Arabidopsis thaliana has eight genes encoding members of the type 1(B) heavy metal-transporting subfamily of the P-type ATPases. Three of these transporters, HMA2, HMA3, and HMA4, are closely related to each other and are most similar in sequence to the divalent heavy metal cation transporters of prokaryotes. To determine the function of these transporters(More)
In the study, we investigated how exogenous H2S (hydrogen sulfide) influenced streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic myocardial injury through cardiac mitochondrial protection and nitric oxide (NO) synthesis in intact rat hearts and primary neonatal rat cardiomyocytes. Diabetes was induced by STZ (50 mg/kg) and the daily administration of 100 μM NaHS (sodium(More)

In the present study, photosynthetic responses induced by cadmium stress in chlorophyll biosynthesis, photochemical activities, the stability of thylakoid membranes chlorophyll-protein complexes and the chloroplast ultrastructure of the cereal crop Oryza sativa L. were characterized. Cadmium inhibited the biosynthesis of chlorophyll by interfering with(More)
We show that the existence of a principal eigenvalue of a linear differential operator claimed in [4] does not always hold; hence, the proof of the stability and uniqueness of positive steady-state solution in [4] are not correct. For the linearized operator (φ ∈ X = {v ∈ C 2 [−1, 1] : v(±1) = 0}) L[φ] = φ (x) + λφ(x) − λφ(x) 1 −1 f (x, y)u(y)dy − λu(x) 1(More)
In this paper, we consider a dynamical model of population biology which is of the classical Fisher type, but the competition interaction between individuals is nonlocal. The existence, uniqueness, and stability of the steady state solution of the nonlocal problem on a bounded interval with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions are studied.
