Deacclimation and reacclimation of cold-hardy plants: Current understanding and emerging concepts
The abilities of cold-hardy plants to resist deacclimation during transient warm spells and to reacclimate when cold temperatures return are significant for winter survival. Yet compared to the… Expand
Efficacy of salmeterol xinafoate in the treatment of COPD.
STUDY OBJECTIVES To examine and compare the efficacy and safety of salmeterol xinafoate, a long-acting inhaled beta2-adrenergic agonist, with inhaled ipratropium bromide and inhaled placebo in… Expand
Cold Acclimation in Genetically Related (Sibling) Deciduous and Evergreen Peach (Prunus persica [L.] Batsch): I. Seasonal Changes in Cold Hardiness and Polypeptides of Bark and Xylem Tissues.
Seasonal patterns of proteins and of cold hardiness were characterized in bark and xylem tissues of genetically related (sibling) deciduous and evergreen peach (Prunus persica [L.] Batsch). In… Expand

A rapid assay to determine antifungal activity in plant extracts and essential oils is described. Wells in microtiter plates were loaded with Botrytis cinerea spores and plant extracts or essential… Expand
Characteristics and transferability of new apple EST-derived SSRs to other Rosaceae species
Genic microsatellites or simple sequence repeat markers derived from expressed sequence tags (ESTs), referred to as EST–SSRs, are inexpensive to develop, represent transcribed genes, and often have… Expand
Observations of Ice Nucleation and Propagation in Plants Using Infrared Video Thermography
We evaluated the use of infrared (IR) video thermography to observe directly ice nucleation and propagation in plants. An imaging radiometer with an HgCdTe long-wave (8–12 [mu]m) detector was… Expand
Relationship between quality of life and clinical status in asthma: a factor analysis

Many studies have shown that correlation between clinical asthma status and asthma-specific quality of life is only weak to moderate. However, this relationship has never been explored to determine… Expand
Improved Control of Apple and Citrus Fruit Decay with a Combination of Candida saitoana and 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose.
A combination of Candida saitoana with 0.2% 2-deoxy-D-glucose to control decay of apple, lemon, and orange fruit was evaluated. Growth of C. saitoana in vitro was reduced by 2-deoxy-D-glucose;… Expand
Cold Acclimation in Genetically Related (Sibling) Deciduous and Evergreen Peach (Prunus persica [L.] Batsch) (II. A 60-Kilodalton Bark Protein in Cold-Acclimated Tissues of Peach Is Heat Stable and…
In several plant species, certain cold-regulated proteins share unique properties. These proteins are (a) heat stable and (b) hydrophilic and are related to the Group 2 late embryogenesis abundant or… Expand
Adaptive mechanisms of freeze avoidance in plants: A brief update
Abstract Freeze avoidance has evolved in plants in response to selection pressures brought about by exposure to freezing temperatures. It is a multifaceted adaptive mechanism with many attributes.… Expand
