Salicylic acid, which is biosynthesized inside plant and is often found and accumulated in soil due to plant debris decaying, is considered as a signaling substance during plant-microbe interactions. It is involved in the cycling of biogeochemistry and related to plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stress. The antibiotic effect of salicylic acid on(More)
Assessment of compost maturity is crucial for achieving high quality compost in order to guarantee its marketability. In this context, a novel technique that combines fluorescence excitation-emission matrices (EEMs) with parallel factor (PARAFAC) analysis to assess compost maturity is presented. A total of 60 fluorescence EEMs of composts were successfully(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish and optimize ISSR-PCR system of Dendrobiwn officinale according to the ISSR-PCR characters of D. officinale. METHOD The effects of ISSR-PCRs was examined by selecting primers and designing different concentrations of the factors in the ISSR-PCRs, the reliable ISSR-PCR systems for D. officinale populations researching was established(More)
Methotrexate (MTX) is an anchor drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but responsiveness is variable in effectiveness and toxicity. Methotrexate and its polyglutamate conjugates (MTXPG(n)) in red blood cells (RBC) have been associated with patient response. In the current study, 13 collagen-induced arthritic (CIA) rats and 12 healthy rats were given(More)
AIM Genetic diversity, relationship and molecular authentication of total 8 wild populations of Dendrobium officinale were investigated using RAPD markers. METHODS 10 random decamer primers were screened for Random Amplified Polymophic DNA (RAPD) fragments. A DNA molecular dendrogram was established based on cluster analysis by UPGMA (unweighted(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of a cryptic plasmid pPZZ84 from Bacillus pumilus strain ZZ84 was determined. Plasmid pPZZ84 is 6817bp long with GC content of 36.7%. Seven putative open reading frames were identified. ORF7 shows 91% and 90% amino acid identity with rep proteins of pSH1452 and pPL1, respectively, members of rolling-circle replication (RCR)(More)
Gallic acid was artificially added to the media to grow Fusarium oxysporum f.sp.niveum to investigate its effect on the pathogenic fungus. Results indicate that gallic acid inhibited the growth of F. oxysporum f.sp.niveum. The colony diameter, the conidia germinating rate and the conidia yield were reduced by 5.7-22.9%%, 35.8-55.6% and 38.9-62.2%(More)
Due to uncertainties in target motion and limited sensing regions of sensors, collaborative target tracking in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) suffers from low tracking accuracy and lack of reliability when a target cannot be detected by a scheduled sensor. Generally, actuating multiple sensors can achieve better tracking performance but with high energy(More)
Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) is having a severe effect on the pig breeding industry in central China. The mucosa and the content of the small intestine from newborn pre-weaned piglets with diarrhea were tested for the presence of PEDV by molecular and morphologic methods, and found to be positive. Negative-staining electron microscopy (EM)(More)
OBJECTIVE To select optimal media and conditions for the tissue culture of Dendrobium lituiforum. METHOD The basic media, light illumination condition, phytohormone, and natural aqueous extracts. were tested and compared. The chlorophyll contents and soluble protein contents were measured. RESULT N6 medium was suitable for embryo germination and growth.(More)
