Cellular localization of NADH-dependent glutamate-synthase protein in vascular bundles of unexpanded leaf blades and young grains of rice plants
The spatial expression of these GOGAT proteins indicates distinct and non-overlapping roles in rice plants, as NADH-GOGAT could be involved in the synthesis of glutamate from the glutamine that is transported through the vascular system from roots and senescing tissues. Expand
Changes in the cellular localization of cytosolic glutamine synthetase protein in vascular bundles of rice leaves at various stages of development
When total GS extracts prepared from the 6th,10th, and the non-green 11th blades were subjected to anion-exchange chromatography, the activity of GS1 was clearly separated from that of chloroplastic GS, indicating that GS1 proteins detected in the vascular tissues were able to synthesize glutamine.

The Role of Seed Structure and Oxygen Responsiveness in Pre-Germination Flooding Tolerance of Soybean Cultivars
Describing the germination responses of soybean cultivars to pre-germination flooding and low oxygen conditions and identifying possible seed traits responsible for the tolerance revealed that the aleurone layer provides a barrier to water penetration during the first hour of inundation regardless of cultivar.

Roles of Auxin and Cytokinin in Soybean Pod Setting
The results indicate that the concentration of endogenous auxin and cytokinin in raceme changes in a different manner, and that cytokinins have a positive, and auxin a negative effect on pod setting when respective hormones are applied to racemes after the anthesis stage. Expand
Reduction-oxidation and catalytic properties of La1−xSrxCoO3
Catalytic oxidations of carbon monoxide, propane, and methanol have been investigated over perovskite-type mixed oxides (La1 − xSrxCoO3 − δ, x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, and 0.6) by the use of flow andExpand
The reducibility of La1-xSrxCoO3 (a perovskite-type mixed oxide) remarkably increased with the Sr2+ content, x, but the rate of re-oxidation of the reduced catalysts decreased with x. These trendsExpand
Catalytic Properties of Perovskite-type Mixed Oxides, La1−xSrxCoO3
The reactivity and related properties of oxygen both in the bulk and on the surface has been investigated for perovskite-type mixed oxides (La1−xSrxCoO3), in regard to the effects ofExpand
The influence of eating rhythm on diet-induced thermogenesis in young women.
It’s time to start thinking about how the authors can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. Expand
Growth Behavior of Sago Palm (Metroxylon sagu Rottb.) from Transplantation to Trunk Formation
The objectives are to clarify sago palm growth after transplantation and to assess the transition of stem growth from horizontal to vertical and the creeping growth stage, which is an important period because the standing positions of trunks are determined in the plant and in the sago palms garden.

Effect of Synthetic Cytokinin Application on Pod Setting of Individual Florets within Raceme in Soybean
The application of synthetic cytokinin to racemes of soybean genotype IX93-100 at 7 days after anthesis (DAA) enhanced pod-set percentage of the florets at the 5th position and above, suggesting that an increase in the amount of cytokinIn in individual flores might enhance the pod setting of theFlorets positioned at the middle or distal part within the raceme.
