The effects of different NO3- concentrations (CK, 16 mmol x L(-1) NO3-; T1, 48 mmol x L(-1) NO3-; T2, 96 mmol x L(-1) NO3-; T3, 144 mmol x L(-1) NO3-) on the growth properties and antioxidant enzymes activities of strawberry seedlings were studied by sand culture. The results indicated that the plant height, leaf area, dry matter accumulation and root/shoot ratio of strawberry seedlings in T1, T2 and T3 were significantly decreased compared to the control (CK) after 15 days of treatment. The plant heights in T1, T2 and T3 decreased by 16.1%, 36.8% and 43.9%, and the areas of functional leaf decreased by 19.7%, 34.3% and 47.5% respectively, compared to the control. With the increasing NO3- concentration, the malondialdehyde (MDA), proline, soluble protein content and relative electronic leakage of the strawberry seedlings first increased and then decreased, but all those parameters in T1, T2 and T3 were higher than in the control. The activities of antioxidant enzymes, superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase (POD), ascorbate peroxidase (APX) in both root and leaf, and catalase (CAT) in the root first increased and then decreased, but the CAT activity in the leaf gradually decreased with the increasing NO3 concentration. In T3, th...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
