Polyphenols, flavonoids and antioxidant activity involved in salt tolerance in wheat, Aegilops cylindrica and their amphidiploids

Front. Plant Sci., 25 March 2021 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fpls.2021.646221

Plain language title

The role of phenolic compounds in plant tolerance to salt stress
 
What is it about?
The accumulation of phenolic compounds including flavonoids in wheat plants in response to salt stress was investigated.  
 
Why is it important?

1- This paper presents one of the first comprehensive analyses of the polyphenols' antioxidant and protective salt stress-induced oxidative stress in plants.

2- The vigorous antioxidant activity and robust accumulation of phenolic compounds in the leaves of tolerant genotypes would imply greater sophistication in genetic diversity for the evolvement of defense-oriented strategies to prevent the accumulation of intracellular free radicals generated under salt stress in plants.

 
Perspectives

The accumulation of phenolic compounds including flavonoids in wheat plants in response to salt stress coincides with a dual protective effect as an antioxidant against oxidative damage induced by the stress, and subsequently as the health-promoting compounds of edible plants.
