Effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers applied during successive crop seasons on growth and nitrate accumulation in lettuce
Abstract A romaine-type lettuce ( Lactuca sativa L.) cv. Corsica was cultivated during three successive crop seasons (late-spring, late-autumn and late-winter) in the same soil of an experimentalExpand

Toxoplasma Parasite Twisting Motion Mechanically Induces Host Cell Membrane Fission to Complete Invasion within a Protective Vacuole.
To invade cells, the parasite Toxoplasma gondii injects a multi-unit nanodevice into the target cell plasma membrane (PM). The core nanodevice, which is composed of the RhOptry Neck (RON) proteinExpand

Apicomplexan F-actin is required for efficient nuclear entry during host cell invasion
The obligate intracellular parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium spp. invade host cells by injecting a protein complex into the membrane of the targeted cell that bridges the two cells throughExpand

Coupling Polar Adhesion with Traction, Spring and Torque Forces Allows High Speed Helical Migration of the Protozoan Parasite Toxoplasma.
Among the eukaryotic cells that navigate through fully developed metazoan tissues, protozoans from the Apicomplexa phylum have evolved motile developmental stages that move much faster than theExpand

Francisella novicida and F. philomiragia biofilm features conditionning fitness in spring water and in presence of antibiotics
Biofilms are currently considered as a predominant lifestyle of many bacteria in nature. While they promote survival of microbes, biofilms also potentially increase the threats to animal and publicExpand

Efficient urea-N and KNO3-N uptake by vegetable plants using fertigation
Vegetable production demands high nitrogen inputs. Fertigation is a means to increase fertilizer-N use by plants. However, the effect of different N sources and doses, and how they relate to theExpand
