Linolenic acid (LN) in soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) seed mainly contributes to the undesirable odors and flavors commonly associated with poor oil quality. LN deposition at various stages of soybean seed development had not been reported by 2010. The objects of this study were (1) to identify and measure quantitative trait loci (QTL) underlying LN content(More)
Soybean fatty acids (FAs) are major sources of vegetable oil in the world. The FA composition of soybean is associated with the quality and nutritional value of its oil and food products. The polyunsaturated FAs, particularly linolenic acid (LN), are prone to oxidation by lipoxygenase isozymes and negatively affect the flavor and shelf-life of soybean(More)
Resistance of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) cultivars to populations of cyst nematode (SCN; Heterodera glycines I.) was complicated by the diversity of HG Types (biotypes), the multigenic nature of resistance and the temperature dependence of resistance to biotypes. The objective here was to identify QTL for broad-spectrum resistance to SCN and examine the(More)
Soybean is an important crop that provides valuable proteins and oils for human use. Because soybean growth and development is extremely sensitive to water deficit, quality and crop yields are severely impacted by drought stress. In the face of limited water resources, drought-responsive genes are therefore of interest. Identification and analysis of(More)
AIM The study aimed to: (i) evaluate the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary home-based medication review (HBMR) program in reducing hospital admissions and emergency department (ED) visits, cost of hospital admissions and length of stay (LOS); and (ii) determine the prevalence of drug-related problems (DRP) in elderly Singaporeans. METHODS A(More)
AIM The concept of a pharmacist/advanced practice nurse (APN)-led Rheumatology Monitoring Clinic (RMC) is a novel service in Singapore; we therefore conducted a questionnaire survey of patient experience. METHODS Patients attending the RMC were provided with a set of questionnaires. As a substudy, a separate questionnaire was given to the rheumatologists(More)
Background There is a relative paucity of information to characterise potential changes in medication regimen complexity and prevalence of prescribing of potentially inappropriate medications after hospitalisation, both in Australia and elsewhere. Objective To evaluate medication regimen complexity and the prevalence of potentially inappropriate medications(More)
