Natural variance in salt tolerance and induction of starch accumulation in duckweeds
AbstractMain conclusionTen of 34 tested duckweed clones showed relatively higher salt tolerance. Salinity stress induced high level of starch accumulation in these clones, making them potentialExpand

Phytotoxicity of cobalt ions on the duckweed Lemna minor - Morphology, ion uptake, and starch accumulation.
Cobalt (Co2+) inhibits vegetative growth of Lemna minor gradually from 1 μM to 100 μM. Fronds accumulated up to 21 mg Co2+ g(-1) dry weight at 10 μM external Co2+ indicating hyperaccumulation.Expand

Nutritional value of duckweeds (Lemnaceae) as human food.
Duckweeds have been consumed as human food since long. Species of the duckweed genera, Spirodela, Landoltia, Lemna, Wolffiella and Wolffia were analysed for protein, fat, and starch contents as wellExpand

Development associated profiling of chitinase and microRNA of Helicoverpa armigera identified chitinase repressive microRNA
Expression of chitinase is developmentally regulated in insects in consonance with their molting process. During the larval-larval metamorphosis in Helicoverpa armigera, chitinase gene expressionExpand

Destruxin from Metarhizium anisopliae induces oxidative stress effecting larval mortality of the polyphagous pest Spodoptera litura
Nine-day-old Spodoptera litura (Fab.) larvae were treated with crude destruxin (dtx) extracted from a high-virulent (M-19) and a low-virulent (M-10) isolate of the entomopathogenic fungus,Expand
