Allium cepa Linn Improved Rhodanese Activity and Half-life of Cyanide in the Blood

Rhodanese is an intramitochondrial liver enzyme responsible for cyanide detoxification. Allium cepa (Onion); an organosulphur-rich plant that may provide sulphur for cyanide detoxification. The effects of Allium cepa on rhodanese activity during cyanide toxicity were studied in male Wistar rats in vitro and in vivo. In vivo experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of…

Root Studies: What is New? An Extension to a Previous Review of 2013

Recent root studies have included modeling of the soil-root system to quantify the performance of such a complex system. Recent advances in computer sciences and technology have made it more accessible to users of computer sciences, engineering, and life sciences. There are still some limitations because the evolution of millions of years of adaptation to…

Effect of Zinc Application Biofortification of Zn in Grain of Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Varieties

The goal of this study was to see how some chickpea varieties responded to zinc fertilization. In other words, fertilization is used to increase the zinc (an essential element) content of chickpea grain. A lack of zinc results not only in a decrease in product yield, but also in a decrease in quality. Fertilizer application…

Soil pH Interference in the Behavior of Weak Acid Herbicides

Herbicides derived from weak acids can be affected in their sorptive capacity when they interact with soil pH. As a result, when their pH rises, they can reduce their sorption in the soil and increase their leaching. This increases the herbicide’s bioavailability in the soil, resulting in a greater control effect on weeds and crop…

Techniques for Amelioration of Trace Metal Contaminated Soils

Trace metals are present in small amounts in the environment and are ubiquitous. The geological substrate is typically the primary reservoir of trace elements, followed by the oceans, soil, biota, and atmosphere. Trace metal contamination refers to their anthropogenic accumulation, which may or may not cause harm to the system or organism. Soil is an…

Greenhouse Evaporation Measuring Methods for Estimation of Reference Evapotranspiration

Various methods for estimating reference evapotranspiration (ETo) within greenhouses are used due to the large area occupied by a Class A pan. The depth of evapotranspiration is influenced by spatial changes. The findings of the research on what pan coefficient (Kp) should be used inside the greenhouse are inconclusive. As a result, the primary goal…
