1. The metabolism of dexrazoxane (ICRF-187) and its optical isomer levrazoxane (ICRF-186) by the isolated rat hepatocyte was studied by hplc. 2. 4-Chlorobenzenesulphonamide, which is a strong inhibitor of dihydropyrimidine amidohydrolase (DHPase), caused 82% inhibition of the loss of dexrazoxane from the hepatocyte suspension. 3. Dexrazoxane was metabolized(More)
Sodium chloride-tolerant plantlets of Dendrocalamus strictus were regenerated successfully from NaCl-tolerant embryogenic callus via somatic embryogenesis. The selection of embryogenic callus tolerant to 100 mM NaCl was made by exposing the callus to increasing (0–200 mM) concentrations of NaCl in Murashige and Skoog medium having 3% (w/v) sucrose, 0.8%(More)
This study describes a protocol for the regeneration of complete plantlets of Terminalia arjuna from nodal explants of mature trees. Shoot multiplication from nodal explants was achieved by culturing on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing different concentrations of 6-benzyladenine (BA), thidiazuron or kinetin, or BA in combination with(More)
Hydroponic experiments were conducted to investigate an effect of exogenous application of proline (Pro; 25 µM) in alleviating arsenate (As(V); 5 and 25 µM) toxicity in Solanum melongena L. (eggplant) seedlings. Exposure of As(V) declined growth of eggplant, which was coincided with an enhanced accumulation of As. However, exogenous Pro application(More)
Thidiazuron (TDZ) stimulated shoot proliferation from different seedling explants (i.e., shoot, basal node, node and apical segment) of bamboo (Dendrocalamus strictus) when incorporated in half-strength Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium having 2% (w/v) sucrose. All the concentrations of TDZ (0.01 to 1.0 mg l−1) tried were effective in shoot proliferation.(More)
The present study investigates modulation in hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI) 25 μM] toxicity by sulphur (S; 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mM S as low (LS), medium (MS) and high sulphur (HS), respectively) in Solanum melongena (eggplant) seedlings. Biomass accumulation (fresh and dry weights), photosynthetic pigments, photosynthetic oxygen evolution and S content were(More)
Modern agriculture is facing significant challenges due to the high complexity of field conditions caused not only by currently ongoing global climatic change but also by stress combinations. Recent research is focusing on the molecular mechanisms controlling stress responses in plants. Many efforts have been made to uncover the complex but well-coordinated(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of photoinhibitory light induced changes under cadmium stress in electron transport activity, active oxygen species (AOS) generation, oxidative damage, photorespiration, enzymatic and non-enzymatic (low molecular weight) antioxidants in cyanobacterium, Aphanothece stagnina. The photosynthetic(More)
Mortierella isabellina ATCC 38063 is a zygomycete capable of hydroxylating fish-toxic resin acids which occur in certain pulp mill effluents to nontoxic metabolites. Addition of dehydroabietic acid (1) (80 mg/liter) to a freshly inoculated culture of M. isabellina in dextrose-yeast extract broth resulted in precursor disappearance in 28 to 30 h. During(More)
In recent era, some man-made and natural activities are responsible for causing salt stress that affects each component of environment. Among several components, plant is one of the essential components, and with the consequence of excess salts accumulation in the environment their metabolic activities may get affected. Plants exhibit hyper-osmotic stress(More)
