  • Growth and survival of pacific coho salmon smolts exposed as juveniles to pesticides within urban streams in western Washington

    Pesticides are frequently detected in urban streams with concentrations often exceeding those reported in surface waters within agricultural areas. We studied growth, survival, and return rates of coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) smolts exposed to a pesticide mixture (“cocktail”) representative of that most frequently reported within urban streams in western Washington State, USA, in fall ...

  • Kinetics of Phenylpropanoid gene expression in maize growing internodes: Relationships with cell wall deposition

    Both for cattle nutrition and biofuel production, the improvement in maize (Zea mays L.) cell wall degradability depends on understanding the genetic mechanisms involved in the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoids. Most of the genes involved in monolignol and p-hydroxycinnamate biosynthesis are known, but many belong to multigene families. A macro-array with cell wall gene specific tags was used to ...
