Drought is one of the major factors limiting the yield of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.). The identification of candidate genes for marker-assisted selection (MAS) could greatly improve the efficiency of breeding for increased drought tolerance. Drought-induced changes in the proteome could highlight important genes. Two genotypes of sugar beet (7112 and(More)
Saline soils are the major problem of cultivated lands of Iran. Suaeda aegyptiaca is a salt-tolerant plant (halophytes) that grow naturally in salt-affected areas of Iran. We have employed proteomics to identify the mechanisms of salt responsiveness in leaves of S. aegyptiaca grown under different salt concentrations. Ten-day-old plants were treated with 0,(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa) is most sensitive to salinity during the reproductive stage. We employed a proteomic approach to further understand the mechanism of plant responses to salinity at an early reproductive stage. Plants were grown in culture solution and salt stress imposed at panicle initiation. After 12 days of stress, young panicles were collected from(More)
The present study concentrated on introducing a micropropagation protocol for a drought resistant genotype from Pyrus boissieriana, which is the second most naturally widespread pear species in Iran with proper physiological and medicinal properties. Proliferating microshoot cultures were obtained by placing nodal segments on MS medium supplemented with BAP(More)
The risk sharing principles of Islamic finance as embodied in mudarabah and musharakah contracts have been extensively used throughout history. For example, the maritime trades of 14 century Italian city-states with Middle East and Asia were financed by ‘sea loans’ and ‘commenda’. Historians have traced the development of commenda to borrowing from the(More)
Asiatic citrus canker caused by Xannthomonas citr subsp. citri (Xcc) is endemic in many citrus-growing areas damaging citrus industry. It is expected that citrus plants respond to bacterial infection through generation of more reactive oxygen species, which is an indication of stress. In order to evaluate the stress level caused via Xcc, antioxidant(More)
Citrus bacterial canker, caused by Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri (Xcc), is a destructive disease. So far, the chemicals used to control this pathogen are either ineffective or harmful to the environment. To improve control of this disease, lime (Citrus aurantifolia) were treated with L-arginine, L-methionine, L-ornithine, and distilled water. Plants were(More)
This article brought energy demands, energy supply and government regulation into a nonlinear dynamics system with the analysis of the relationship between the variables and their influence on energy resource. A simple estimation method for the various parameters involved in the model is given. The dynamics behavior of the system is analyzed by means of(More)
Our objective is to assess the economic performance of Middle Eastern oil-exporting countries over the past 25 years based on their general economic characteristics (economic dependence on a depletable resource) and attendant policy requirements (transforming to a non-depletable resource-based economy). As oil-exporting countries, we assess the(More)
