The recent developments in virtualization change completely the panorama of the Hardware/OS deployment. New bottlenecks arise in the deployment of application stacks, where IT industry will spend most of the time to assure automation. VIRTU tool aims at managing, configuring and testing distributed ground applications of space systems on a virtualized(More)
SmART (Smart Application Reconfiguration Tool) is a framework for the automatic configuration of systems and applications. The tool implements an application configuration workflow that resorts to the similarities between configuration files (i.e., patterns such as parameters, comments and blocks) to allow a syntax independent manipulation and(More)
Casuarina glauca is a model actinorhizal plant species that establishes N2-fixing symbiosis with Frankia bacteria. This plant is highly resilient to extreme environments, being commonly found in saline zones. Gene expression studies by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) constitute a powerful tool to analyze the mechanisms underlying(More)
Casuarina glauca is an actinorhizal tree which establishes root-nodule symbiosis with N2-fixing Frankia bacteria. This plant is commonly found in saline zones and is widely used to remediate marginal soils and prevent desertification. The nature of its ability to survive in extreme environments and the extent of Frankia contribution to stress tolerance(More)
Casuarina glauca is an actinorhizal plant that establishes root-nodule symbiosis with N2-fixing bacteria of the genus Frankia. This plant is highly recalcitrant to extreme environmental conditions such as salinity and drought. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of salt stress on the symbiotic relationship between C. glauca and Frankia Thr,(More)
In the human erythrocyte, band 3 protein mediates nitric oxide (NO) translocation and its effects are strongly related to phosphorylated/dephosphorylated intracellular states. The metabolism of NO could change in the presence of acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Therefore, the present study was designed to assess the effect of conformational changes in AChE (via(More)
Casuarina glauca is a model actinorhizal plant characterized by its ability to establish symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing Frankia bacteria. This species is able to thrive under extreme salinity environments. C. glauca tolerance to high salinity has been previously associated with low tissue dehydration, osmotic adjustments, and high membrane integrity.(More)
Salinity is one of the most wide spread abiotic stresses affecting agricultural productivity, with an impact on more than 800 million hectares worldwide. A promising solution for the recovery of saline soils encompasses the use of actinorhizal plants, a group of perennial dicotyledonous angiosperms including species highly resilient to extreme environmental(More)
The actinorhizal tree Casuarina glauca tolerates extreme environmental conditions, such as high salinity. This species is also able to establish a root-nodule symbiosis with N2-fixing bacteria of the genus Frankia. Recent studies have shown that C. glauca tolerance to high salt concentrations is innate and linked to photosynthetic adjustments. In this study(More)
