Effect of 3OC6-HSL on root growth in Arabidopsis and wheat. Seedlings were treated with 1 μM 3OC6-HSL or/and 150 mM NaCl after seeds germination. The changes of root phenotype were observed after 6 days treatment in Arabidopsis and wheat. a, e Non-treated control plants; b, f 3OC6-HSL treated plants; c, g NaCl treated plants; d, h 3OC6-HSL and NaCl co-treated plants; i root length of Arabidopsis; j root length of wheat; k shoot length of wheat. bar = 1 cm, values are mean ± SD of three independent experiments. Different letters indicate statistically significant differences (P < 0.05, Duncan’s test)
