A rapid one-step procedure for purification of mononuclear and polymorphonuclear leukocytes from human blood using a modification of the Hypaque-Ficoll technique.
A one-step procedure for purification of mononuclear and polymorphonuclear cells from human blood is described. It is a modification of the Hypaque-Ficoll method with density of 1.095 g/ml.… Expand

The complex juvenile/maturity transition during a plant’s life cycle includes growth, reproduction, and senescence of its fundamental organs: leaves, flowers, and fruits. Growth and senescence of… Expand
Biostimulants and crop responses: a review
Agricultural growing practices have been evolving towards organic, sustainable or environmental friendly systems. The aim of modern agriculture is to reduce inputs without reducing the yield and… Expand
Drought, abscisic acid and transpiration rate effects on the regulation of PIP aquaporin gene expression and abundance in Phaseolus vulgaris plants.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Drought causes a decline of root hydraulic conductance, which aside from embolisms, is governed ultimately by aquaporins. Multiple factors probably regulate aquaporin expression,… Expand
Bacterial Lipopolysaccharide and Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Synergistically Increase Expression of Human Endothelial Adhesion Molecules through Activation of NF-κB and p38 Mitogen-Activated Protein…
ABSTRACT One of the recognized associations of bacterial infection with cardiovascular events is the activation of endothelium and upregulation of adhesion molecules. The two major proinflammatory… Expand
Role of abscisic acid in perianth senescence of daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus"Dutch Master").
Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus L. 'Dutch Master') flowers detached at the base of their ovaries and held with their cut ends in 10-100 microM abscisic acid (ABA) senesced prematurely. Symptoms… Expand

The plant hormone ethylene is involved in many physiological processes, including plant growth, development and senescence. Ethylene also plays a pivotal role in plant response or adaptation under… Expand
Thidiazuron —a potent inhibitor of leaf senescence in Alstroemeria
Abstract The time to flower senescence and leaf yellowing in 20 cut flower cultivars of Alstroemeria was studied. In deionized water (DI), the time to abscission of the first petal ranged from 9 to… Expand
Synthesis and Surface Expression of CD14 by Human Endothelial Cells
ABSTRACT Previous studies have reported that human vascular endothelial cells lack the membrane-bound lipopolysaccharide (LPS) receptor, CD14 (mCD14). By optimizing assay conditions, including the… Expand
