Viability of Litchi chinensis seeds when stored in air and in water

, : Viability of Litchi chinensis seeds when stored in air and in water. Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 104(1): 247-248

Seeds were collected from ripe fruits of the Shahi on 25 May, washed with distilled water and held for up to a fortnight in water or in air. Samples were sown daily from 25 May to 9 June and the germination percentage was determined on 9 July. About 15% of the water-stored seeds developed splits in the testa and were discarded. The mean ambient storage temperature fell to a minimum of 25 +or- 1.8 degrees C at night and rose to a maximum of 31 +or- 2.1 degrees by day.

Of the 5 serum dilutions tested (1:10, 1:20, 1:40, 1:80 and 1: 100), the 1:20 dilution gave the best results in pigs with experimental Leptospira pomona infection, with sensitivity and specificity both at 60%. With increasing concentration sensiti...

In recent years a number of physiological models have gained prominence in the analysis of dynamic contrast-enhanced T1-weighted MRI data. However, there remains little evidence to support their use in estimating the absolute values of tissue phys...

Interleukin (IL)-18 is a cytokine previously demonstrated to participate in neuroinflammatory processes. Since the components of the IL-18 receptor complex are expressed in neurons throughout the brain, IL-18 is also believed to directly influence...
