Desiccation tolerance of Zizania palustris seeds: temperature dependence, imbibitional damage, and role of 'dehydrin' proteins

, : Desiccation tolerance of Zizania palustris seeds: temperature dependence, imbibitional damage, and role of 'dehydrin' proteins. Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Seeds: basic and applied aspects of seed biology, Angers, France, 20-24 July, 1992 Volume 3: 851-856

Previously thought to be intolerant of desiccation, seeds of North American wild rice (Zizania palustris var. interior) can survive dehydration to as low as 7% moisture content if dehydration occurs at temperatures >25 degrees C, and if imbibitional damage is avoided by slow rehydration at temperatures between 10 degrees and 25 degrees. Developing embryonic axes are germinable as much as 2 weeks prior to the acquisition of desiccation tolerance.

In the present study we determined the role of transient receptor potential V1 channel (TRPV1) and acid-sensing ion channel 3 (ASIC3) in chronic nociception. 1% formalin was used to produce long-lasting secondary allodynia and hyperalgesia in rats...

Yersinia enterocolitica produces a virulence-associated phospholipase A(2) (YplA) that is secreted via its flagellar type-III secretion apparatus. When the N-terminal 59 amino acids of YplA are removed (giving YplA(S)), it retains phospholipase ac...

Background: GW8248 is a potent benzophenone NNRTI that is active against WT HIV-1 and a wide variety of NNRTI-resistant strains, including Y181C and K103N. GW8248 was studied to determine the in vitro antiviral activity in combination with other a...
