The water mold Achlya ambisexualis reproduces asexually by the formation of zoospores produced in sporangia. The differentiation of vegetative hyphae to sporangia involves a series of morphologic and biochemical changes. Thus far, very little is known about the regulation of sporogenesis in this organism. Using DNA-DNA and DNA-RNA hybridizations, we investigated the presence of DNA sequences homologous to the yeast RAS gene in A. ambisexualis. A 1.8-kilobase (kb) HindIII fragment containing the complete RASsc1 gene specifically hybridized to BamHI, PstI, and SalI digested A. ambisexualis DNA. RNA blot analysis revealed the presence of a detectable level of RNA transcript (1.3 kb) that hybridizes to RASsc1, only in differentiating mycelia. In addition, the 35S-labeled polypeptide profile of sporulating hyphae differs from that of vegetative hyphae. The selective transcription of 1.3-kb RNA during sporangiogenesis indicates that it may play some significant role in the asexual sporulation in A. ...
LOS ANGELES, CA - 12/28/2015 (PRESS RELEASE JET) - "The regular and frequent wetting of the outside surfaces of wood and stucco-on-wood exterior building walls can easily cause internal wall mold growth therein, as illustrated in the mold pictures of sprinkler-caused toxic mold growth inside the exterior walls of a house in Victorville, California," cautions Professional Industrial Hygienist and Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip Fry.. The Victorville residence pictures were taken during the mold remediation of the home during the last week of 2015 by Certified Remediation Specialists from EnviroFry Upkeep Masters, LLC. The pictures can be viewed at www.southerncaliforniamoldinspectiontesting.com.. "Water that is sprayed by landscape sprinklers onto wood and stucco-on-wood exterior wall surfaces can leak or wick into the insides of those exterior walls. Leaked and wicked water builds up inside the wall cavities to drive significant, health-damaging toxic mold growth," explains Fry, who is ...
Sampling. Day-degree models using a developmental threshold of 4°C can be used to predict various phenological events such as egg hatch and immigration of alate aphids. Yellow traps, particularly water pan traps, are commonly used for population monitoring. Sequential sampling plans for green peach aphid on potato were developed by Hollingsworth and Gatsonis (1990). Sampling of aphid natural enemies in this crop was studied by Mack and Smilowitz (1980). Insecticides. Despite the numerous options potentially available, many producers are dependent on insecticides for suppression of green peach aphid abundance. Systemic insecticide applications are especially popular at planting time, most of which provide long-lasting protection against aphid population buildup during the critical and susceptible early stages of plant growth (Powell 1980) and some of which provide protection for 3 months (Palumbo and Kerns 1994). Green peach aphid is often a pest of cold-weather crops such as ...
Domestication has induced major genetic changes in crop plants to satisfy human needs and as a consequence of adaptation to agroecosystems. This adaptation might have affected root exudate composition, which can influence the interactions in the rhizosphere. Here, using two different soil types (sand, soil), we provide an original example of the impact of domestication and crop evolution on root exudate composition through metabolite profiling of root exudates for a panel of 10 wheat genotypes that correspond to the key steps in domestication of tetraploid wheat (wild emmer, emmer, durum wheat). Our data show that soil type can dramatically affect the composition of root exudates in the rhizosphere. Moreover, the composition of the rhizosphere metabolites is associated with differences among the genotypes of the wheat domestication groups, as seen by the high heritability of some of the metabolites. Overall, we show that domestication and breeding have had ...
Molecules exuded by plant roots are thought to act as signals to influence the ability of microbial strains to colonize the roots and to survive in the rhizosphere. Differential bacterial responses to signals from different plant species may mediate the selection of specific rhizosphere populations. Very little, however, is known about the effects of plant exudates on patterns of bacterial gene expression. Here, we have tested the concept that plant root exudates modulate expression of bacterial genes involved in establishing microbe-plant interactions. We have examined the influence on the Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA01 transcriptome of exudates from two varieties of sugarbeet that select for genetically distinct pseudomonad populations in the rhizosphere. The response to the two exudates showed only a partial ...
So what to do if you believe any of this may apply to you? For one thing, take the presence of dampness and mould growth in your home seriously, particularly if you do notice that you have niggling symptoms that seem to come and go depending on whether you are away from home. If you do, you should discuss this or any other possible diagnosis with your doctor, while making every effort to reduce your exposure to the dampness and mould growth.. Naturally you should make every effort to keep cleaning the mould away, and to ventilate as much as possible by using extractor fans and opening windows. However, you should always investigate the underlying causes of the dampness and mould growth thoroughly.. As a tenant you should not take no for an answer if your landlord is refusing to investigate or carry out repairs. If the dampness and mould growth is the result of disrepair, your landlord is obliged to fix it. Even if the problem turns out only to be condensation (caused for example by a badly ...

Many elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, small amounts of potassium, phosphorus and sulphur with the traces of magnesium and iron are required for the growth and other metabolic activities of the fungi. The carbon is always required in its organic form for growth.. When fungi are cultured in the laboratory on synthetic media, the necessary elements may be supplied in the following way: C is usually supplied in the form of a carbohydrate, such as glucose or maltose sucrose and soluble starch are utilized by many fungi also. N may be supplied in the form of NH4 salt or as amino acids.. Many fungi can utilize NO3 salts. Each fungus has its own specific requirements which may be known experimentally. Most fungi are able to synthesize the vitamins they need. However, several fungi may ...
A group of organisms formerly classified in the kingdom Fungi. Molecular studies have shown that fungi are more closely related to animals than plants, and both fungi and animals are now classified as opisthokonts. Fungi can either exist as single cells or make up a multicellular body called a mycelium, which consists of filaments known as hyphae. Most fungal cells are multinucleate and have cell walls composed chiefly of chitin. Fungi exist primarily in damp situations on land and, because of the absence of chlorophyll, are either parasites or saprotrophs on other organisms. The principal criteria used in classification are the nature of the spores produced and the presence or absence of cross walls within the hyphae (see Ascomycota; Basidiomycota; Deuteromycota; Zygomycota). See also lichens.. ...

Introduction to Molds Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Basic Mold Cleanup The key to mold control is moisture control. It is important to dry water damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth. If mold is a problem in your home, clean up the mold and get rid of the excess water or moisture. Fix leaky plumbing or other sources of water. Wash mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
Mold inspection from Water Damage Experts include:. Visual Inspection: A visual inspection is the initial step in identifying possible contamination problems. It will identify any visible water leaks or moisture stains on ceilings, walls, floors or under counters. The air conditioning and heating systems, the attic and crawl spaces under homes will receive a visual inspection as well. The use of equipment, such as a boroscope, to view spaces in ductwork or behind walls, moisture meters are used to help identify hidden sources of mold growth and the extent of the water damage, and thermal camera is used to identify the areas of extra risk of structural rot damage or hidden mold. Mold sampling will be recommended if there is any noticeable mold growth, musty odors, visible water damage or stains, poorly maintained HVAC systems or constriction defects. By combining a visual inspection with air, tape or swab sampling, the Inspection from Water Damage Experts of Stamford, CT can help identify the ...
Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) and Purple deadnettle (Lamium purpureum). Henbit is a common winter annual weed found in lawns. It branches freely from the base stems which are green or purple in color. The leaves are rounded, coarsely toothed, hairy and deeply veined. Flowers are in whorls in the axils of the upper leaves. Petals are purple and fused into a two-lipped tube.. Purple deadnettle is very similar in appearance. However, the upper leaves of deadnettle have petioles, whereas henbit does not. Deadnettle also has upper leaves that are distinctly red- or purple-tinged. The leaves are more triangular and less deeply-lobed. The flowers are lighter purple than those of henbit. Purple deadnettle and henbit both have distinctive four-sided (square) stems, and flower in early spring.. ...
Today, indoor mold and moisture, and their associated health effects, are a society-wide problem. The economic consequences of indoor mold and moisture are enormous. Their global dimension has been emphasized in several recent international publications, stressing that the most important means for avoiding adverse health effects is the prevention (or minimization) of persistent dampness and microbial growth on interior surfaces and in building structures. This book aims to describe the fundamentals of indoor mold growth as a prerequisite to tackle mold growth in the existing building stock as well as in future energy efficient buildings. It brings together different disciplinary points of view on indoor mold, ranging from physics and material science to microbiology and health sciences. The contents have been outlined according to three main issues: Fundamentals, particularly addressing the crucial roles of water and materials, Health, including a state-of-the-art description of the ...
There is one great group of fungi called Basidiomycetes, so named from having their stalked spores produced on basidia.. The Basidia-bearing fungi, or Basidiomycetes, are divided into three classes, as has been already stated.. There are many books on British fungi for students, but we want some popular work easy to understand, with no technical expressions.. We procured a list of works on fungi, and looked for some volume not too deep for our comprehension nor too costly for our purse.. We could go on prolonging our search, and describe many wonderful fungi, so easily found on a summer day, but as our object is to excite curiosity and interest and not fatigue the reader, we will here pause, and afterward arrange the descriptions of mushrooms in a separate section.. The peculiarity of growth first arises from a tendency of certain ...
Fungi have been an important source of many structurally diverse and biologically active secondary natural products. These secondary metabolites have found applications in pharmaceutical and agriculture industry. Fungi are estimated to be second only to insects in species diversity. It is estimated that there are at least 3.5 million species of fungi of which a less than 5% have so far been explored. Fungi are known to produce many secondary natural metabolites, however their role has still not been clearly understood. However it is possible that fungi which often thrive in competitive environments would experience evolutionary pressure to produce such metabolites for defensive or offensive functions. Our research focusses on isolation and structure elucidation of secondary metabolites from endophytic and ...

More. We live on a very moldy planet. Microscopic fungi blossom on every scrap of plant debris and are part of every crumb of soil. Molds can also grow in great profusion in our homes and workplaces, colonizing damp walls and filling the air with their spores. Recently, these indoor molds have acquired a very bad reputation. In a textbook illustration of a media frenzy, black and toxic molds have been spotlighted as an insidious threat to the modern way of life. Stories of homes overrun by fungi have heightened the publics awareness of indoor molds and the mere sight of a discolored shower curtain can be enough to provoke panic. Among the thousands of mold species, one fungus, ...

The phloem plays a crucial role in assimilate and nutrient transport, pathogen response, and plant growth and development. Yet, few species have yielded pure phloem exudate and, if proteins need to be analysed, those species may not have sequenced genomes, making identification difficult. The enrichment of Arabidopsis thaliana phloem exudate in amounts large enough to allow for metabolite and protein analysis is described. Using this method, it was possible to identify 65 proteins present in the Arabidopsis phloem exudate. The majority of these proteins could be grouped by response to pathogens, stress, or hormones, carbon metabolism, protein interaction, modification, and turnover, and transcription factors. It was also possible to detect 11 proteins that play a role in lipid/fatty acid metabolism (aspartic protease, putative 3-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, UDP-sulphoquinovose synthase/SQD1, lipase, PIG-P-like protein: phosphatidylinositol-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase), storage ...
Since mold is everywhere, it will only start growing when the spores settle on surfaces with excess moisture. The key to preventing mold growth is to control moisture. Maintaining an interior humidity level of between 30 to 50% will prevent mold growth. Sources of moisture include the following: flooding; backed-up sewers; leaky roofs and/or water leaks; humidifier which is not regularly cleaned and disinfected; damp basements or crawl spaces; house plants and their debris; steam from cooking and showers; wet clothes hung to dry indoors; inadequate air exchange; excessive humidity; and Condensation, which is especially a problem during the winter, on poorly insulated surfaces.. If you suspect mold growth, before the mold can be cleaned and removed, the sources of the moisture issues must be addressed first.. ...
Saprotrophic nutrition /sæprəˈtrɒfɪk, -proʊ-/ or lysotrophic nutrition is a process of chemoheterotrophic extracellular digestion involved in the processing of decayed organic matter. It occurs in saprotrophs and heterotrophs, and is most often associated with fungi (for example Mucor) and soil bacteria. Saprotrophic microscopic fungi are sometimes called saprobes; saprotrophic plants or bacterial flora are called saprophytes (sapro- + -phyte, "rotten material" + "plant"), though it is now believed that all plants previously thought to be saprotrophic are in fact parasites of microscopic fungi or other plants. The process is most often facilitated through the active transport of such materials through endocytosis within the internal mycelium and its constituent hyphae. Various word roots ...
Phelipanche Pomel. Phelipanche is a segregate of Orobanche and corresponds with the latters section Trionychon Wallr. Molecular studies have shown that species from this section represent a distinct lineage (Park & al. 2007a, 2007b, Carlón & al. 2008, Gevezova & al. 2012) and these findings corroborate with morphological data as well. Important synapomorphies seem to be the presence of bracteoles and tricolpate pollen (Piwowarczyk & al. 2015). Generic status for this group of species appears to be justified and these new insights have been followed in contemporary floras, e.g. Zázvorka (2000) and Tison & de Foucault (2014). Phelipanche counts ca. 20 species in the Old World, ranging from the Mediterranean area to Asia. In Belgium a single species is native, while an additional one has been recorded as an alien (Lambinon & Verloove 2012).. 1 Corolla small, 7-15 mm long, bluish with white throat. Stem nearly always branched. Parasite on Cannabis sativa, Brassica or Solanaceae species === ...
Our earlier work described that the roots of two maize cultivars, grown hydroponically, differentially responded to cadmium (Cd) stress by initiating changes in medium pH depending on their Cd tolerance. The current study investigated the root exudation, elemental contents and antioxidant behavior of the same maize cultivars (cv. 3062 (Cd-tolerant) and cv. 31P41 (Cd-sensitive)] under Cd stress. Plants were maintained in a rhizobox-like system carrying soil spiked with Cd concentrations of 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 mu mol/kg soil. The root and shoot Cd contents increased, while Mg, Ca and Fe contents mainly decreased at higher Cd levels, and preferentially in the sensitive cultivar. Interestingly, the K contents increased in roots of cv. 3062 at low Cd treatments. The Cd stress caused acidosis of the maize root exudates predominantly in cv. 3062. The concentration of various organic acids was significantly increased in the root exudates of cv. ...
Conclusions. The multiplex PCR reaction described above allows for the rapid and reliable identification of single seeds of small broomrape. This PCR-based assay detected DNA from all small broomrape samples collected in this study, including a sample with a distinct phenotype. The primers did not amplify DNA from other Orobanche species with similar host ranges found in Oregon. The primers also did not anneal to the DNA of red- and white clover, two hosts for small broomrape that are of agricultural significance.. Orobanche species have historically been extremely difficult to identify based on morphological characteristics (8,9,10). The plant phenotypes of the broomrapes are often dependent upon the host species being attacked. Also, although seed morphology can be used to identify broomrapes to species, these morphological characteristics are subject to change over time (10). Thus, researchers have turned to molecular methods, in particular the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) ...

Rhizosphere microorganisms play an important role in soil carbon flow, through turnover of root exudates, but there is little information on which organisms are actively involved or on the influence of environmental conditions on active communities. In this study, a 13CO2 pulse labelling field experiment was performed in an upland grassland soil, followed by RNA-stable isotope probing (SIP) analysis, to determine the effect of liming on the structure of the rhizosphere microbial community metabolizing root exudates. The lower limit of detection for SIP was determined in soil samples inoculated with a range of concentrations of 13C-labelled Pseudomonas fluorescens and was found to lie between 105 and 106 cells per gram of soil. The technique was capable of detecting microbial communities actively assimilating root exudates derived from recent photo-assimilate in the field. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) profiles of bacteria, ...
sorgoleone: Sorgoleone refers to a group of benzoquinones from Sorghum bicolor having 2-hydroxy and 5-methoxy substitutions and either a 15- or 17-carbon chain with one, two, or three double bonds at position 3; The name sorgoleone was first given to 5-methoxy-3-(8Z,11Z)-pentadeca-81114-trienylbenzene-1,2,4-triol but this is unstable and is easily oxidized to the quinone, sorgoleone-358, which is the major constituent of the root exudate; binds at PLASTOQUINONE site of PSII

The effect of defoliation and consecutive defoliation (condefoliation) of rye seedlings on the allocation patterns of biomass and hydroxamic acids (Hx) was evaluated five days after treatment. Growth of condefoliated seedlings was lower than that of defoliated and nondefoliated ones. Concentration of Hx decreased in shoots of condefoliated seedlings compared to nondefoliated ones, while concentration of Hx in root exudates increased. Allocation of Hx to roots and root exudates increased at the expense of allocation to the shoots in condefoliated seedlings. The ratio of Hx-aglucone to Hx-glucoside was higher in shoots of defoliated and condefoliated seedlings. The decrease in quantity of defense in shoots was accompanied by an increase in its quality, given that aglucones are more toxic than glucosides. The increase in concentration of Hx-an allelopathic compound also involved in mineral uptake by roots-in root exudates of condefoliated seedlings was ...

Isoflavonoid signal molecules from soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) seed and root exudate induce the transcription of nodulation (nod) genes in Bradyrhizobium japonicum. In this study, a new compound with symbiotic activity was isolated from soybean root exudate. The isolated 2,4,4-trihydroxychalcone (isoliquiritigenin) is characterized by its strong inducing activity for the nod genes of B. japonicum. These genes are already induced at concentrations 1 order of magnitude below those required of the previously described isoflavonoid inducers genistein and daidzein. Isoliquiritigenin is also a potent inducer of glyceollin resistance in B. japonicum, which renders this bacterium insensitive to potentially bactericidal concentrations of glyceollin, the phytoalexin of G. max. No chemotactic effect of isoliquiritigenin was observed. The highly efficient induction of nod genes and glyceollin resistance by isoliquiritigenin suggests the ecological significance of this compound, although it is not a ...
The chemical interaction between plants and bacteria in the root zone can lead to soil decontamination. Bacteria which degrade PAHs have been isolated from the rhizospheres of plant species with varied biological traits, however, it is not known what phytochemicals promote contaminant degradation. One monocot and two dicotyledon plants were grown in PAH-contaminated soil from a manufactured gas plant (MGP) site. A phytotoxicity assay confirmed greater soil decontamination in rhizospheres when compared to bulk soil controls. Bacteria were isolated from plant roots (rhizobacteria) and selected for growth on anthracene and chrysene on PAH-amended plates. Rhizosphere isolates metabolized 3- and 4-ring PAHs and PAH catabolic intermediates in liquid incubations. Aromatic root exudate compounds, namely flavonoids and simple phenols, were also substrates for ...
Phelipanche aegyptiaca parasitizes a wide range of plants, including important crops, and causes serious damage to their production. P. aegyptiaca develops a specialized intrusive organ called a haustorium that establishes connections to the hosts xylem and phloem. In parallel with the development of xylem vessels, the differentiation of phloem-conducting cells has been demonstrated by the translocation of symplasmic tracers from the host to the parasite. However, it is unclear yet whether haustorial phloem-conducting cells are sieve elements. In this study, we identified phloem-conducting cells in haustoria by the host-to-parasite translocation of green fluorescent protein (GFP) from AtSUC2pro::GFP tomato sieve tubes. Haustorial GFP-conducting cells contained nuclei but not callose-rich sieve plates, indicating that phloem-conducting cells in haustoria differ from conventional sieve elements. To ascertain why the nuclei were not degenerated, expression of the P. aegyptiaca homologs ...
Adults are omnivorous, often feeding on pollen (taking part in flower pollination) or plant exudates; cases of micropredation have also been registered. Most Notoxinae prefer sandy soils for laying eggs. Many species, particularly of Notoxus, are known to be canthariphilous and are attracted to cantharidin. The cantharidin is mostly obtained by males. In some groups, males bear secretory glands that concentrate the cantharidin in special canals or pits at the elytral apices, indicated as apical tubercles. Being highly poisonous, cantharidin is used by Notoxinae as a feeding deterrent against predators or acts as a kairomone for braconid wasps, endoparasites of Notoxus. Females take the cantharidin into their bodies when feeding upon the secretions of the males. Females also pass the cantharidin to the eggs and larvae and it is used for protection by them. ...
Previous research has shown that elevated CO2 reduces plant resistance against insects and enhances the water use efficiency of C3 plants, which improves the feeding efficiency of aphids. Although plant mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are known to regulate water relations and phytohormone-mediated resistance, little is known about the effect of elevated CO2 on MAPKs and the cascading effects on aphids. By using stably transformed Nicotiana attenuataplants silenced in MPK4, wound-induced protein kinase (WIPK), or salicylic acid-induced protein kinase (SIPK), we determined the functions of MAPKs in plant-aphid interactions and their responses to elevated CO2. The results showed that among all plant genotypes, inverted repeat MPK4 plants had the largest stomatal apertures, the lowest water content, the strongest jasmonic acid (JA)-dependent resistance, and the lowest aphid numbers, ...

Wingless adults and nymphs are usually pale yellow green including the cornicles (a pair of tubes near the tip of the abdomen) but may be pink. Adults reach 2 mm long. Aphids feed on leaves and excrete a sugary, sticky substance called
Mashed pumpkin is a vegetable dish made by cooking or macerating the skinless flesh (pulp) of pumpkins and then mashing, straining, grinding, or puréeing until the desired consistency is achieved. It is traditionally served as a side dish, although it has many uses in cooking and baking. The pumpkin is native to North and South America. It was widely cultivated and used for food throughout much of North America by Native Americans, and many tribes on the eastern coast of North America ate mashed pumpkin. Some Native Americans also spread mashed pumpkin over scrapes and cuts as a poultice. Mashed pumpkin was likely served at the 1621 "First Thanksgiving" celebration at Plymouth Colony in America, where members of the Wampanoag tribe celebrated an iconic harvest festival with the Pilgrims. English colonists in New England quickly adopted pumpkin as a food source, and "pumpkin sauce" (mashed pumpkin) was served at inns in New England as early as 1704. Mashed pumpkin was also added to various ...

Strigolactones, first discovered as germination stimulants for parasitic weeds [1], are carotenoid-derived phytohormones that play major roles in inhibiting lateral bud outgrowth and promoting plant-mycorrhizal symbiosis [2-4]. Furthermore, strigolactones are involved in the regulation of lateral and adventitious root development, root cell division [5, 6], secondary growth [7], and leaf senescence [8]. Recently, we discovered the strigolactone transporter Petunia axillaris PLEIOTROPIC DRUG RESISTANCE 1 (PaPDR1), which is required for efficient mycorrhizal colonization and inhibition of lateral bud outgrowth [9]. However, how strigolactones are transported through the plant remained unknown. Here we show that PaPDR1 exhibits a cell-type-specific asymmetric localization in different root tissues. In root tips, PaPDR1 is co-expressed with the strigolactone biosynthetic gene DAD1 (CCD8), and it is localized at the apical membrane of root hypodermal cells, presumably mediating ...
Pumpkin seeds are enjoyable year round. Not just at Halloween. Chewy and slightly sweet, pumpkin seeds have a nutty flavor. They are delicious and nutritious!. Did you know that you can enjoy pumpkin seeds in healthy sautéed vegetables, mixed with green salads, or ground and chopped into salad dressings and cereal? Some people even enjoy them ground and added to vegetable, turkey or beef burgers.. Another bonus is that, unlike other nuts and seeds, pumpkin seeds are not generally known to be an allergenic food. Nutritionally, pumpkin seeds function best as an antioxidant and mineral nutrient.. Pumpkin seeds contain a vast number of antioxidant phytonutrients and healthy phytosterols. Pumpkin seeds also provide a wealth of phosphorus, magnesium. Manganese and copper are also found in the seeds, as well as zinc and iron. Additionally, pumpkin seeds are protein-rich.. Beyond the primary benefits, pumpkin seeds have been shown to help in other ways, as evidence by tests conducted in animal ...
Phloem sap proteins from pumpkin were identified by LC-MS/MS, following two-dimensional separation, using either cation or anion exchange chromatography in combination with SDS-PAGE. Polyacrylamide gel fragments were then processed for MS analysis. Additional phloem sap-derived proteins obtained from independent data sets (PTB-binding, RNA-binding, and CmPP16-, CmoFTL2- and eIF-5A-interacting proteins) were also included in the total data set described herein. Phloem sap proteins in anion and cation exchange eluants were analyzed by LC-MS/MS. A combination of a proprietary cucurbit EST database and the NCBI non-redundant green plant database was used to analyze these phloem proteins by Mascot and X!Tandem search engines, and the results were compiled with Scaffold.. A total of 345 LC-MS/MS data sets were processed in which 84,931 MS/MS spectra were assigned to 8,859 unique peptides with a 95% probability. The identified peptides were then assigned to 1,209 consensi using rigid filtering ...

Purpose: : To present a system based on a generalized optimization scheme of image decompositions and classification to detect the presence of hard exudates in the macula of fundus images as means for automatic screening for potential clinically significant macular edema. This system can be extended to detect other bright and red lesions. Methods: : N=153 macula-centered digital fundus photographs were collected retrospectively from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. The presence of lesions such as exudates, drusen, and microaneurysms were marked by a certified ophthalmic medical technologist. N=35 images were graded as normal, N=79 images presented hard exudates in the macula, and N=39 images presented only other lesions such as microaneurysms, hemorrhages, and drusen. The normal cases also contained images with retinal sheen and foveal reflex. We applied a 3-step algorithm for exudate detection on these images. First, possible ...
Main conclusion Profiling of plant secondary metabolite allows to differentiate the different types of ecological interactions established between rice and bacteria. Rice responds to ecologically distinct bacteria by altering its content of flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives. Plants growth and physiology are strongly influenced by the biotic interactions that plants establish with soil bacterial populations. Plants are able to sense and to respond accordingly to ecologically distinct bacteria, by inducing defense pathways against pathogens to prevent parasitic interactions, and by stimulating the growth of root-associated beneficial or commensal bacteria through root exudation. Plant secondary metabolism is expected to play a major role in this control. However, secondary metabolite responses of a same ...
Hard exudates are largely made up of extracellular lipid which has leaked from abnormal retinal capillaries, hence there is often associated retinal oedema (which is not visible using direct ophthalmoscopy). The underlying problem is often apparent as the exudates will form a ring or circinate pattern around the leaking vessels (which may be seen as a cluster of microaneurysms).. Hard exudates are found principally in the macular region and as the lipids coalesce and extend into the central macula (fovea), vision can be severely compromised.. ...
7 February 2005. Grant Details Final Report. The genus Banksia is a uniquely Australian plant group. Banksias dominate the physiognomy and ecology of several Australian plant communities. Flowers and fruits of several species are successful export products. The physiology of nutrient uptake is of great importance for this genus, particularly since the soils on which Banksias occur are extremely low in nutrients. All Banksias possess proteoid (cluster) roots that exude a range of carboxylates into the rhizosphere. Carboxylates act to enhance the availability of nutrients, particularly phosphorus, but the efficiency of different carboxylates varies with soil type. We examined the hypothesis that Banksia species with different soil preferences differ in the amount and composition of rhizosphere carboxylates.. Our data show that, when grown in a standardised substrate, the 57 Banksia species studied exude roughly similar carboxylates into their rhizosphere, predominantly ...
Rhizobium spp. show chemotaxis to plant root exudates. A glycoprotein has been isolated from the root exudates of birdsfoot trefoil, Lotus corniculatus, which, at micromolar concentrations, attracts six strains of rhizobia. This glycoprotein has been given the trivial name trefoil chemotactin and contains approximately twice as much protein as carbohydrate. Gel filtration of trefoil chemotactin on a Bio-Gel A-1.5m column gave a molecular weight of approximately 60,000. Trefoil chemotactin represents a new class of chemoattractants for bacteria. ...
The activity of plant 9-lipoxygenases (LOXs) influences the outcome of Arabidopsis thaliana interaction with pathogen and insects. Evidence provided here indicates that in Arabidopsis, 9-LOXs facilitate infestation by Myzus persicae, commonly known as the green peach aphid (GPA), a sap-sucking insect, and infection by the fungal pathogen Fusarium graminearum. in comparison to the wild-type plant, lox5 mutants, which are deficient in a 9-lipoxygenase, GPA population was smaller and the insect spent less time feeding from sieve elements and xylem, thus resulting in reduced water content and fecundity of GPA. LOX5 expression is induced rapidly in roots of GPA-infested plants. This increase in LOX5 expression is paralleled by an increase in LOX5-synthesized oxylipins in the root and petiole exudates of GPA-infested plants. Micrografting experiments demonstrated that GPA population size was smaller on plants in ...

Two humic acids extracted from a volcanic soil (HA1) and a leonardite (HA2) were used to form insoluble complexes with iron metals. To simulate the rhizospheric processes that displace iron from complexes of humic molecules and solubilize the soil humeome, the insoluble iron-humates were treated with a solution of siderophore deferoxamine mesylate (DFOM) and a mixture of citric, oxalic, tartaric and ketoglutaric acids, at different concentrations and contact times. Results showed that the removal of iron from humic complexes varied depending on the concentration of the extractants and extraction times. At large concentration, the mixture of organic acids was generally a better extractant than the siderophore, probably because of their lower solution pH. However, at smaller concentrations, the extracting capacity of the DFOM solution and the mixture of organic acids was generally similar. Differences in iron extractability between the two iron-humates were attributed to both ...

For many decades, sunflower broomrape has been damaging crops in Europe. It appeared in 2009 in France since when more regions have become infested. As members of a project funded by Promosol, INRA scientists in Toulouse and their partners are exploring the interactions between sunflower and broomrape in order to improve management of the risk induced by this parasitic weed.
The hydrogen ion concentration in the lesions of experimental pneumococcus infection has been estimated directly by pH determinations on exudates from living animals. For indirect evidence of an increase in hydrogen ion concentration within the lesions, the difference in sugar content between exudate and blood from animals with pneumococcus infection has been measured.. With sanguinous exudate from the consolidated lungs of dogs with experimental pneumococcus pneumonia, the findings were not always consistent, but usually there was either direct or indirect evidence of increased hydrogen ion concentration. The physicochemical changes in exudate from animals treated with artificial pneumothorax showed no important differences from those in other specimens. In concurrence with Lords (1, 2) observation of increased acidity in pneumonia exudate obtained at autopsy, sugar concentrations, which are low in the blood, were markedly reduced in exudates from animals which had died of ...

Now, on to the filling. I adapted this pumpkin pie recipe from the one that Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco makes for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Its vegan, so instead of using eggs, they use arrowroot (which is a starchy type flour that helps bind ingredients together and kinda give it an egg-y consistency but without the egg-y taste). They also use molasses which gives the pumpkin pie an earthy chocolatey-ness to it. Seriously, it tastes so rich and creamy, you wouldnt know it was vegan. I wouldnt say it tastes like a typical pumpkin pie, because it comes out sort of pudding like and not as solid as traditional pumpkin pies. The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree which is basically just a can of pumpkin. Its too damn labor intensive to cut up an actual pumpkin, de-seed it, roast it and then blend it. I mean, unless youre feeling super motivated or something ...
Phosphorus, acquired in the form of phosphate (Pi), is one of the primary macronutrients for plants but is least available in the soil. Pi deficiency is a major factor limiting plant growth, development and reproduction. Plants have developed a complex signaling network to respond to Pi deficiency. The recent discovery of strigolactones, a new class of plant hormones, has led to an emerging signaling module illustrating the integrated control of Pi acquisition, plant-microbe symbiotic interactions and plant architecture. This review article focuses on the recent findings of plant responses and roles of strigolactones to Pi deficiency.

analyzed the content with high resolution LC-MS. Chemometric methods revealed 87 compounds that constitute a specific chemical pattern either qualitatively or quantitatively indicating copepod presence. The majority of the compounds were present in both female and male exudates, but nine compounds were mainly or exclusively present in female exudates and hence potential pheromone candidates. Copepodamide G, known to induce defensive responses in phytoplankton, was among the ten compounds of highest relative abundance in both male and female extracts. The presence of copepodamide G shows that the method can be used to capture and analyze chemical signals from living source organisms. We conclude that solid phase ...

Aluminum (Al) toxicity is one of the main factors limiting crop productivity in strongly acidic soils. Plant tolerance to Al toxicity has been widely studied even if the mechanisms involved in the plant response are yet not fully elucidated. White lupin is well known to release organic acids and flavonoids under nutrient deficiency, while less is known about its response to elevated Al concentrations. The aim of this work was therefore to shed light to the adaptive response of white lupin to Al toxicity, analysing the root exudate pattern. A pH buffer (MES) or inhibitor compounds were used in order to further investigate the mechanisms adopted by white lupin to release root exudates as response to Al toxicity. The results showed that not only organic acids but also phenolic compounds are involved in the response to elevated concentrations of Al together with the alkalinisation of the growth medium ...
Pumpkin stem. Light micrograph of a section through phloem sieve tubes in the stem of a pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) plant. Each sieve tube element consists of cytoplasm along the cell wall and a central vacuole, containing slime-bodies (light green), and no nucleus. The top sieve tubes shows the transverse layer of cellulose, which is perforated by holes (red), known as the sieve plate, through which the slime flows forming a plug (callus). The contents flow up and down taking substances such sucrose (sugar) down to the roots and upwards to the shoot. To left of the phloem is a companion cell full of cytoplasm (dark green) and a nucleus. Magnification: x37 when printed 10 centimetres wide. - Stock Image C019/7067

Lets not forget about the micronutrients that pumpkin offers, like copper, folate and magnesium. These are nutrients that we need in smaller amounts. Folate plays a role in energy metabolism and also contributes to the health of red blood cells, which help deliver oxygen to the working muscles. A deficiency in folate can lead to macrocytic anemia, where red blood cells dont divide normally. Macrocytic anemia often results in fatigue, since the improper dividing of red blood cells means there are fewer cells to deliver oxygen to muscle tissue. Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 reactions in the body, including muscle and nerve function, energy production and muscle contraction. One-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds gives you nearly half of your bodys daily magnesium needs.. Dont underestimate how these nutrients can improve your running. Fall is the perfect time to include pumpkin puree or pumpkin seeds in your meals and snacks. Add some pumpkin seeds to your yogurt, salads or trail mix, ...

Still, eating pumpkin isnt the only way to enjoy its natural benefits ...
Winter squash and pumpkin fruit sitting in the field face a daunting list of diseases and insects - not to mention possible passing hurricanes -- that could threaten fruit quality. Early harvest and careful storage is often preferable to leaving fruit in the field. This is especially true if you know that your pumpkins or squash are in fields that are infected with Phytophthora blight.. Since the pumpkin market lasts from Labor Day to Halloween, pumpkins may need to be held for several weeks before they can be marketed. When is it best to bring then in, and when to leave them in the field? If the vines are in good condition, the foliage can protect the fruit from sunscald. If foliage is going down from powdery mildew or downy mildew, this may help with ripening and make harvesting easier, but also increases the risk of sunscald or injury to pumpkin handles. There can be extra work involved in bringing fruit in early, especially for growers who normally have pick-your-own harvest, but we ...

By David Margolies. John Reese, professor of entomology, was an organizer of the Hemipteran-Plant Interactions Symposium at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 11-14. The symposium was an interdisciplinary conference designed to bring together entomologists and plant physiologists to foster a greater degree of understanding and collaboration among researchers who share an interest in the interactions between hemipteran feeding behavior, plant physiology and plant pathogens. More than 130 scientists from 19 countries attended the four-day meeting.. Reese was one of four researchers who served on the scientific committee that planned session topics and identified and invited keynote speakers. Reese was also a co-author, along with colleagues from the University of North Texas, of a paper, "Molecular basis of host defense against green peach aphid." Reeses paper was presented during the session "Plant Physiological and ...
The tiny seeds of the obligate root parasitic plants of the Orobanchaceae do not germinate unless they detect chemical signals from a host plant. Joel et
Several tests can be performed in the laboratory to determine if a fluid is either a transudate or an exudate. The results of these tests, specifically the chemistries, should be compared with baseline peripheral blood testing in order to determine the whether the results obtained from the fluid sample are normal or abnormal. This is done at the discretion of the clinician as most laboratories do not provide reference ranges for fluids. The major test used to differentiate between a transudate or an exudate is the concentration of total protein in a fluid. Transudates generally have total protein concentration less than 3.0 g/dL while exudates generally have a total protein greater than 3.0 g/dL. Another way of looking at this value is to compare it to the level of total protein found in the patients serum. A transudate will still have a low concentration of total protein while an exudate will generally have a concentration of total protein that is greater than half the concentration of ...

I didnt know what I wanted for breakfast but started to make the base for pumpkin pie for one with 1/4 c pumpkin and 1/2 c egg whites. I mixed it really well and saw the loaf of bread that Id like to finish by Wednesday so it does not go to waste during our holiday travels. A light bulb went off in my head when I saw the bread, I thought, I will just dip toast into this and make Pumpkin French Toast!. My pumpkin batter was already in my single pie dish so I had to slice up the bread for it to fit in there. I like slicing it up before cooking it because the pieces get coated with more batter and its easier to eat at the end- no need to cut! If you had kids you could use cookie cutters and make shapes like Dinosaurs or Trees! I put Oikos Greek Nonfat Organic Yogurt on top, and I heated up frozen peaches, strawberries, pineapple and cherries for the Fruit Compote. ...

This frosting is the best baking idea Ive had in like a year. Im sort of over pumpkin honestly so when I got a hankering for a cozy fall cake, I didnt really know where to turn. Im not an apple gal and carrot cake is made of vegetables. And nuts. And raisins. Come on.. So I decided to go with a pumpkin cake but not just any pumpkin cake. I wanted it to have the moist, dense crumb and warm spices of a carrot cake but with the uniform texture of a traditional pumpkin bread. This cake gets it right. It really does taste like a pumpkin-y carrot cake without the carrots.. For the frosting I was hoping to deepen the flavor by adding some brown sugar but couldnt think of an easy way to add it without the end result being grainy and gritty. But then I remembered that when they process sugar from brown to white the delicious byproduct they remove is molasses! Thats super easy to whip into a frosting. I used the mild flavor because I find the full flavor and blackstrap flavor to have an odd metallic ...
Pumpkin is a gourd-like squash of the genus Cucurbita and the family Cucurbitaceae (which also includes gourds). The Pumpkin is thought to have originated in Central America, possibly Mexico, but is now grown widely in temperate and tropical zones.

Hannah`s really adventurous so I was sure she`d enjoy digging deep into the pumpkin to pull out all the slimy, gooey pumpkin guts! Yah….not so much! :o). While she napped I`d prepped the pumpkin by cutting the top off and scooping the gook off the sides and bottom but leaving it in the pumpkin. (Thankfully in the morning Id taken a quick look at our pumpkin in the garage as I realized that it rotted and a quick trip back to the pumpkin farm was needed to buy a replacement. Note to self: Next year leave pumpkin outside as the garage isnt cold enough. Oops!) When she woke I she was excited to see her pumpkin on the counter and quickly ran to get the little one she`d coloured at daycare last week. I took the top off and asked if she wanted to pull out the guts? She took one peek, and sniff and declared that pumpkin guts are yucky! Heh….so much for Moms photo op shed planned! ...
