  • Arabidopsis Thaliana

    produce becomes inviable and these plants cannot successfully reproduce (Environmental Factors That… 1998). This need for a specific temperature hold true to Arabidopsis thaliana just like any other plant with its optimal temperature at 25 C° for the wild type species (R.L. Vellanoweth 1995). In this study, Arabidopsis wild type plants will be compared…

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana Development

    The Importance of Phosphate Levels (NaH2PO4) on Proper Arabidopsis thaliana Development Introduction Proper plant development is dependent on nutrient availability (Krouk et al. 2011). In this regard, plants can respond to nutrient availability by changing their root system architecture. In particular, phosphate (NaH2PO4) levels were found to affect the root system architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana (Williamson et al. 2001), which might impact overall plant development. A better…

  • Arabidopsis Experiment

    Arabidopsis cell wall mutants INTRODUCTION & AIMS Plant cell walls are highly dynamic structure which is made up of polysaccharide such as cellulose. In plant cell, cellulose is synthesised at the plasma membrane by the enzyme cellulose synthase (CesA) which forms rosette structure with 18 CesA proteins in total. Mutating any of these CesA proteins is thought to interfere with the normal production of cellulose in plant. As cellulose is an important component of cell wall and is essential for…

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana Root

    Sulfamethazine remediation potential of Arabidopsis thaliana root ABSTRACT The use of antibiotics in animals either as a growth promoting or as a disease treating agent has become a worldwide trend. Antibiotics being stable bioactive compounds are not fully absorbed into the animal system and are released into the environment through animal manure. This study aims to discern the effect of one such veterinary antibiotic, sulfamethazine, on Arabidopsis thaliana root and also the possible…

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana Lab Report

    Title Occurrence of microRNA expressions using two macronutrient deficiencies presented to Arabidopsis Thaliana Introduction Arabidopsis Thaliana was the model chosen for this experiment. It was used for miRNA expression because its entire genome is already sequenced (Weems 362-369). It is also easy to grow in difficult conditions and has a short lifespan. This all makes it an easy plant to work with for research (Weems 362-369). The macronutrients phosphorus and sulfur were used for the study…

  • What Is The Effect Of Salt Concentration On Seed Germination

    Impact of Salt on Seed Germination Introduction Germination is a key event in a plant’s lifetime and controlled by two main factors which are water and salt stress (Yuan et al., 2016 and Vallejo et al., 2010). Salt stress affects plant growth and crop production by causing osmotic and ionic stress in plants. Alonso-Blanco et al in 2009 reported that less study was made on the traits in Arabidopsis thaliana despite the immense genetic variation present in the species and the importance of seed…

  • Ap Bio Lab Essay

    Three 3X3” plant pots labelled as A, B, and C were used during our experiment. Each pot contained standard soil media with basic nutrients, and 3 Arabidopsis seeds. All pots were watered with appropriate Hoagland’s Solution formulation three times per week over the next 4 weeks. Pot A (phosphate limitation group) was given a phosphate reduced Hoagland’s solution, whereas Pot B (nitrogen limitation group) was watered with nitrate reduced Hoagland’s solution. Pot C (control) is the control plant…

  • Epigenetics

    genotypes that in turn produce new phenotypes as a result of epigenetic events in response to environmental stimuli and these phenotypes could be stable enough to both characterize the given genotype and be transmissible . Arabidopsis thaliana is a well known plant model organism useThe d in genetics and plant molecular biology. Since daylight and temperature vary on daily time and seasonal basis all around the world including areas in which Arabidopsis thaliana grows it is used in attempts to…

  • Sterol Synthesis Lab Report

    Conversely, the smt1 mutant in Arabidopsis accumulates cholesterol and has less C-24 alkylated sterol contents (e.g. less campesterol, sitosterol and stigmasterol) (Diener et al., 2000). This indicates a pivotal role for SMT1 in the channeling of sterol synthesis between alkylated and non-alkylated sidechain sterols. A second methylation can further increase the sterol side-chain length. This step is catalyzed by sterol methyltransferase type-2 (SMT2), and the preferred substrate is 24-methylene…
