Osmotin and osmotin-like proteins are stress proteins belonging to the plant PR-5 group of proteins induced in several plant species in response to various types of biotic and abiotic stresses. We report here the overexpression of tobacco osmotin in transgenic mulberry plants under the control of a constitutive promoter (CaMV 35S) as well as a(More)
In general, stress caused by high light, high temperature and UV irradiation is unified and leads to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) having detrimental consequences for plants. Carotenoids are present in all photosynthetic plants as accessory pigments and have been implicated in protection against photooxidative damage. One major enzyme in(More)
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTMs) are ubiquitous and are being increasingly reported as human opportunistic infection. Cutaneous infection caused by mixed NTM is extremely rare. We encountered the case of a 46-year-old female, who presented with multiple discharging sinuses over the lower anterior abdominal wall (over a previous appendectomy scar) for the(More)
