Modulating infestation rate of white fly (Bemicia tabaci) on okra (Hibiscus esculentus L.) by nitrogen application
TLDR
It is clear that increasing N level increased the biosynthesis or accumulation of protein, free amino acid, and sugars that might have attracted more whitefly for feeding on Okra.
Novel method for monitoring genetically engineered microorganisms in the environment
TLDR
The new method detected the amplified unique marker (0.3-kilobase DNA) of the GEM even after 10 to 14 days of incubation, and has an advantage over the plate count technique, which can detect only culturable microorganisms.
Induction of carbofuran oxidation to 4-hydroxycarbofuran by Pseudomonas sp. 50432.
TLDR
This is the first report in which an inducible oxidative enzyme, hydroxylase, mediated the conversion of carbofuran to 4-hydroxycarbofuran.
Cardiovascular effects of mycotoxin T-2 after topical application in rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that topical applications of small doses of T-2 toxin have a noticeable negative effect on cardiovascular function.
The vespid fauna of Pakistan.
This study provides the first annotated check list of the Vespidae of Pakistan. It is based on the National Insect Museum collection and various studies in Pakistan. Among 105 identified taxa, 77
Systemic effects of topically applied trichothecenes. I. Comparative study of various trichothecenes in mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that topical application of various trichothecenes results in characteristic toxic effects, yet these occur at different times and to varying degrees, yet the early systemic effects were found to be in partial agreement only with the mortality study.
Systemic effects of topically applied trichothecenes. III. The role of absorption enhancers.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that topical application of trichothecenes can cause systemic disease and/ or death, depending on the dose, and that solvents or carriers and/or absorption enhancers play an important, species-dependent, role.
Systemic effects of topically applied trichothecenes. II. Studies with T-2 toxin in rats.
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that rats are very susceptible to the effects of topically applied T-2 toxin, and constitute a most suitable model for the study of this toxin or its congeners.
