Expression of HpaGxoo, a bacterial type-III effector protein, in transgenic plants induces disease resistance. Resistance also can be elicited by biocontrol bacteria. We studied effects of the biocontrolBacillus subtilis strain B-916 on the rice variety R109 and the thehpaG xoo -expressing rice line HER1. Colonisation of roots by B-916 caused 12.5±1.3% and(More)
In this study, we report a novel method to synthesize core-shell structured Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticles (NPs) covalently functionalized with iminodiacetic acid (IDA) via click chemistry between the azide and alkyne groups and charged with Cu(2+). Firstly, the Fe(3)O(4)@SiO(2) NPs were obtained using tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) to form a silica shell on the surface(More)
The semiconductor heterojunction has been an effective architecture to enhance photocatalytic activity by promoting photogenerated charge separation. Here, graphitic carbon nitride (CN) and B-modified graphitic carbon nitride (CNB) composite semiconductors were fabricated by a facile calcination process using cheap, sustainable, and easily available sodium(More)
Qibao Meiran Wan is a Chinese herbal product sold as a therapy for tonifying the liver and kidney, dizziness, premature graying of hair, backache, constipation, and night sweats. It is widely available in Chinese pharmacies and drugstores and is sold without prescription. We describe a case of acute liver injury in a 26-year-old Chinese man who developed(More)
Incorporation of aromatic motifs into the nanosized shells of hollow carbon nitride nanospheres has been reported to develop functional photosynthetic structures for solar energy application. This modification results in an extended π-conjugation system, red-shift of the optical absorption, and an improved charge separation in the shell, while still(More)
The uniform core-shell nanostructured magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were synthesized using antibiotic nafcillin as a template. In this protocol, the magnetite nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by the solvothermal reaction firstly. Subsequently, the vinyl groups were grated onto silica-modified Fe3O4 surface by(More)
