  • Expression of phytoglobin affects nitric oxide metabolism and energy state of barley plants exposed to anoxia

    Abstract Class 1 plant hemoglobins (phytoglobins) are upregulated during low-oxygen stress and participate in metabolism and cell signaling via modulation of the levels of nitric oxide (NO). We studied the effects of overexpression and knockdown of the class 1 phytoglobin gene in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) under low-oxygen stress. The overexpression of phytoglobin reduced the ...

  • Environmental Beer Innovation

    Are Edible Pack Bindings the Solution? In 2016 the British population drank an average of 15,000 pints of beer every minute. Meanwhile in 2015, 63 billion gallons of beer was consumed in the USA, 50% of which was from a can. Whilst these statistics may have the beer companies and brewers smiling with glee, these are not good figures, ...

  • Identification of a Chlorophyll Dephytylase Involved in Chlorophyll Turnover in Arabidopsis

    Abstract Chlorophyll turns over in green organs during photosystem repair and is salvaged via de- and re-phytylation, but the enzyme involved in de-phytylation is unknown. We have identified an Arabidopsis thaliana thylakoid protein with a putative hydrolase domain that can dephytylate chlorophyll in vitro and in vivo. The corresponding locus, CHLOROPHYLL DEPHYTYLASE1 (CLD1), was ...

  • The Ins and Outs of Cattle Nutrition

    They say, “You are what you eat.” What goes in and out of our bodies is obviously important for our general health and maintenance. Well, the same holds true for our cattle as well, but with one main difference: Where we only have one stomach to worry about, they have four! Cattle are animals technically classified as ruminants, a distinction that includes sheep, ...

  • How is Ethanol Produced?

    What is ethanol? Ethanol is an alternative fuel made from corn, sugarcane, wheat, and other agricultural products, and is produced by the fermentation of carbohydrates such as sugar, starch, and cellulose. Ethanol Feedstocks All plants contain sugars that can be fermented to make ethanol in a process called biochemical conversion. Plant material can also ...

  • Mixture toxicity of copper, cadmium and zinc to barley seedlings is not explained by antioxidant and oxidative stress biomarkers

    Metal mixture toxicity analysis to plants is complicated by mutual interactions. Here, mixture effects of zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu) on barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) root elongation were analysed using oxidative stress parameters. The hypothesis was that toxic mixture effects on plant growth are better explained by biochemical parameters than by exposure information, because the ...

  • Barley root hair growth and morphology in soil, sand, and water solution media and relationship with nickel toxicity

    Barley, Hordeum vulgare (Doyce), was grown in the three media of soil, hydroponic sand solution (sand), and hydroponic water solution (water) culture at the same environmental conditions for 4 d (days). Barley roots were scanned and root morphology was analyzed. Plants grown in the three media had different root morphology and Ni toxicity response. Root elongations and total root lengths ...

  • Mixture toxicity and interactions of Cu, Ni, Cd and Zn to barley at low effect levels: Something from nothing?

    Metal contamination is mostly a mixture of different metals and these multi‐component mixtures can produce significant mixture effects. This study was set up to investigate toxicity of multiple metal mixtures of Cu, Ni, Cd and Zn to plants at metal doses individually causing low level phytotoxic effects. Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) root elongation toxicity tests were performed in resin ...

  • Crop gene banks are preserving the future of agriculture. But who’s preserving them?

    As climate change makes crop diversity even more important, gene banks struggle to stay afloat. During the past few years of civil war in Syria, rebel fighters have destroyed Shia mosques and Christian graves, and burned and looted Christian churches while the Islamic State group has demolished priceless artifacts in the region. Nothing seemed sacred to the disparate ...

  • Pigs: Montfort Boys Town, Fiji

    Before 1996, Montfort Boy's Town, a school for disadvantaged boys in Suva, Fiji, taught students how to raise both food and funds by farming fish in ponds. In 1996, ZERI and Professor George Chan arrived, proposing a new integrated farming system that would expand their current efforts into FIVE healthy new enterprises by simply gathering the waste generated by a local brewery. These new revenue ...

  • Microwave and microwave–alkali effect on barley straw for total sugar yield

    Lignocellulose is the most remarkable plant material resource for obtaining energy; however, its utility is restrained by its recalcitrant structure. Therefore, it is necessary to apply a convenient pretreatment method to increase the sugar yield. Microwave pretreatment method assists to break down hard lignin structure for improved degradation of cellulose and releasing of sugar. The objectives ...

  • Alleviation of chromium toxicity by hydrogen sulfide in barley

    A hydroponic experiment was carried out to examine the effect of H2S in alleviating chromium (Cr) stress in barley. Two factorial design with six replications was selected including three levels of NaHS (0, 100 and 200 µM) and two levels of Cr (0 and 100 µM) as treatments. The results showed that NaHS addition enhances plant growth and photosynthesis slightly as compared to the control. ...
