Analyzing the assimilation rate (A) relative to the CO(2) concentration inside leaves (C(i)) has been a useful approach for investigating plant responses to various environments. Nevertheless, there are uncertainties in calculating C(i) when stomata close, restricting the application. Here, A-C(i) curves were traced in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)(More)
Appropriate fertilizer management practices are important to improve sugarcane quality. We have ever reported that KCl and K2SO4 had different effects on sugarcane quality and that only excessive KCl application decreased sucrose concentration in juice, indicating that Cl− is the key factor for the quality improvement. In this study, to see the individual(More)
Underwater high-voltage discharges (3.5 kV) resulting in 4.9 kJ shock waves (50-60 MPa) were studied at the laboratory scale as a Jatropha curcas L. seed disintegration method. Grinding and macerating in an excess of methanol (3.5:1) was advantageous because methanol acts both as a liquid carrier for the pressure shock waves and as a solvent that increases(More)
The suppressive effect of histamine H2-receptor antagonist, cimetidine, on gastric secretion was investigated in Ghosh-Schild rat. The study above was done in basal state under infusing normal saline (l ml/h) and stimulated state by histamine-di-chloride (3.5mg/kg-h), tetragastrin (50mcg/kg-h) or calcium chloride (4 mg/kg-h). Dose related increase of(More)
In the dicotyledonous plant Arabidopsis thaliana, the cotyledon chloroplast biogenesis factor AtCYO1 is crucial for the biogenesis of cotyledon chloroplasts. Arabidopsis mutants lacking AtCYO1 have pale cotyledons but develop normal mature leaves. In the monocotyledonous plant Oryza sativa, the gene OsCYO1 has high sequence identity to AtCYO1, but its(More)
