In Japan, infected patients accounted for 16% of the total population.

The mechanisms underlying magnesium (Mg) uptake by plant roots remain to be fully elucidated. In particular, there is little information about the effects of Mg deficiency on Mg uptake activity. A Mg uptake kinetic study is essential for better understanding the Mg uptake system. We performed a Mg uptake tracer experiment in rice plants using 28 Mg. Mg(More)
