摘要：Wheat is one of the most important food crops, and its yield is seriously restricted by high salinity and other abiotic stresses. Many attempts have been made to elucidate the major physiological processes associated with salt tolerance and to identify the genes controlling the processes. In this review, the major role of high-affinity potassium transporter (HKT) genes in enhancing the salt tolerance of wheat is summarized. The link between maintenance of reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasis and salt tolerance through a comprehensive study of a wheat introgression line is examined, and the contribution of a set of genes involved in this process is depicted. New research strategies to uncover the mechanisms underlying salt tolerance in wheat based on recent advances in omics will be discussed.
