• weeds
  • In 1936 investigations began at ICIs Jealott's Hill research center into the effects of the plant hormones auxins on plant growth looking specifically for a way to kill weeds without harming crops such as corn. (wikipedia.org)
  • Templeman and Foster were searching for compounds with similar or greater selective activity than 1-naphthaleneacetic acid in inhibiting the growth of weeds while not adversely affecting the growth of cereal grains. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is a systemic herbicide which selectively kills most broadleaf weeds by causing uncontrolled growth in them, but leaves most grasses such as cereals, lawn turf, and grassland relatively unaffected. (wikipedia.org)
  • stem
  • Growth factor in stem cells may spur recove. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Research by others and results of their own work indicated hepatocyte growth factor, which is secreted by mesenchymal stem cells, was a likely instigator. (bio-medicine.org)
  • The researchers will continue their studies, to determine if they can screen mesenchymal stem cells for those that produce the higher amounts of hepatocyte growth factor needed for effective treatment. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Could we now take away the mesenchymal stem cells and treat only with hepatocyte growth factor? (bio-medicine.org)
  • soil
  • By analyzing soil as a dynamic system, rather than an inert substance, he was able to apply techniques such as perfusion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Quastel was able to quantify the influence of various plant hormones, inhibitors and other chemicals on the activity of microorganisms in the soil and assess their direct impact on plant growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • As all auxins, IAA has many different effects, such as inducing cell elongation and cell division with all subsequent results for plant growth and development. (wikipedia.org)
  • development
  • PDGF signaling pathways have been implicated in the development and growth of solid tumors. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A few of the medical advances achieved through the TCA include the clone growth of rodent cells, the development of time lapse cinematography, and the electron microscopic examination of cell structures. (wikipedia.org)
  • On a larger scale, IAA serves as signaling molecule necessary for development of plant organs and coordination of growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Their study is embargoed until published in the online version of N...In animals injected with hepatocyte growth factor inflammation declin. (bio-medicine.org)
  • occurs
  • The production of hormones occurs very often at sites of active growth within the meristems, before cells have fully differentiated. (wikipedia.org)
  • Typically, the end of a shoot contains an apical bud, which is the location where shoot growth occurs. (wikipedia.org)
  • control
  • Opiate binding in the spinal cord was not changed despite the large depletion in substance P: the Bmax and KD were the same in control and treated animals. (jneurosci.org)
  • Leslie John Audus (9 December 1911 - 5 May 2011) was a British botanist and an international authority on the hormones that control plant growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hormones and Horticulture: The Use of Special Chemicals in the Control of Plant Growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • order
  • The drum spun in order to mix the substances and once an hour allow the cultures to be exposed to the environment until the drum rolled again and rebathed the cells in liquid. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • In animals injected with hepatocyte growth factor, inflammation declined and neural cells grew. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Not all plant cells respond to hormones, but those cells that do are programmed to respond at specific points in their growth cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • produce
  • Pruning techniques such as coppicing and pollarding make use of this natural response to damage to direct plant growth and produce a desired shape, size, and/or productivity level for the plant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research
  • Controversies Due to the unusual growth capabilities of the HeLa cell line, it contaminated many cell cultures and ruined years of research, as discovered by Stanley Gartler in 1966. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research she undertook during this period demonstrated the presence in natural manures of nucleic acid degradation products, including the purine bases, and examined their growth-promoting activities. (wikipedia.org)
  • various
  • Rats exposed to maternal antibodies against nerve growth factor (NGF) in utero and in milk have been used to investigate the developmental dependency of various substance P-containing neurons on NGF. (jneurosci.org)
