Effects of Bacillus subtilis QM3 on Germination and Antioxidant Enzymes Activities of Wheat Seeds under Salt Stress

Qingping Hu, Rongxia Liu, Jinxiu Liu
Salt is an important environmental factor that affects wheat growth and development and restricts crop production. Bacillus subtilis QM3 is a strain of antagonistic strains which have biological control function. In this paper, the effects of wheat seed, and soaked treatment by B. subtilis QM3, on germination and antioxidant enzyme activities under salt stress were studied. The results showed that under salt stress, B. subtilis QM

Optimization Ultrasound Assisted Extraction of Carotenoids from Rhodopseudomonas faecalis PSB-B

Qingping Hu, Yan Wang
The content and species of carotenoids are significantly affected by different carotenoids extraction methods. The comparison of the three methods ultrasonic assisting, grinding and HCl assisting on carotenoids extraction yield from Rhodopseudomonas faecalis PSB-B was carried out. Data ANOVA showed that ultrasound can greatly replace the conventional extraction. And then, based on ultrasonic assisting

Development and Performance Evaluation of Palm Kernel Shells Fueled Stove Converting Waste to Energy

Basil Olufemi Akinnuli, Oluwaseun Oluwagbemiga Ojo, Olutosin Olufisayo Ilori
Oil palm (Elaesis guineensis Jacq.) is an indigenous forest product of West Africa. The natural groves usually have palms that bear ordinary fruits. These fruits emerged hard-kernelled shell (dura) and thin-kernelled shell (tenera). These kernels were found useful as fuel by researcher due to its high calorific value. The existing fuels such as kerosene, gas, are out of reach to an average Nigerian due to its scarcity and high cos

An Investigative Analysis on Mapping X-Ray to Live Using Convolution Neural Networks for Detection of Genu Valgum

Satyake Bakshi
Introduction: Bow Legs and Knock Knees are quite common in growing children, which usually affect the lower portions of the body, however such disorders usually do not have any pathological significance. In this paper, we investigate a method using deep learning to correctly draw a boundary between a physiologically normal knee and a genu valgum. Objective

Instability of Glycemia before Centrifugation without Antiglycolytic and Correction Factors of Differed Glycemia Assays

Bianza Moise Bakadia, Tshilumbayi Falone Mutoba, Bakamona Lina Babidi, Kabengele Arlette Ndaya, Mulongo Pauline Kalenga, Kamona Charles Kimuni, Pembi Christian Kasongo, Lusenge Nono Ndete, Mutumukole Jeanluc Biampata, Ndibualonji Bualufubadibanga Victor
Insert Glycolysis that occurs in vitro venous blood samples is known to induce a rapid drop in blood sugar. The use of an antiglycolytic is prob-lematic, sodium fluoride creates hemolysis and mono-iodoacetate is active two hours after sampling. However, many laboratories are uncentrifuged specimens from distant sampling sites with varying delivery times some-times several hours. The objective of this study is firstly to determine

The Origin of Life Discovered: ΣRNA

Muying Zhou
Since 1992, scientific knowledge has been enough to determine the origin of life: “life originated through RNA”. The truth is that current life world on Earth is just an RNA world, since the protein is created by RNA, then DNA as life’s database is created by RNA along with reverse transcriptase (a protein of RNA making). The two life series on the planet originated through two RNA groups (named ΣRNA ): IΣRNA and IIΣRNA . IΣRNA

Hemodynamic Forces Effective in Reshaping Vascular Geometry

Erhan Kiziltan
Besides the medical education, simulations became an attractive diagnostic method in some clinical cases. Recent advances in computerized image processing bring new practices entitled as “patient specific simulation” to the agenda. One of the successful applications which examines hemodynamic forces as a result of the interaction between blood flow and vessel wall constitutes the topic of this study. In this study, the terms and laws which provided a theoretical basis for the hemodynamic forces ...
