Seeds of Cassia angustifolia Vahl. were subjected to 0, 20, 50, 100 mM NaCl for 7 d in order to study the effect of salt stress on growth parameters, endogenous Na+ and Cl− concentrations, antioxidant system, lipid peroxidation, hydrogen peroxide, and proline contents. Salinity affected all of the considered parameters and caused a great reduction in plant(More)
Effects of long-term sodium chloride salinity (100 and 200 mM NaCl; ECe = 6.85 and 12.3 dS m−1) were studied in tolerant (Kharchia 65, KRL 19) and susceptible (HD 2009, HD 2687) wheat genotypes. NaCl decreased relative water content (RWC), chlorophyll content (Chl), membrane stability index (MSI) and ascorbic acid (AA) content, and increased the contents of(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) and salicylic acid (SA) were sprayed on leaves of wheat genotypes C 306 and Hira at 25 and 40 d after sowing under moderate water stress (−0.8 MPa) imposed by adding PEG-6000 in nutrient solution. ABA and SA increased the activities of superoxide dismutase, ascorbate peroxidase, glutathione reductase, and catalase in comparison to(More)
Cassia auriculata L. seedlings were irradiated with ultraviolet B (UV-B) in an environment-control chamber. The two doses assayed (7.5 and 15.0 kJ m−2) induced oxidative damage with an increase in lipid peroxidation and hydrogen peroxide and a decrease in chlorophyll and total phenol contents. The ascorbate and dehydroascorbate content as well as the(More)
Laboratory-based experimentation is an increasingly popular method for conducting network research since it enables implementations of network systems and protocols to be evaluated. Most research conducted in lab-based environments requires the faithful reproduction of wide area network conditions. An important step toward satisfying this requirement is the(More)
OBJECTIVE Cytokines are the major mediators of joint damage in chronic arthritis. Data on synovial fluid (SF) concentration of Th17 cell-derived cytokine interleukin 17 (IL-17) in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) are sparse. We measured levels of IL-17 in SF specimens from children with enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA) and polyarticular(More)
The adsorption features of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with the magnetic properties of iron oxides have been combined in a composite to produce a magnetic adsorbent. Composites of MWCNT/nano-iron oxide were prepared, and were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) and Fourier transform infrared(More)
Alumina-coated multi-wall carbon nanotubes were synthesized and characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and FTIR. They were used as an adsorbent for the removal of lead ions from aqueous solutions in two modes, batch and fixed bed. In the batch mode, experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of contact time, agitation(More)
Introduction. Controversy continues over the appropriate timing of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy. We evaluated the feasibility and accuracy of SLN biopsy in LABC patients with cytology-proven axillary nodal metastasis who become clinically node-negative after neoadjuvant(More)
