- ... BACKGROUND: Atriplex canescens is a typical C₄ secretohalophyte with salt bladders on the leaves. Accumulating excessive Na⁺ in tissues and salt bladders, maintaining intracellular K⁺ homeostasis and increasing leaf organic solutes are crucial for A. canescens survival in harsh saline environments, and enhanced photosynthetic activity and water balance promote its adaptation to salt. However, the ...
