Seismic ray tracing is one of the most important tools in seismology which is required in many applications such as body wave tomography and exploration seismology. Due to the large amount of data introduced in global tomography, most studies are still using one-dimensional (1D) ray tracing methods. Furthermore, since three-dimensional (3D) global studies(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to further investigate the effect of amitriptyline, a classical tricyclic antidepressant, on carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats. METHODS First, amitriptyline was administered intraperitoneally (i.p.) at doses of 20, 40 and 80 mg kg-1, 30 min before subplantar injection of carrageenan. Second, amitriptyline was(More)
The present study was designed to explore the anti-inflammatory effect of fluvoxamine, as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) anti-depressant, on carrageenan-induced paw edema in more details. At first, fluvoxamine was administered intra-peritoneally (2.5, 12.5, 25 and 50 mg Kg(-1)) 30 min before the subplantar injection of carrageenan.(More)
BACKGROUND Date Palm Pollen (DPP) and Astragalus genus are used in some countries for the treatment of infertility. OBJECTIVE This study was designed to investigate effects of DPP and Astragalus ovinus (A.Ovinus) on fertility in healthy adult male rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six rats were divided into six groups (n=6) including control and five(More)
BACKGROUND Antibiotics are usually assumed as secondary metabolites produced during the idiophase of microbial growth, which can kill or inhibit the growth of other microorganisms. Nowadays, indiscriminate use of antibiotics has resulted in resistant microorganisms. Therefore, screening researches on products with antimicrobial activities are necessary. (More)
The rate of microshoot proliferation during the micropropagation of olive (Olea europaea L.) plants is limited by the low rates of both bud sprouting and growth of secondary shoots following subculturing. The aim of this study was to determine (1) the effects of sucrose and mannitol on shoot growth, (2) whether either of these sugars modifies the pattern of(More)
In order to evaluate the effect of seed Osmopriming by using PEG6000 priming media on germination behavior and seed vigor of soybean (cultivar 033) an experiment was conducted at Seed analysis laboratory of agricultural and natural resources center of Sari, Iran. Seeds were primed with six levels of Poly ethylene glycol (PEG6000) as priming media (distilled(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was conducted to investigate the hepatoprotective activity of hydro-ethanolic fruit extract of Rosa canina (R. canina) against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male Wistar albino rats were randomly divided into six groups of 8 animals of each, including control, toxic (CCl4), R.(More)
aBStract The present economies are so dependent on the electricity that even the short electricity outages cannot be tolerated. Decisions in Iran's Electricity Grid are made on basis of the effective security of the units, which is rather distant from the price and market based planning. The present research was conducted to forecast the shadow price in(More)
Despite the importance of pod removal in the seeds of annual medics, there have been few studies carried out in this area. In this research, the role of pod removal in growth and biochemical enzyme activities was examined in three annual medic species during drought stress and subsequent recovery. This study was carried out as a factorial experiment based(More)
