Potassium: A Vital Regulator of Plant Responses and Tolerance to Abiotic Stresses
In this review, the recent literature on the biological functions of K, its uptake, its translocation, and its role in plant abiotic stress tolerance are summarized. Expand
Experimental study on condensation heat transfer and pressure drop in horizontal smooth tube for R1234ze(E), R32 and R410A
Abstract Experimental condensation heat transfer and pressure drop of R1234ze(E), trans-1, 3, 3, 3-tetrafluoropropene (trans-CHF CHCF 3 ) in a horizontal smooth tube are measured and compared withExpand
Heat transfer during evaporation of R1234ze(E), R32, R410A and a mixture of R1234ze(E) and R32 inside a horizontal smooth tube
Abstract This experimental study measured and compared the heat transfer coefficients during in-tube evaporation of R1234ze(E), R32, the nearly azeotropic HFC refrigerant blend R410A and a zeotropicExpand
Clinical value of Tubex and Typhidot rapid diagnostic tests for typhoid fever in an urban community clinic in Bangladesh.
The value of Tubex and Typhidot tests for typhoid fever diagnosis in a community clinic in urban Bangladesh is low, and it is concluded that the value of these tests is low. Expand
Changes in Biochemical Characteristics and Activities of Ripening Associated Enzymes in Mango Fruit during the Storage at Different Temperatures
The results indicated that increase in storage temperature and time correlated with changes in biochemical parameters and activities of glycosidases suggested the suppression of β-galactosidase and β-hexosaminidase might enhance the shelf life of mango fruits. Expand
Molecular characterization of plant acidic alpha-mannosidase, a member of glycosylhydrolase family 38, involved in the turnover of N-glycans during tomato fruit ripening.
A molecular 3D modelling shows that catalytically important residues of animal lysosomal α-mannosidase could be superimposed on those of tomato α-mannsidase, suggesting that active site conformation is highly conserved between plant acidic α- Mannsidase and animal l Lysosomalα-mannOSidase. Expand
α-Mannosidase Involved in Turnover of Plant Complex Type N-Glycans in Tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum) Fruits
The purified and characterized an α-mannosidase to homogeneity from mature red tomato fruits showed optimum activity at about pH 6 and at 40 °C, and the activity was completely inhibited by both swainsonine and 1-deoxy-mannojirimycin. Expand
Molecular identification and characterization of an acidic peptide:N-glycanase from tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum) fruits.
The phylogenetic analysis reveals that the plant acidic PNGase is completely different from the ubiquitous cytosolic PNGase and is involved in a different de-N-glycosylation mechanism associated with plant growth and development. Expand
Heterologous, Expression, and Characterization of Thermostable Glucoamylase Derived from Aspergillus flavus NSH9 in Pichia pastoris
This novel thermostable glucoamylase cDNA without starch binding domain (SBD) of Aspergillus flavus NSH9 was successfully identified, isolated, and overexpressed in Pichia pastoris GS115 and has the potential for use and application in the saccharification steps, due to its thermostability, in the starch processing industries.

Characterization and expression in Pichia pastoris of a raw starch degrading glucoamylase (GA2) derived from Aspergillus flavus NSH9.
A pH and thermostable glucoamylase encoding gene having starch-binding domain (SBD) from Aspergillus flavus NSH9 was successfully identified, isolated, and expressed in Pichia pastoris GS115 to produce recombinant glu CoA2, an excellent candidate for application in industrial starch processing.
