Recent molecular studies show that genetic factors of salt tolerance in halophytes exist in glycophytes too, but they are not active. If these plants expose to low level salt stress these factors may become active and cause plants acclimation to higher salt stresses. So because of the importance of these findings in this research the effect of salt(More)
Response of antioxidative defense system to drought stress was studied in two cultivars of maize differing in sensitivity to drought. The six-days-old seedlings were transferred in to different concentrations of polyethyleneglycol (PEG) 6000 as drought stress treatment. After 24 h treatment with PEG 6000 an increase was observed in protective enzymes, MDA(More)
Responses of growth and germination to water stress induced by PEG 6000 and NaCl in two maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars 704 and 301 were studied. Water stress was generated by additions of PEG 6000 or sodium chloride to the root medium. Water potentials were: zero as control and -0.15, -0.49, -1.03 and -1.76 MPa as treatments. After 24 h treatment, the roots(More)
Drought stress is a major factor in reduce growth, development and production of plants. Stress was applied with polyethylene glycol (PEG) 6000 and water potentials were: zero (control),-0.15 (PEG 10%),-0.49 (PEG 20%),-1.03 (PEG 30%) and-1.76 (PEG40%) MPa. The solutes accumulation of two maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars-704 and 301-were determined after(More)
Statins are potent drugs, used as lipid-lowering agents in cardiovascular diseases. Hepatotoxicity is one of the serious adverse effects of statins, and the exact mechanism of hepatotoxicity is not yet clear. In this study, the cytotoxic effects of the most commonly used statins, that is, atorvastatin, lovastatin, and simvastatin toward isolated rat(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and complications associated with combined topical diltiazem cream and botulinum toxin A injection versus partial lateral internal sphincterotomy in chronic anal fissure. DESIGN This study is a parallel, randomized controlled trial (using the block randomization method). SETTING This(More)
Due to different human activities in the vicinities of Aras dam, various pollutants such as heavy metals are entered into the reservoir and thus polluting the aquatic ecosystem. As a result, this heavy metal is accumulated in the tissues of Astacus leptodoctylus, which is considered as one the abundant species of crayfish that has got important food values(More)
PURPOSE To compare the biocompatibility and histological aspects of cholecyst-derived extra cellular matrix (CDECM) graft, either alone or with application of autologous detrusor muscles small fragments (ADMSF) on rabbit bladder mucosa for bladder augmentation. METHODS The gallbladders were acellularized and evaluated for preserved acellular matrix(More)
Methimazole is used as an antithyroid drug to control the symptoms of hyperthyroidism and maintain patients in a euthyroid state. Administration of this drug is associated with agranulocytosis and hepatotoxicity, which are the two most significant adverse effects. The present investigation was conducted to study the protective role of taurine against(More)
Methimazole is an antithyroid drug widely used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Administration of this drug, often in a chronic manner, is associated with several adverse drug reactions in humans, including life-threatening hepatotoxicity. This study attempted to investigate the cytotoxic mechanism(s) of methimazole toward isolated rat hepatocytes. In(More)
