Determination of oxidants and antioxidants concentration levels in Gh_A08G1120 (GH3.5)-silenced plants and their wild types under drought and salt stress conditions: (A (i) Quantitative determination of malondialdehyde (MDA) (A (ii) Quantitative determination of SOD concentration. (A (iii) Quantitative determination of proline content in leaves of wild-type and VIGs plants after 8-day post stress exposure (B). RT-qPCR analysis of the change in the expression level of the GhMYB, GhSOD and GhP5CS stress resistant genes in cotton plants treated with VIGS. “TRV: 00” represents the plants carrying control the TRV2 empty vector, “TRV: Gh_A08G1120 (GH3.5)” represents the Gh_A08G1120 (GH3.5) -silenced plants. In each experiment was repeated three times. Bar indicates standard error (SE). Different letters indicate significant differences between wild type and OE lines (ANOVA; p < 0.05). CK: indicate normal conditions
