The effect of oil pollution of soil on germination, growth and nutrient uptake of corn

, : The effect of oil pollution of soil on germination, growth and nutrient uptake of corn. Journal of Environmental Quality 4(4): 537-540

On a ferruginous tropical soil germination and yields were drastically reduced as the level of pollution increased. At 4.2% crude oil pollution level, the average reductions were 50% and 92% in germination and yield, respectively. The amount of organic C, total N, and exchangeable K, Fe, and Mn increased in the soil with level of crude oil addition, while extractable P, NO3-N, and exchangeable Ca were reduced.

Cationic polyamidoamine dendrimers are known to be highly branched cascade polymers. Tripeptide growth factor, glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine (GHK), was employed as a ligand for activation or attachment of cells from a rat hepatoma cell line, H4-H-E-C...

A study of interleukin-1, interleukin-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, transforming growth factor-beta, and nitric oxide. Methods employed previously to analyze the secretory behavior of rodent Kupffer cells (KC) were used to examine the human KC's secretory response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS). As the resident hepatic macrophage, the KC resides at the interface...

The authors estimated noninvasively the wall stress distribution for actual abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in vivo on a patient-to-patient basis and correlated the peak wall stress (PWS) with various geometrical parameters. They studied 39 pati...
