Secretoneurin (SN) is a 33-amino acid peptide derived from secretogranin II (chromogranin C) which induces chemotaxis of monocytes but not neutrophils. In this study, we found that SN interacted with specific cell surface binding sites on human monocytes. The chemoattractants MCP-1, MCP-2 or fMLP could not compete for SN binding sites suggesting SN may bind(More)
Legumes can host rhizobia and mycorrhizal fungi, and this triple symbiosis might be exploited to improve saline soil fertility. Therefore, a greater understanding of the interaction of rhizobia and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus during legume growth in saline soil is required. We investigated the efficiency of salt tolerance conferred by rhizobia in(More)
The arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis can alleviate salt stress in plants by altering strigolactone levels in the host plant. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism by which strigolactones enhance salt stress tolerance in arbuscular mycorrhizal Sesbania cannabina seedlings. Strigolactone levels, as determined by means of germination bioassay,(More)
