Cognitive and complex motor performance may be impaired by extended sleep deprivation, but objective data concerning the effects in residents of the sleep deprivation engendered by usual hospital on-call schedules are scant and conflicting. We studied three cohorts of surgical residents (N = 26) who were on call every other night. Each resident kept a sleep(More)
Recently, the truncated hemoglobin gene (trHb) was discovered in plant species, however, its role has not yet been determined. In this study, the gene expression of wheat trHb (TatrHb) was analyzed under various biotic and abiotic stresses. TatrHb transcript levels increased in NaCl-treated leaves and gibberellic acid (GA3)-treated roots. In addition,(More)
Brachypodium distachyon has been highlighted as a model monocot plant with small genome and short life cycle. Biofuels are being developed as renewable energy sources to replace fossil fuels. Bioethanol production is negatively correlated with lignin content. Here, Brachypodium was acutely or chronically irradiated at doses of 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 Gy.(More)
Brachypodium distachyon (Brachypodium) is a novel model plant for structural and functional genomic studies of Poaceae. Brachypodium has many favorable features, such as small size, small genome, short life cycle, and easy handling. Bioethanol, as renewable resource, has been widely studied as a replacement for fossil fuels. Lignin is involved with the(More)
