AIM To investigate the protective effect of tribulosin, a monomer of the gross saponins from Tribulus terrestris, against cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injury and the underlying mechanism in rats. METHODS Isolated rat hearts were subjected to 30 min of ischemia followed by 120 min of reperfusion using Langendorff's technique. The hearts were assigned to(More)
A phospholipase Dα gene ( AnPLDα ) was cloned from xerophytic desert plant Ammopiptanthus nanus and its overexpression enhanced salt tolerance of a PLDα1 deficient Arabidopsis mutant. Phospholipase Dα (PLDα) hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to produce phosphatidic acid, and plays crucial role in plant tolerance to abiotic stress. In this study, a(More)
The halophyte Thellungiella salsuginea is a new model plants due to its small genome size, short life cycle, and copious seed production. Although T. salsuginea shares a high sequence identity with its close relative Arabidopsis thaliana, it shows a greater tolerance to salinity, drought, freezing, heat, and cold. To elucidate the mechanism of abiotic(More)
