The effect of water stress on respiration and mitochondrial electron transport has been studied in soybean (Glycine max) leaves, using the oxygen-isotope-fractionation technique. Treatments with three levels of water stress were applied by irrigation to replace 100%, 50%, and 0% of daily water use by transpiration. The levels of water stress were(More)
The present study examined the temporal reliability of four quantitative measurements of operationally defined linguistic behaviors observed in a naturalistic setting. The measures of language production were computed using the Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts (SALT) software from two 20-minute language samples obtained 3 to 14 days apart for(More)
Control ranges for enzymes in uncultured chorionic villi were established, based on: (1) 21 of 22 enzymes (mainly lysosomal) in villi had similar properties to the enzyme in cultured fibroblasts; (2) isoenzyme patterns in villi were similar to those in fibroblasts for five lysosomal enzymes but different for aryl sulphatases; (3) control ranges were(More)
The goal of this investigation was to determine the effects of allelochemicals on plant respiration that thereby may be responsible for their role in growth inhibition. We have tested the effects of juglone, quercetin, cinnamic acid, andα-pinene on respiration rates, and electron partitioning through the cytochrome and alternative respiratory pathways, by(More)
• Philodendron bipinnatifidum inflorescences heat up to 42 °C and thermoregulate. We investigated whether they generate heat via the cytochrome oxidase pathway uncoupled by uncoupling proteins (pUCPs), or the alternative oxidase (AOX). • Contribution of AOX and pUCPs to heating in fertile (FM) and sterile (SM) male florets was determined using a combination(More)
Secondary forests cover large areas of the tropics and play an important role in the global carbon cycle. During secondary forest succession, simultaneous changes occur among stand structural attributes, soil properties, and species composition. Most studies classify tree species into categories based on their regeneration requirements. We use a(More)
In Ceropegia dichotoma, Crassula argentea, Esheveria colorata, Kalanchoë beharensis, Opuntia ficus-indica, Sansveria stuckyi and Opuntia inermis the carbon-isotope ratio (δ 13C) of tissues close to the epidermis is 2–4.3‰ more negative than those in the centre of the leaf or cladode. The greatest change in δ 13C value occurs between the epidermal layer and(More)
An extracted tooth model of endodontic irrigation, incorporating reproducible inoculation and irrigation procedures, was tested against Enterococcus faecalis using a variety of different irrigants in a Latin square methodology. ANOVA revealed no significant variations between the twelve teeth or experiments undertaken on different occasions; however,(More)
