First Report of Leaf Spot on White Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium) Caused by Epicoccum sorghinum in Hubei province, China.

Plant Dis 2020 Oct 29. Epub 2020 Oct 29.

Wuhan, Hubei , China;

White Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium), a perennial herb of the Compositae family, is used for traditional medicine. The planting area of white chrysanthemum in Macheng city, Hubei Province is about 3333 ha and the annual output can reach more than 5000 tons. In 2019, leaf spot disease appeared on almost all middle and lower leaves of white chrysanthemum in most fields of Fengshumiao county, Macheng city (N31°29'57″, E115°05'49″). Read More

Specific mechanisms of tolerance to copper and cadmium are compromised by a limited concentration of glutathione in alfalfa plants.

Plant Sci 2015 Apr 29;233:165-173. Epub 2015 Jan 29.

Laboratory of Plant Physiology, Department of Biology, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

The induction of oxidative stress is a characteristic symptom of metal phytotoxicity and is counteracted by antioxidants such as glutathione (GSH) or homoglutathione (hGSH). The depletion of GSH│hGSH in fifteen-day-old alfalfa (Medicago sativa) plants pre-incubated with 1mM buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) affected antioxidant responses in a metal-specific manner under exposure to copper (Cu; 0, 6, 30 and 100μM) or cadmium (Cd; 0, 6 and 30μM) for 7 days. The phytotoxic symptoms observed with excess Cu were accompanied by an inhibition of root glutathione reductase (GR) activity, a response that was augmented in Cd-treated plants but reverted when combined with BSO.

Suppressive effects of thyroxine on glucocorticoid (gc)-induced metabolic changes and cataract formation on developing chick embryos.

Exp Eye Res 2001 Jun;72(6):643-8

Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Teikyo University, Sagami-ko, Kanagawa 199-0195, Japan.

To prevent cataracts induced by glucocorticoids (GC) as a systemic disease, the suppression of oxidative stress caused by GC in the hepatic metabolism is of significant interest. In this study, to elucidate the formative mechanism of GC-induced cataracts, we examined the preventive effect and then analysed the mechanisms of thyroxine on GC-induced cataract formation. Fifteen day old chick embryos were administered with 0. Read More

Biosynthetic pathways of testosterone and estradiol-17 beta in slices of the embryonic ovary and testis of the chicken (Gallus domesticus).

Gen Comp Endocrinol 1989 Jan;73(1):69-79

Department of Animal Breeding, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Tokyo, Japan.

To elucidate synthetic pathways of testosterone and estradiol-17 beta in embryonic gonads of the chicken, metabolism of various 14C-labeled steroids in slices of the left ovaries and paired testes of 15- and 9-day-old chicken embryos was examined. (1) Fifteen-day-old chicken embryos: From pregnenolone, more 17 alpha-hydroxypregnenolone was produced than progesterone in the ovary, while more progesterone was produced than 17 alpha-hydroxypregnenolone in the testis. From 17 alpha-hydroxypregnenolone, however, only dehydroepiandrosterone was detected as a product in both gonads. Read More

Delayed taste aversion learning in preweanling rats exposed to alcohol prenatally.

Alcohol 1985 Mar-Apr;2(2):277-80

Parallels between the behavioral profiles of rats exposed to alcohol prenatally and those with hippocampal damage suggest that hippocampal dysfunction may underlie some of the behavioral abnormalities resulting from prenatal alcohol exposure. Because of possible hippocampal involvement in the acquisition of a delayed conditioned taste aversion, this task was assessed in rat pups exposed to alcohol prenatally. Long-Evans rats were maintained on liquid diets containing either 35% or 0% ethanol derived calories from Days 6-20 of gestation. Read More
