The Skeleton Eroding band disease on coral reefs of Aqaba, Red Sea
The occurrence and distribution of the coral disease Skeleton Eroding Band (SEB) has been studied at the Jordanian coast in the Gulf of Aqaba, the northernmost extension of the Red Sea, and afflicted coral genera and species were documented.
The degree of ground coverage by arable crops as a help in estimating the amount of spray solution intercepted by the plants
For typical pesticide spray-application scenarios, estimates of the fractions of spray liquid intercepted by the plants are presented for various field crops, depending on the crop growth stage.
Elucidating the Distribution of Plant Metabolites from Native Tissues with Laser Desorption Low-Temperature Plasma Mass Spectrometry Imaging.
The modular design of the laser desorption (LD)-LTP MSI platform, which is mainly assembled from commercial and 3D-printed components, facilitates its adoption by other research groups and enables fast imaging measurements.
Postharvest insect resistance in maize
It is demonstrated that the comprehension of resistance mechanisms has been fundamental for the development of new productive and resistant varieties, representing a sustainable alternative for developing countries.
Trichoderma atroviride from Predator to Prey: Role of the Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Tmk3 in Fungal Chemical Defense against Fungivory by Drosophila melanogaster Larvae
It is found that the production of specific groups of secondary metabolites increases in response to MI but is reduced after fungivory by Drosophila melanogaster larvae, and Activation of secondary metabolite production appears to depend on the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) Tmk3.
A New Intermediate in the Mineralization of 3,4-Dichloroaniline by the White Rot FungusPhanerochaete chrysosporium
High mineralization is now shown to occur when a fermentation temperature of 37° and gassing with oxygen are used, and the formation of conjugate intermediates is proposed to facilitate mineralization because the sensitive amino group of DCA needs protection so that ring cleavage rather than oligomerization can occur.
Mass spectrometry imaging of thin-layer chromatography plates using laser desorption/low-temperature plasma ionisation.
The separation of methylxanthines from coffee, tea and cocoa preparations by TLC, with subsequent mass spectrometry imaging (MSI), and the possibility of direct mass fragmentation studies and quantification are demonstrated.
Effects of Water Availability in the Soil on Tropane Alkaloid Production in Cultivated Datura stramonium
The results show that soil water availability is an effective method for maximizing the production of specific tropane alkaloids for industrial applications.
Low-temperature plasma (LTP) jets for mass spectrometry (MS): Ion processes, instrumental set-ups, and application examples
Abstract Low temperature plasma (LTP) jets enable the ambient ionization and desorption of molecules from solid, liquid, and gaseous materials. Employed in ambient ionization mass spectrometry
Low viscosity histidine‐tryptophan‐ketoglutarate graft flush improves subsequent extended cold storage in University of Wisconsin solution in an extracorporeal rat liver perfusion and rat liver
Choosing low‐viscosity HTK solution for the initial organ flush may represent a feasible improvement in liver preservation, which also further reduces the required amount of UW solution.
