Abstract

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

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 GSHhGSH in fifteen-day-old alfalfa (Medicago sativa) plants pre-incubated with 1 mM buthionine sulfoximine...

AbstractFull Text

Histopathological changes of water soluble fraction of Iranian crude oil in muscle of yellow fin sea bream (Acantopagrus latus).

Increasing amount of industrial and commercial chemical discharge into the aquatic environment has led to pathological side effects on aquatic organism. Water soluble fraction (WSF) of crude oil can pollute water and cause histopathological alterations in fish. Therefore, sea water pollution with...

AbstractFull Text

Study about efficiency of nitrate removal from water by activated carbon prepared by pistachio, walnut and almond shells.

Materials that are used for preparing activated carbon are very important on adsorption ability of the activated carbon. Chip agricultural waste, same as nut shells successfully can be used for preparing activated carbon. The abject of this research is comparing characteristics of activated carbon...
