  • Arabidopsis Thaliana

    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 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…

  • 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…

  • Rubisco: A Genetic Analysis

    have a role to determine the carboxylation efficiency and CO2 specificity (Spreitzer 2003) or identify residues structural motifs that influence on kinetic variability (Kubien et al., 2008) or stabilize the enzymatically active conformation of specific structure of Rubisco(Bracher et al., 2011), however, the actual function of rbcS is unknown. At transcriptome level, different expression patterns are observed in different organs, in different type of cells (mensophyll and bundle-sheeth cells),…

  • Albinism In Biology

    proteins have to be imported and the building of thylakoid networks, that contain photosynthetic electron transport complexes, have to be integrated. This causes the production of color. The biogenesis of chloroplasts also requires the use of both the nuclear and chloroplast genomes to produce a protein. The majority of the chloroplast proteins are encoded by the nucleus so it is not surprising that most mutants, where the chloroplast biogenesis doesn‘t function properly, have mutations on…

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Fad2 In Pennycress

    gene function reduction of FAD2 in Thlaspi arvense using RNA interference method, lowered linoleic/linoleic acid content and increased oleic acid content in seed oil. We are hoping to find less unsaturated fatty acids in the seed oil content in FAD2 gene knockout transgenic Thlaspi arvense. FAD2 function is knocked out only in the seeds and not in vegetative tissues as it plays an important role in plant’s fitness (J.C. Sedbrook, et al, 2014). INTRODUCTION: Pennycress plant has proven itself…

  • Questions On Water Is Most Likely To Enter A Mesophyll Cell

    Campbell's Biology, 9e (Reece et al.) Chapter 35 Plant Structure, Growth, and Development In previous chapters, students have been exposed to basic processes in life such as photosynthesis, respiration, and evolution. Chapter 35 provides key vocabulary on plant structure and development and introduces basic concepts and processes. This information is critical for understanding higher-order concepts introduced in subsequent chapters. Multiple-Choice Questions 1) One major advantage of…
