Salt stress is an increasing problem in agricultural soils in many parts of the world, and salt tolerant cropping systems are in great demand. We investigated the effect of co-inoculation of Galega officinalis with Rhizobium galegae and two plant growth promoting Pseudomonas species on plant growth, nodulation, and N content under salt stress. The effect of(More)
Dystrophin is responsible for the mechanical stabilization of the sarcolemma, and it has been shown that it is one of the most sensitive proteins to ischemic injury. However, the enzyme responsible for this proteolysis is still unknown. Isolated rabbit hearts were subjected to 30 min of global ischemia with and without reperfusion (180 min) to determine(More)

OBJECTIVE A novel phospholipase assay was used to measure for the first time the behavior of endothelial and hepatic phospholipase activities in postheparin human plasma of hemodialyzed patients and its relationship with atherogenic and antiatherogenic lipoprotein levels. METHODS AND RESULTS Endothelial and hepatic phospholipase activity was assessed in a(More)
AIMS Longitudinal and experimental studies have shown that chronic stress contributes to the onset and progression of different diseases. Although it is not possible to eliminate stress completely, people can learn to manage it by participating in different kinds of stress management interventions. This study examined the effectiveness of stress management(More)
UNLABELLED Psychosocial factors have been linked to cardiovascular diseases independently of traditional risk factors. The impact of psychosocial factors on plaque destabilizing factors, such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) has been proposed although scarcely studied. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationships between hostility, perceived stress and(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have tested the relationship between stressful life events (LE) and cancer onset, but inconsistent results have been found. One possibility is that the LE-cancer relation may depend on other biological factors pertinent to stress and cancer. METHODS This study examined the relationship between LE and prostate specific antigen(More)
