UNLABELLED • PREMISE OF THE STUDY The potassium cation (K(+)), one of the most abundant cations in cells, improves plant tolerance to various abiotic stresses. Alligatorweed (Alternanthera philoxeroides) is well known for its strong capacity to accumulate K(+) The distinctive K(+) accumulation capability of alligatorweed is linked to a high-affinity K(+)(More)
Functional identification of a relatively lower affinity ammonium transporter, OsAMT1;1, which is a proton-independent feedback regulated ammonium transporter in rice. Rice genome contains at least 12 ammonium transporters, though their functionality has not been clearly resolved. Here, we demonstrate the functional properties of OsAMT1;1 applying(More)
The American Cancer Society (ACS) and Coalition of Cancer Cooperative Groups (CCCG) provide a clinical trial (CT) information/matching/eligibility service (Clinical Trials Matching Service [CTMS]). Patients' demographic and clinical data, enrollment status, and self-reported barriers to CT participation were analyzed to assess enrollment rates and(More)
OBJECTIVE Athlete screening tools combine measures of physical performance and morphometric parameters unique to each sport. Given the increasing competitiveness of dancesport, we designed the present quasi-experimental study to analyze the relationship between body height and motor coordination in college students. METHODS Six hundred eighty-six students(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the difference in the clinical efficacy on depression with chronic pain between the simple medication of selective serotonin uptake inhibition antidepressants (SSRIs) and the combined therapy of acupuncture and SSRIs. METHODS Ninety cases of depression were randomized into an acupuncture + medication group (combined therapy of(More)
A GORK homologue K + channel from the ancient desert shrub Ammopiptanthus mongolicus (Maxim.) Cheng f. shows the functional conservation of the GORK channels among plant species. Guard cell K+ release through the outward potassium channels eventually enables the closure of stomata which consequently prevents plant water loss from severe transpiration. Early(More)
BACKGROUND The microbial β-mannanases have been increasingly exploited for bioconversion of biomass materials and various potential industrial applications, such as bleaching of softwood pulps, scouring and desizing, food and feed additive, and oil and textile industries. In this paper, a β-mannanase was characterization from the bacteria, Bacillus(More)
