Effects of Zinc Stress on Growth, Photosynthetic Pigments, Antioxidative Enzymes and Protein Content of Black Gram

Posted on

The response of black gram (Vigna mungo L.) at different levels of Zn {i.e. control (0.065 ppm), low level (0.0065 ppm) and toxic level (6.5 ppm)} was investigated. Deficient and toxic levels of zinc suppressed the growth of black gram seedlings as compared to control. A significant reduction was seen in height & biomass of plant at toxic levels of zinc as compared to deficient. Also levels of photosynthetic pigments showed similar depreciation at toxic levels of applied Zn than deficient and control. Zinc deficiency and toxicity were associated with an increase in the activities of anti-oxidative enzymes such as catalase and peroxidase. Zinc stress ceased the concentration of DNA, RNA and protein content in young seedlings of black gram. Zinc toxicity proved to be more deleterious for black gram than zinc deficiency.

Response of Photosynthetic Capacity to Soil Moisture in Xanthostemon chrysantus (F. Muell.) Benth.

Posted on Updated on

A study was carried out to investigate the physiological response of a landscape tree, Xanthostemon chrysantus (F. Muell.) Benth. planted at two urban sites in Kuala Lumpur. Photosynthetic rate (A), transpiration rate (E), stomatal conductance (gs) and water use efficiency (WUE) at flushing, flowering and fruiting stages of the trees grown at Metropolitan Batu Park (MBP) and Pusat Bandar Manjalara (PBM) were recorded for a year during rainy and dry periods. Soil samples of both sites were also analysed for physical properties. Significant different in A, E, gs and WUE were observed at flushing stage of both rainy and dry periods. At flowering stage, significant different was noted in A for both periods, while variations only recorded among E and gs during dry period. Physiological traits at fruiting stage were similar at both periods for MBP and PBM. Trees at PBM had higher WUE at flushing during rainy and dry periods than those trees at MBP, showing higher capability of utilising water while reducing water lost through transpiration. The sandy loam soil of the study plots contains more than 67% of sand, reducing the moisture content, hence affecting photosynthetic capacity of the trees. Xanthostemon chrysantus however, can be considered as a hardy species because it can tolerate the harsh condition of the planting sites.

The Ameliorative Effects of Silicon on Salt-Stressed Sorghum Seedlings and Its Influence on the Activities of Sucrose Synthase and PEP Carboxylase

Posted on

Under salt stress, Silicon is considered a beneficial element for the growth of higher plants as it alleviates the harmful effects caused by salt. In the present study, Sorghum bicolor L. seedlings were grown hydroponically in growth units, filled with continuously aerated half strength of Hoagland-nutrient solution. Different treatments were manipulated to examine the negative effects of NaCl and the combined effect of NaCl with Si on seedlings growth, chlorophyll content, soluble protein content, ion accumulation, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPCase) and sucrose synthase (SS) activities. The salt induced decrease in seedling growth was relieved upon treatment with Si. Meanwhile, the sucrose and glucose levels were significantly increased and there was a reduction in sodium concentrations in the salt-stressed plants treated with silicon. The PEPCase activity in sorghum seedlings subjected to salt-stress was higher in the treatment with Si than that without Si, but did not significantly differ from that of control.

Aggressiveness of Cuban Papaya ringspot virus Isolates on Carica papaya L. cv. Maradol Roja under Greenhouse Conditions

Posted on

Carica papaya is a major fruit crop in tropical and subtropical regions; however, its production has several constraints. Papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) is the most important pathogen affecting papaya plantations. Symptoms induced by a known PRSV isolate on papaya plants after mechanical inoculation were described to elaborate an evaluation scale under greenhouse conditions. The aggressiveness of 24 Cuban PRSV isolates was determined by assessing symptom severity induced on papaya plants cv. Maradol roja under greenhouse conditions. An evaluation scale of 0 to 6 scores was elaborated based on the observations of PRSV symptom progress. Symptoms induced by Cuban PRSV isolates included vein clearing, mottling and swelling zones on the adaxial leaf surface, slight deformation of young leaves and distortion. PRSV isolates from Nueva Paz, Güines, and San José de Las Lajas in the west, Sancti Spíritus in the center, and Palma Soriano and Puerto Padre in the east of the country were the most aggressive according to their area under the disease progress curve values. Knowledge about the aggressiveness of this virus is crucial for selecting PRSV isolates to implement management strategies and papaya breeding programs in Cuba.

Recent updates on drug abuse analyzed by neuroproteomics

Posted on

Currently, drug abuse and addiction represent a global public health concern with about 13.6 million people using illicit drugs in the USA alone. Substance abuse intervenes in normal brain functioning, causing alterations in memory, behavior and neuronal physiology. Although many studies have been conducted to elucidate the mode of action of different drugs, the heterogeneous modes of drug intake led to a complicated profile of drug-induced brain to know more please visit https://www.scitechnol.com/abstract/evaluation-of-tryptic-peptides-from-neisseria-meningitidis-outer-membrane-proteins-pora-and-porbrndigestion-peptides-6670.html

Experts Warn Against Recommending Compounded Bioidentical Hormones in Menopause

Posted on

Compounded bioidentical hormones (cBHT) are risky at best and most likely hazardous, and should be regulated by the Food and Drug Administration just as other menopausal hormone therapy products are,1 according to JoAnn E. Manson, MD, DrPH, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Cynthia A. Stuenkel, MD, clinical professor of medicine, at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.to read more please visit https://www.scitechnol.com/abstract/effect-of-brain-training-on-eyehand-coordination-activities-in-elderly-patients-for-stress-and-type-2-diabetes-mellitus-6509.html
