The plant hormone jasmonic acid (JA) has a crucial role in defense responses against pathogens in rice. We recently reported that some volatile compounds accumulate in response to JA treatment, and that the monoterpene linalool plays an important role in JA-induced resistance to rice bacterial blight caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv oryzae (Xoo) in rice.

To evaluate two specular microscopy analysis methods across different endothelial cell densities (ECDs). Endothelial images of one eye from each of 45 patients were taken by using three different specular microscopes (three replicates each). To determine the consistency of the center-dot method, we compared SP-6000 and SP-2000P images. CME-530 and SP-6000(More)
To evaluate the inter-device agreement among the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT), iCare and Icare PRO rebound tonometers, non-contact tonometer (NCT), and Tonopen XL tonometer. Sixty healthy elderly subjects were enrolled. The intraocular pressure (IOP) in each subject’s right eye was measured thrice using each of the five tonometers. Intra-device(More)
Rice is one of the most important crops worldwide and is widely used as a model plant for molecular studies of monocotyledonous species. The plant hormone jasmonic acid (JA) is involved in rice-pathogen interactions. In addition, volatile compounds, including terpenes, whose production is induced by JA, are known to be involved in the rice defense system.(More)
