In this investigation we analyzed in detail the consequences of water deficit during the first 4 days of wheat development, focusing on root growth as affected by eventual changes in cell cycle regulation and oxidative processes. Root elongation decreased under water restriction in correlation with the intensity of this limitation, but the total number of(More)
In shaded wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) leaves, the suppression of blue radiation (BR) triggers senescence. This phenomenon is correlated to an increase in oxidative stress symptoms and a decrease of catalase (CAT) activity, among other traits. Previous data suggest that the radiation signal transduction pathway may involve changes in Ca2+ and H2O2(More)

Thirty five patients with acute Chagas' disease who demonstrated parasitaemia at the time of the investigation were submitted to a detailed electromyographical study. With their muscles at rest, 12 patients showed fibrillation potentials and/or positive sharp waves. On volitional contraction, 7 had short duration motor unit potentials (MUPs) and low(More)
