Genetic manipulation technologies have been limited in the halophyte Suaeda salsa L. due to the lack of an efficient transformation system. Here, we examined factors affecting transformation and developed an efficient transformation system at the cell level using S. salsa hypocotyl as starting material. S. salsa hypocotyl explants from 10-day-old seedlings(More)
Suaeda salsa calluses cultured in darkness for 28 d were transferred to Murashige and Skoog (MS) media containing various growth regulators under white light conditions for 10 d to investigate cell growth, betacyanin accumulation, and expression of dopa-4,5-dioxygenase (DODA). Callus growth was markedly promoted when 0.2 mg·L−1 2,4-D and 0.5 mg·L−1 6-BA(More)
Suaeda salsa calli cultured in darkness for 28 days were transferred to Murashige and Skoog (MS) media containing 0.5 mg l−1 Thidiazuron (TDZ) and 1.0 mg l−1 naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) under different light conditions for 10 days to investigate effect of light on betacyanin accumulation and its relation to activity and expression of tyrosinase and(More)
BACKGROUND L-glutamate (L-GLU) is a major neurotransmitter in the nucleus ambiguus (NA), which can modulate respiration, arterial pressure, heart rate, etc. This study investigated the effects and mechanisms of L-GLU microinjected into NA on gastric motility in rats. METHODS A latex balloon connected with a pressure transducer was inserted into the(More)
AIM To explore the effect of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) on restraint water-immersion stress (RWIS)-induced gastric lesions in rats and the influence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels and nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) pathway on such an effect. METHODS Male Wistar rats were randomly(More)
We have previously reported that both l-glutamate (l-Glu) and nitric oxide (NO) modulate gastric motility in the nucleus ambiguus (NA). The aim of this study is to explore the potential correlation between the l-Glu and NO. A latex balloon connected to a pressure transducer was inserted into the pylorus through the fundus of anesthetized male Wistar rats to(More)
