The effects of sodium nitroprusside (SNP, a donor of NO) on cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu) toxicity in ryegrass seedlings (Lolium perenne L.) on plant growth, chlorophyll content, the accumulation of superoxide anion (O 2 ·− ), lipid peroxidation, and the activities of antioxidant enzymes were studied. Cd, Cu, and especially Cd+Cu caused serious chlorosis,(More)
The interactive effects of salicylic acid (SA) and nitric oxide (NO) on alleviating cadmium (Cd) toxicity in peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) were studied. Seedlings of two cultivars (Huayu 22 — a big seed type, and Xiaobaisha — a small seed type) were treated with 200 μM CdCl2 without or with 0.1 mM SA or 0.25 mM sodium nitroprusside (SNP, an NO donor).(More)
In the present investigation, the role of sodium nitroprusside (SNP, a donor of NO) in inducing salinity tolerance (100 mM NaCl) in cotton was studied. Salt stress reduced the values of photosynthetic attributes and total chlorophyll content and inhibited the activities of nitrate reductase. Furthermore, salt stress also induced oxidative stress as(More)
OBJECTIVE Islet-1 is an important transcription factor for cardiac development through mediating extensive interactions between DNA and proteins. The present study was to investigate the role of Islet-1 in regulating the expression of cardiac development-related transcription factors and mechanism. METHODS AND RESULTS The expression of Islet-1 and histone(More)
Limited information is available on the role of brassinosteroids (BRs) in response of plants to nutrient deficiency. To understand the functions of BRs in response to iron deficiency, we investigated the effect of 24-epibrassinolide (EBR) on activities of ferric-chelate reductase (FCR), H+-ATPase, Ca2+-ATPase, nitrate reductase (NR), antioxidant enzymes, Fe(More)
Hydroponics experiments were conducted to study the effects of sodium nitroprusside (SNP, a donor of NO) on lead toxicity in ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) seedlings. When the ryegrass seedlings were grown in a nutrient solution containing 500 μM Pb2+ for two weeks, the plant biomass as well as net photosynthetic rate, transpiration rate, chlorophyll and(More)
In this study, totally 54 selected polymorphic SSR loci of Chinese shrimp (Fenneropenaeus chinensis), in addition with the previous linkage map of AFLP and RAPD markers, were used in consolidated linkage maps that composed of SSR, AFLP and RAPD markers of female and male construction, respectively. The female linkage map contained 236 segregating markers,(More)
This study introduced a kind of new SNP genotyping strategy in genetic analysis of Chinese shrimp (Fenneropenaeus chinensis). Twenty SNP tetra-primer ARMA-PCR primer sets were validated and used to investigate the genetic structure of six selected families of marine shrimp F. chinensis. The effective number of alleles ranged from 1.127 to 1.993, with an(More)
The basic structure of MEMS millimeter-wave phase shifters was consisted of a coplanar waveguide (CPW) transmission line periodically loaded with several thin metallic membranes. A new method was developed to obtain lower-loss microwave coplanar waveguide (CPW) by means of forming porous silicon (PS) on low-resistivity silicon wafer. The CPW fabricated on(More)
Introduction Imbalance in cellular energetics has been suggested to be an important mechanism for organ failure in sepsis and septic shock. We hypothesized that such energy imbalance would either be caused by metabolic changes leading to decreased energy production or by increased energy consumption. Thus, we set out to investigate if mitochondrial(More)
