Abscisic acid induced MYB transcription factor (AIM1) was not expressed in non-treated tomato plants, and it had strong expression with NaCl and AgNP treatment combinations with the exception of NaCl200 AgNPs2 treatment, which had the lowest expression level and the level was similar to the non-treated plants.
However, AIM1 expression increased by 2.71-fold after exposure to AgNPs under NaCl150.
Of the investigated salt stress genes in tomato plants, the AIM1, AGP-S1, APX2, LOX1 and MAPK2 genes were expressed only under NaCl stress, and they were not expressed in non-treated plants.
The Aurora-B is encoded by the AURKB gene (also known as AIK2; AIM1
; ARK2; AurB; IPL1; STK5; AIM1
; STK12), mapped to chromosome 17p13.1, and consisting of 9 exons (Gene ID: 9212).
