Adsorption and Movement of Carbofuran in Four Different Soils Varying in Physical and Chemical Properties
Laboratory studies were conducted to determine the adsorption and movement of carbofuran on four divergent textured Indian soils at a fixed volume fraction (fs = 0.1) of methanol/water mixtures using
The Influence of Organic Cosolvent (Methanol) on the Adsorption of Carbofuran on Three Different Types of Indian Soils
The adsorption of carbofuran on three different types of uncontaminated Indian soils (loam, silt clay loam, sandy loam) at various volume fractions (0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.0) of methanol (fS) has been
From rotten grapes to industrial exploitation: Komagataeibacter europaeus SGP37, a micro-factory for macroscale production of bacterial nanocellulose.
A novel, high yielding bacterial cell factory Komagataeibacter europaeus SGP37 is reported, isolated from rotten grapes, for the production of high quality and value added BNC and may offer a promising platform for industrial scale production of nanocelluloses.
Characterization of lactate dehydrogenase enzyme in seminal plasma of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica).
It was postulated that exogenous lactate being converted into pyruvate via LDH present in semen may be used by sperm mitochondria to generate ATP and NADH is being generated that may be useful for maintaining sperm mitochondrial membrane potential.
Microbial Tyrosinases: A Novel Enzyme, Structural Features, and Applications
Abstract Tyrosinase (E.C. is a member of type-3 copper protein family and is found in large amounts in the phylogenetic scale of living organisms. It catalyzes the hydroxylation of
Assessment of the importance of seed cutting, in-season cultivation, and the passage of row equipment in the spread of PVY° in potatoes
Grower concerns, coupled with recent reports, have suggested that potato virus Y° (PVY°) may be spread as the result of mechanical transmission following the cutting of infected tubers during seed
Polymerase chain reaction detection of greening bacterium (Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus) and Citrus mosaic virus in citrus tissues, by means of a simplified template-preparation protocol
Application of a simplified protocol for nucleic acid preparation for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection of greening bacterium and Citrus mosaic virus associated with citrus is described, which is simple, inexpensive, rapid, and applicable to large-scale surveys of citrus trees.
Adsorption Thermodynamics of Carbaryl onto Four Texturally Different Indian Soils
The adsorption thermodynamics of carbaryl onto four divergent textured Indian soils from methanol/water mixtures (fs = 0.1) have been investigated at 25 °C and 50 °C via adsorption isotherms, the
Effects of β-cyclodextrin on adsorption and desorption of carbofuran in soils of divergent texture
Laboratory studies were conducted to determine the adsorption/desorption equilibrium of carbofuran between four divergently textured soils and distilled water and an aqueous solution of 0.01 mol L−1
In vitro initiation of the acrosome reaction in the emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae)
The results emphasize the important role played by both PVM proteins and Ca2+ in the in vitro initiation of the acrosome reaction, which was significantly better with a combination of PVM protein and CaCl2.
