NaCl treatment causes an increase in peroxisome number.

Seeds expressing the peroxisome targeted GFP-MFP2 fusion protein (A5 line) were sown on 0.5x MS media supplemented with 1% sucrose and either 150 mM NaCl, 200 mM mannitol or no addition (control). After 5 days the peroxisomes in the roots were imaged by confocal microscopy. Scale bar  = 20 µm.
