Priming is one of the mechanisms for the induction of the antioxidant defense system and various stress-responsive proteins which help plants to survive under various abiotic stresses. Based on the observation that the rice seedlings primed with UV-B (low dose of UV-B irradiation-6 kJm-2) induced the acclimation against NaCl, PEG and UV-B stresses, it was of interest to see the augmentation of antioxidative potential and stress-responsive proteins accumulation in rice seedlings due to UV-B priming under these stresses. Various stresses result in production of ROS, which cause membrane degradation resulting in the accumulation of malondialdehyde. These negative impacts were observed exceedingly in rice seedlings from non-primed PEG stress (NP+P) condition than UV-B and NaCl stresses. The production of non-enzymatic antioxidants, activity/mRNA-level expressions of enzymatic antioxidants and stress-responsive proteins were effectively augmented in UV-B-primed rice seedlings subjected to NaCl stress (P+N) condition followed by UV-B stress (P+U) and PEG stress (P+P). The activation of stress-responsive proteins (HSP and LEA) in rice due to the UV-B priming of rice seedlings is being reported for the first time. The results revealed that the UV-B seedling priming was alleviating the effect of NaCl, PEG, and UV-B stresses in rice seedlings. The positive impacts of UV-B seedling priming were more prominent in rice seedlings subjected to NaCl stress, indicating the cross tolerance imparted by UV-B priming.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
