Controlling crop disease contributes to both food security and climate change mitigation
Global food security is threatened by crop diseases that account for average yield losses of 16 per cent, with the greatest losses experienced by subsistence farmers in the developing world. Climate change is exacerbating ...
The effect of sampling time on blood lactate concentration ([Bla]) in trained rowers
Purpose : To compare blood lactate concentration ([Bla]) at 15 s and 45 s during the 1-min rest period between each stage of an incremental test in rowers and to establish the validity of using interchangeable sampling ...
Determining frequencies of avirulent alleles in airborne inoculum of Leptosphaeria maculans using molecular assays
Control of blackleg (phoma stem canker) disease relies on crop management, fungicides and breeding for disease resistance. Proteins encoded by these resistance genes recognize avirulence (Avr) gene products in the fungus ...
Aspirin induces apoptosis in mesenchymal stem cells requiring Wnt/beta-catenin pathway
Background and Objectives: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are multipotent progenitor cells that are have found use in regenerative medicine. We have previously observed that aspirin, a widely used anti-inflammatory drug, ...
