Effects of ultraviolet-B radiation on crop growth, development, yield and leaf pigment concentration of tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum) under field conditions
Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum Gaertn.) crops were grown in sheltered field plots for two consecutive seasons under reduced, near-ambient and two supplemental levels of ultraviolet-BExpand
Characterization of melanin isolated from a dark septate endophyte (DSE), Exophiala pisciphila
Inhibition of melanin production was observed when colonies exposed to tricyclazole (1,8-dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN) melanin inhibitor), but not to kojic acid (3,4-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl radical-scavenging assay). Expand
Principal component analysis of intraspecific responses of tartary buckwheat to UV-B radiation under field conditions
The results suggest that the sensitivity of plants toUV-B radiation is not only associated with the ambient UV-B level in natural habitats but also with the relative growth rate and other factors. Expand
Subcellular distribution and chemical forms of cadmium in a dark septate endophyte (DSE), Exophiala pisciphila
It is concluded that Cd associated with cell walls and integrated with phosphate might be responsible for the tolerance of E. pisciphila to Cd. Expand
Effects of a dark septate endophyte (DSE) on growth, cadmium content, and physiology in maize under cadmium stress
The results indicated that the DSE’s ability to promote plant growth was related to a decrease on Cd content and the regulation on phytohormone balance and photosynthetic activities in maize leaves. Expand
Effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and dark septate endophytes on maize performance and root traits under a high cadmium stress
AMF and DSE altered the root traits that contributed to restricting Cd migration from roots to shoots of maize, and correlation analysis indicated that the Cd content in shoots was significantly positively correlated with SRL, SRA, SRB and SRT but negatively correlated with RTD. Expand
Identification and cloning of molecular markers for UV-B tolerant gene in wild sugarcane (Saccharum spontaneum L.).
The two DNA clones were determined to be linked to the UV-B tolerant and susceptible genes, and they can be used to develop molecular markers for the associated traits. Expand
[Effects of enhanced UV-B radiation on physiological metabolism, DNA and protein of crops: a review].
This review dealt with the effects of enhanced UV-B radiation on the physiological metabolism, DNA damage and protein content of crops. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi enhance antioxidant defense in the leaves and the retention of heavy metals in the roots of maize
The results suggested that AMF alleviated plant toxicity and that this effect was closely related to antioxidant activation in the maize leaves and increased retention of heavy metals in the roots. Expand
Response and intraspecific differences in nitrogen metabolism of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) under cadmium stress.
It is concluded that the nitrogen metabolism process played an important role for alfalfa to adapt cadmium stress, and the response of nitrogen metabolism to cad mium stress varied with different al falfa cultivars. Expand
