Amazing Numbers in Biology

"This publication turns into ragged with use. .. .A labour of affection and directory. awesome Numbers is healthier than googling, since it has a wise index and also you should not have to go through a complete load of irrelevance to get what you will want. it is also logically divided into such sections as 'Size', 'Blood' and 'Germination', and, simply if you happen to ever are looking to fee, all of the proof are referenced.

Hormones and Signaling

Hormones and Signaling specializes in the mechanisms of gene rules on the mobile point. It additionally describes the activities of hormones in modulating gene law and animal improvement. Key gains* Glococorticoid and mineralcorticoid signaling* Orphan nuclear receptors* Nuclear receptor coactivators* Cytokines and STAT signaling* Coordination of cAMP signaling occasions via PKA anchoring* G protein-coupled extracellular Ca2+ (Ca2+0)-sensing receptor (CaR)* Pancreatic islet improvement* Genetic research of androgen receptors in improvement and affliction* Antioprogestin regulable gene swap for induction of gene expression in vivo* Steroid receptor knockout version

Aboveground-Belowground Linkages: Biotic Interactions, Ecosystem Processes, and Global Change (Oxford Series in Ecology and Evolution)

Aboveground-Belowground Linkages offers the main updated and finished synthesis of modern advances in our knowing of the jobs that interactions among aboveground and belowground groups play in regulating the constitution and serve as of terrestrial ecosystems, and their responses to international swap.

Example text

Changes in the utilization pattern of primary substrate, viz. [U-C-14] acetate, (CO2)-C-14 and [U-C-14] saccharose, and the contents of C-14 fixation products in photosynthetic metabolites (sugars, amino acids, and organic acids) were determined in Fe-deficient Java citronella in relation to the essential oil accumulation. An overall decrease in photosynthetic efficiency of the Fe-deficient plants as evidenced by lower levels of incorporation into the sugar fraction and essential oil after (CO2)-C-14 had been supplied was observed.

1994). In vitro plants of C. citratus were established, starting from shoot apices derived from plants cultivated under field conditions. The effect of the immersion frequency (two, four, and six immersions per day) on the production of biomass in temporary immersion systems (TIS) of 1 L capacity was studied. 3) was obtained when six immersions per day were used. 2 g) were obtained with a frequency of four and six immersions per day, respectively. 97 cm) were greater in the treatment with four immersions per day.

2001). In Java citronella significant positive correlations were observed between fresh matter, citronellol content, dry and fresh matter yields, and total essential oil content (Omisra and Srivastava 1994). 5, and 50 mm) and methods (ridge and furrow, and broad bed and furrow method) of irrigation acid nitrogen levels (0, 200, and 400 kg N ha−1 yr−1) were studied on herb and oil yields of Java citronella, highest herb and oil yields were achieved with the application of 400 kg N, maintaining 25 mm depth of irrigation, while the content and quality of oil were not affected either by irrigation or nitrogen (Singh et al.
