Late-embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins have been reported to be closely correlated with the acquisition of desiccation tolerance during seed development and response of plant to drought, salinity, and freezing, etc. In this study, a LEA gene, CarLEA4 (GenBank accession no. GU247511), was isolated from chickpea based on a cDNA library constructed with(More)
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is an important pulse crop grown mainly in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world. Due to its taxonomic proximity with the model legume Medicago truncatula and its ability to grow in arid soil, chickpea has its unique advantage to understand how plant responds to drought stress. In this study, an oligonucleotide microarray(More)
F-box protein family has been found to play important roles in plant development and abiotic stress responses via the ubiquitin pathway. In this study, an F-box gene CarF-box1 (for Cicer arietinum F-box gene 1, Genbank accession no. GU247510) was isolated based on a cDNA library constructed with chickpea seedling leaves treated by polyethylene glycol.(More)
The Richmyer-Meshkov instability of a three-dimensional (3D) SF_{6}-air single-mode interface with a minimum-surface feature is investigated experimentally. The interface produced by the soap film technique is subjected to a planar shock and the evolution of the shocked interface is captured by time-resolved schlieren photography. Different from the(More)
A electrocoagulation (EC)/peanut shell (PS) adsorption coupling technique was studied for the removal of malachite green (MG) in our present work. The addition of an appropriate PS dosage (5 g/L) resulted in remarkable increase in the removal efficiency of MG at lower current density and shorter operating time compared with the conventional EC process. The(More)
The removal of Acid Black 1 (AB1) and Basic Red 2 (BR2) from aqueous solutions via an electrocoagulation (EC)/Moringa oleifera seeds (MOS) adsorption coupling process by using aluminum and stainless steel electrode in a batch reactor is described in this study. The influences of the operational parameters, i.e. current density, MOS dosage, and dye initial(More)
Recent years have witnessed the rapid growth of text data, and thus the increasing importance of in-depth analysis of text data for various applications. Text data are often organized in a database with documents labeled by attributes like time and location. Different documents manifest different topics. The topics of the documents may change along the(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive pulmonary disease caused by harmful gases or particles. Recent studies have shown that 2% hydrogen or hydrogen water is effective in the treatment and prevention of a variety of diseases. This study investigated the beneficial effects and the possible mechanisms of different hydrogen(More)
The high energy input required for harvesting microalgae means that commercial production of microalgal biodiesel is economically unfeasible. In this study, we investigated the flocculation efficiency and synergistic mechanisms of novel coupled flocculants, AlCl3 and compound bioflocculants (CBF), to overcome this difficulty. AlCl3 flocculation was found to(More)
