Desiccation tolerance of seeds is positively correlated with raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFOs). However, RFOs' role in desiccation tolerance is still a matter of controversy. The aim of this work was to monitor the accumulation of RFO during acquisition of desiccation tolerance in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.). Rapeseeds become desiccation tolerant at(More)
The detection of hydroxyl radicals (OH•) is typically accomplished by using reactive probe molecules, but prior studies have not thoroughly investigated the suitability of these probes for use in electrochemical advanced oxidation processes (EAOPs), due to the neglect of alternative reaction mechanisms. In this study, we investigated the suitability of four(More)
Blastocystis is a unicellular but polymorphic protozoan parasite causing digestive diseases in humans. Autophagy, a self-degradation process, is only recently found in Blastocystis. Identifying and enumerating autophagic Blastocystis cells using fluorescent microscopy are important in biology. Doing this manually is laborious and error-prone. This paper(More)
This research focused on the synthesis, characterization, and performance testing of a novel Magnéli phase (TinO2n-1), n = 4 to 6, reactive electrochemical membrane (REM) for water treatment. The REMs were synthesized from tubular asymmetric TiO2 ultrafiltration membranes, and optimal reactivity was achieved for REMs composed of high purity Ti4O7. Probe(More)
