Salicylic acid (SA) controls growth and stress responses in plants. It also induces drought tolerance in plants. In this paper, four wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars with different drought responses were treated with SA in three levels of drain (90, 60, 30% of maximum field capacity) to examine its interactive effects on drought responses and contents(More)
Endosymbioses between phototrophic algae and heterotrophic organisms are an important symbiotic association in that this association connects photo- and heterotrophic metabolism, and therefore, affects energy/matter pathways and cycling in the ecosystem. However, little is known about the early processes of evolution of an endosymbiotic association between(More)
The resistance to cadmium ions (Cd-resistance) and possible formation of cadmium-binding complexes were examined in eight different wild-type yeasts. Saccharomyces exiguus, Pichia farinosa, Torulaspora delbrueckii and Schizosaccharomyces octosporus exhibited partial Cd-resistance, as compared to the Cd-resistant strain 301N and the Cu-resistant but(More)
The Cu2+-tolerant yeast Yarrowia lipolytica accumulated Cu2+ until the late logarithmic phase. Thereafter, Cu2+ was temperature-dependently extruded into phosphate-limited culture medium containing high concentrations of heavy metal ions but not into 10 mM 2-(N-morpholino)ethane sulfonic acid (MES) buffer (pH 6.0). Peptone in the culture medium played an(More)
