Strategies I

  title={Strategies I},
  author={Richard W. Counts},

Photosynthetic organisms commonly develop the strategy to keep the reaction centre chlorophyll of 20 photosystem I, P700, oxidised for preventing the generation of reactive oxygen species in excess light 21 conditions. In photosynthesis of C 4 plants, CO 2 concentration is kept at higher levels around ribulose 22 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) by the cooperation of the mesophyll and bundle 23 sheath cells, which enables them to assimilate CO 2 at higher rates and to survive… 

Quantitative patterns between plant volatile emissions induced by biotic stresses and the degree of damage

Analysis of several case studies investigating the elicitation of emissions in response to chewing herbivores, aphids, rust fungi, powdery mildew, and Botrytis, suggests that induced emissions do respond to stress severity in dose-dependent manner and suggests that there are quantitative relationships between the biotic stress severity and induced volatile emissions.

ZmIAA5 regulates maize root growth and development by interacting with ZmARF5 under the specific binding of ZmTCP15/16/17

Background The auxin indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is a type of endogenous plant hormone with a low concentration in plants, but it plays an important role in their growth and development. The AUX/IAA

Critical roles for ‘housekeeping’ nucleases in Type III CRISPR-Cas immunity

It is demonstrated that RNase R and PNPase are required to maintain robust anti-plasmid immunity, particularly when targeted transcripts are sparse, which highlights the remarkable capacity of these systems to interface with diverse cellular pathways to ensure successful defense.

How RNA Interference Combat Viruses in Plants

RNA mediated silencing technology has now become the tool of choice for induction of virus resistance in plants and generation of potato virus Y (PVY) resistant potato and sugarcane mosaic virus (SCMV) resistant Sugarcane by CEMB has been quoted as an example.

Nutritive Evaluation of Brachiaria Decumbens, Three Tropical Browses and Their Combinations Using In Vitro Gas Production Technique

In vitro gas production technique was used to predict the nutritive values of Brachiaria decumbens, Moringa oleifera, Tephrosia candida and Cajanus cajan as well as to compare the supplementation

Review on Expansion of Bush Encroachment and Mechanism to Control its Severity in Rangeland Ecosystem

: Woody plant encroachment is considered a threat to rangelands because of the suppression of productivity of herbaceous plant species due to the increase of bush cover. Besides, its fragmenting

Effect of Transplanting Method and Gypsum Rate on Yield and Yield Contributing Characters of Boro Rice in Saline Zone of Bangladesh

Salinity intrusion causes problems in the coastal areas of Bangladesh. Climate change creates hazards like cyclone, sea level rise, and storm surge have been increasing the salinity problem in many

Novel approaches to prevent and treat infections involving staphylococcal biofilms

Due to the limitations of current antibiofilm strategies and the ability of bacteria to adapt continuously, it is important to consider combining multiple approaches to target biofilms successfully.

iversity patterns of Pampean stream vegetation at different spatial cales aría

We examined diversity patterns at different spatial scales by observing the changes in the slopes of Species–Area relationships (SAR) and Local–Regional (L–R) relationships. Stream vegetation was

Computational Chemistry as Voodoo Quantum Mechanics : Models, Parameterization, and Software

It is claimed that parameterization issues are a source of epistemic opacity and that this opacity is entangled in methods and software alike, and models and software must be addressed together to understand the epistemological tensions at stake.



Hill Reaction, Hydrogen Peroxide Scavenging, and Ascorbate Peroxidase Activity of Mesophyll and Bundle Sheath Chloroplasts of NADP-Malic Enzyme Type C(4) Species.

Both the mesophyll and bundle sheath chloroplasts were equally effective in light dependent scavenging of hydrogen peroxide and the results suggest that both chloroplast types have noncyclic electron transport and the enzymology to reduce hydrogenperoxide to water.

The genetic control of the enzymes of histidine biosynthesis in Salmonella typhimurium.

It has been found that the level of activity of the series of enzymes of Histidine biosynthesis can be raised about 15-fold over the wild-type level by growing a histidine-requiring mutant on formylhistidine as a source of histidine.

The TD50: a proposed general convention for the numerical description of the carcinogenic potency of chemicals in chronic-exposure animal experiments.

This paper consists of a brief discussion of the TD50, sufficient to make the general reader familiar with the properties of such an index, an appendix discussing methods for its estimation and certain conventions the authors have adopted for use in analyzing "nonstandard" experiments.

The importance of what we care about: Freedom of the will and the concept of a person

What philosophers have lately come to accept as analysis of the concept of a person is not actually analysis of that concept at all. Strawson, whose usage represents the current standard, identifies
