This study aimed to evaluate the effects of different iron concentrations on growth characteristics, antioxidant enzyme activities, nutrient absorption, and anatomical changes in sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.). To accomplish this, seedlings from apical branches of plants that had already been established in the greenhouse were rooted in a hydroponic(More)
Many studies use strategies that allow for the identification of a large number of genes expressed in response to different stress conditions to which the plant is subjected throughout its cycle. In order to obtain accurate and reliable results in gene expression studies, it is necessary to use reference genes, which must have uniform expression in the(More)
The objective of this study was to relate the activation of enzymatic antioxidant system to the production of reactive oxygen species induced by salt stress. Rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes BRS Bojuru and BRS Pampa, tolerant and sensitive to salinity, respectively, were subjected to 150 mM NaCl for 0, 6, 24, 48, and 72 h. A significant increase of(More)
Abiotic stresses such as salinity, iron toxicity, and low temperatures are the main limiting factors of rice (Oryza sativa L.) yield. The elucidation of the genes involved in responses to these stresses is extremely important to understand the mechanisms that confer tolerance, as well as for the development of cultivars adapted to these conditions. In this(More)
To obtain accurate and reliable results for the expression of genes of interest using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) techniques, it is necessary to normalize the data by comparing them to constitutive genes that exhibit uniform expression levels under experimental conditions. In this study, the stability of expression was(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a multidisciplinary clinical protocol for obesity treatment by mapping it against the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and to determine the areas, defined by the ICF, in which no standardized assessment tools are available. METHOD Assessment instruments used by a multidisciplinary team were(More)
Bacterial contamination represents a serious problem for plant tissue culture research and applications. Bacterial interference with normal plant physiology and morphology can generate misleading conclusions if the presence of bacteria is ignored. Bacterial contaminants in in vitro plant culture are typically detected by direct observation; thus, it is(More)
Abiotic stresses caused by excessive cold, iron, and salt are among the main growth and yield-limiting factors of rice. Among the metabolic processes, photosynthesis stands out for being closely related to crop yields, causing a yield decline by reduced photosynthetic capacity in plants under abiotic stresses. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the(More)
This study evaluated the metabolism of proline in rice based on the expression pattern of genes involved in biosynthesis and catabolism of amino acid and determined the correlation with the proline content produced under stress. In stage V4, genotypes with a differentiated response to salinity and low-temperature stresses were exposed separately to two test(More)
Transcriptome of Prunus persica revealed several and specific differences in gene expression when subjected to flooding, which provides valuable information for identifying mechanisms involved in the response under stressful conditions. Soil flooding stress in fruit trees affects growth, vegetative and reproductive development, which is reflected in low(More)
