCI and most of the chlorophyll a fluorescence parameters (except, Fo and TFM). A positive correlation was found between g(s) and CCI with PIabs. This research indicated that low gs under saline condition seems to cause losses in PSII efficiency, but the application of SA with 1 mM concentration is the best treatment for the alleviation of salt stress injuries on PSII activity of mung bean plants.
