Table 1 STGs and their probable mechanism of action for salt tolerance

From: Salt tolerance mechanisms in Salt Tolerant Grasses (STGs) and their prospects in cereal crop improvement

Grass genera Mechanism of action
Agropyron Compartmentation of ions, Na+ ion exclusion
Aeluropus Compartmentation of ions in to vacuoles
Chloris Enhanced ROS scavenging enzymes
Leymus Osmolyte accumulation
Paspalum Osmolyte accumulation
Pennisetum Compartmentation of ions in to vacuoles
Porteresia Osmolyte accumulation
Puccinellia Enhanced ROS scavenging enzymes, Na+ ion exclusion
Spartina Compartmentation of ions in to vacuoles
