Stomata are leaf structures that are essential for regulating gas exchange and water balance in terrestrial plants. Accurately quantifying stomatal characteristics is consequently of great importance for understanding the physiological processes of plants under different environmental conditions. The objective of this study was to investigate the spatial(More)
A plant’s ability to survive in a stressful environment is correlated with its nutritional status, which can be affected by cadmium (Cd) uptake. The present study evaluated the influence of Cd on the concentrations and distributions of nutrients in the roots and shoots of the Cd-hyperaccumulator Pfaffia glomerata (Sprengel) Pedersen. Plantlets were(More)
Interleukin-18 is a proinflammatory cytokine belonging to the interleukin-1 family of cytokines. This cytokine exerts many unique biological and immunological effects. To explore the role of IL-18 in inflammatory innate immune responses, we investigated its impact on expression of two toll-like receptors (TLR2 and TLR4) and mannose receptor (MR) by human(More)
