Introduction: Primary care clinicians are presented with hundreds of new clinical recommendations and guidelines. To consider practice change clinicians must identify relevant information and develop a contextual framework. Too much attention to information irrelevant to one's practice results in wasted resources. Read More

Nitric oxide (NO) is an important phytohormone for plant adaptation to mercury (Hg) stress. The effect of Hg on lignin synthesis, NO production in leaf, sheath and root and their relationship were investigated in two members of the grass family - wheat and maize. Hg stress decreased growth and lignin contents, significantly affected phenylpropanoid and monolignol pathways (PAL, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase; 4-coumarate: CoA ligase, 4CL; cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase, CAD), with maize identified to be more sensitive to Hg stress than wheat.

Abscisic acid (ABA) plays a crucial role in response to abiotic stress as important small molecules in regulating metabolism. This study aimed to evaluate the ability of foliar spraying ABA to regulate growth quality at rice seedling stage under salt stress. Results demonstrated that salt stress strongly reduced all the growth parameters of two rice seedlings ('Chaoyouqianhao' and 'Huanghuazhan'), caused prominent decrease in the levels of photosynthetic pigments (mainly in Huanghuazhan), photosynthesis and fluorescence parameters.

Certain plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) reduce salt stress damage in plants. HG-15 is a halotolerant bacterium (able to withstand NaCl concentrations as high as 30%) isolated from the wheat rhizoplane in the Yellow River delta. A qualitative and quantitative investigation of the plant growth-promoting characteristics of this strain confirmed nitrogen fixation, potassium dissolution, ammonia, plant hormone, ACC deaminase, and proline production abilities.

Plant-microbe interactions affect ecosystem function, and plant species influence relevant microorganisms. However, the different genotypes of maize that shape the structure and function of the rhizosphere microbial community remain poorly investigated. During this study, the structures of the rhizosphere microbial community among three genotypes of maize were analyzed at the seedling and maturity stages using high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics analysis.
