Thermotolerance of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum cv. ICMV-94133) and maize (Zea mays cv. Golden) was assessed at germination and vegetative stage. Final percentage of germinated seeds and rate of germination (number of days to 50 % germination) decreased due to high temperature (45 °C) similarly in the both species. In contrast, at the vegetative stage,(More)
Responses of a salt tolerant and a normal population of an oilseed crop,Eruca sativa Mill. were assessed after four weeks growth in sand culture salinized with 0 (control), 100, 200, or 300 mol m−3 NaCl. The salt tolerant plants produced significantly greater dry biomass than the normal population. The populations did not differ significantly in leaf(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of formulation and processing changes on the dissolution and bioavailability of propranolol hydrochloride tablets. Directly compressed blends of 6 kg (20,000 units) were prepared by mixing in a 16-qt V blender and tablets were compressed on an instrumented Manesty D3B tablet press. A half-factorial(More)
A selective and specific high performance liquid chromatography method was developed to quantitate glucosamine hydrochloride in raw materials, dosage forms and plasma. Reverse phase chromatography using pre-column derivatization with phenylisothiocyanate, and ultraviolet detection (lambda = 254 nm) was used to quantify the eluate. The mobile phase consisted(More)
Two newly developed salt-tolerant genotypes of spring wheat, S24 and S36 and their salt-tolerant parents, LU26S (from Pakistan) and Kharchia (from India) along with a salt-sensitive cv. Potohar were grown in full strength Hoagland's nutrient solution with 0 or 125 mM NaCl. At the onset of the booting stage third leaf from top was sampled for protein(More)
Response of two spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars, salt tolerant SARC-I and salt sensitive Potohar, to different concentrations of NaCl was examined under glasshouse conditions. Eighteen-day-old plants of both the lines grown in sand culture were irrigated with 0 (control), 80, 160 or 240 mM NaCl in full strength Hoagland's nutrient solution.(More)
Hydroponic experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of nitrogen forms on nitric oxide accumulation and glycinebetaine (GB) metabolism under osmotic stress (OS) simulated by the addition of polyethylene glycol (PEG-6000) to two maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars Zhengdan 958 (ZD958; drought-tolerant) and Jundan 20 (JD20; drought-sensitive). OS led to(More)
Agricultural production worldwide has been severely impacted by cold and freezing stresses. Plant capacity to acclimate to environmental conditions in their immediate vicinity largely control their survival, growth, and productivity. Molecular as well as biochemical mechanisms underpinning plant cold acclimation are very complex and interwoven. The(More)
The effect of two N-forms (NH4 + and NO3 −) and NaCl on pattern of accumulation of some essential inorganic nutrients was examined in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) cv. Hisun 33. Eight-day-old plants of were subjected for 21 d to Hoagland's nutrient solution containing 8 mM N as NH4 + or NO3 ·, and salinized with and addition of NaCl to the growth medium(More)
BACKGROUND Telemedicine is a promising but largely unproven technology for providing case management services to patients with chronic conditions who experience barriers to access to care or a high burden of illness. METHODS The authors conducted a randomized, controlled trial comparing telemedicine case management to usual care, with blinding of those(More)
