Photosynthetic plasticity of Phalaenopsis in response to different light environments.
The ability of a plant to dynamically acclimate to different light environments is, in general, genetically determined. Phalaenopsis amabilis is a CAM orchid with heavy self-shading. The aim of thisExpand

On the possibility of using a chlorophyll fluorescence parameter as an indirect indicator for the growth of Phalaenopsis seedlings
Abstract Chlorophyll fluorescence has been widely used in studies of plant physiology. The objective of this work is to seek the possibility of using a fluorescence parameter as an indirect indicatorExpand

Molecular identification for epigallocatechin-3-gallate-mediated antioxidant intervention on the H2O2-induced oxidative stress in H9c2 rat cardiomyoblasts
BackgroundEpigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has been documented for its beneficial effects protecting oxidative stress to cardiac cells. Previously, we have shown the EGCG-mediated cardiac protectionExpand

The high-affinity binding site for manganese on the oxidizing side of Photosystem II
Abstract Electron donation to Photosystem II (PS II) by diphenylcarbazide (DPC) is interrupted by the presence of endogenous Mn in PS II particles. Removal of this Mn by Tris treatment greatlyExpand

A Method for Analysis of Fluorescence Induction Curve From Dcmu-Poisoned Chloroplasts
The kinetic analysis of fluorescence induction curve from DCMU- poisoned chloroplasts involves the calculation of the growth of the complementary area above the curve with time. It has been shownthatExpand

Diatrizoate contrast agents: 2-amino-5-acetamido-, and 3,5-diamino-2,4,6-triiodobenzoates.
We have examined the metabolic behavior of several triiodobenzoic acid derivatives because of the observed mutagenicity and cytotoxicity of 3-amino-5-acetamido-2,4,6-triiodobenzoate (I) andExpand
