  • Six-day-old seedlings were transferred to agar plates containing MS medium or MS medium supplemented with NaCl or KCl. Root elongation occurring within the 10-d period after transfer is presented. Values are means ± se; n = 15.

  • a Significantly different from salt cress wild type (P < 0.05; Student's t test).

  • b Significantly different from salt cress wild type (P < 0.01; Student's t test).
