    Salt stress-induced cell death was investigated in barley roots. Cleavage of nuclear DNA was observed 1 h after salt stress. Oligonucleosomal fragments of DNA were detected electrophoretically 8 h after salt stress. These phenomena indicate that apoptosis-like cell death can occur under salt stress.
