Rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings were grown hydroponically in Hoagland’s nutrient solution under controlled conditions to investigate the effects of NaCl pretreatment on their response to subsequent application of cadmium (Cd) alone and Cd + NaCl combination. The Cd stress caused growth retardation in all plants, significantly reduced pigment content,(More)
Aiming to explore the basis of heterosis in rapeseed, QTLs for yield and three yield component traits were mapped and the digenic interactions were detected in an F2 population derived from a cross between two elite rapeseed lines, SI-1300 and Eagle, in this study. Twenty-eight QTLs were detected for the four yield traits, with only two of them detected(More)
Endogenous salicylic acid (SA) functions in plant response to an aluminum stress were assessed. We used different Arabidopsis thaliana genotypes including snc1 with a constitutively high content of SA, sid2 and nahG (transgenic lines) both with a low content of SA, SA insensitive mutant npr1-1, and snc1/nahG (i.e., the nahG expression in the snc1(More)
We estimated the influence of plasmids with DNA carrying the neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) gene on apoptosis in the gastrocnemius muscle and content of Ca2+-ATPase in the latter after sciatic nerve injury. Sixty adult Wistar rats were randomly divided into the saline (control) and NT-3 groups. The related indices, such as expression of caspase-3 protein, the rate(More)
