The wheat (Triticum aestivum), is one of the most important crops in the world and plays a special role human nutrition. Salt stress has became a severe global problem in the last decades and salinity is one of the most important abiotic factors limiting plant growth and yield, affecting morphological, anatomical, biochemical and physiological characteristics in plants. One of the biochemical parameters affected by salinity is protein synthesis. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the NaCl treatment effect on protein content of three seedlings wheat cultivars (Faur, Iasi 2, Fundulea). The results evidenced that saline treatment determined modifications of soluble protein content at the early stages of seedling development depending on: the type of cultivar, the intensity of salt exposure (50mM, 100mM, 150mM and 200mM) and the age of seedling.
