By examining the data as a whole a trend of decreased cellular respiration in seedlings soaked in solutions with increased NaCl concentrations. The water treatment which had a 0% NaCl concentration had a higher respiration rate than the seedlings soaked in the 3% NaCl concentration. This overall trend of the data supports the
From the graph on page 10 indicating Plant D’s growth, it is evident that Plant D began to grow at a standard rate due to the positive gradient evident. The graph then begins to decline and the gradual negative gradient indicates the deterioration in the plant’s condition and, thus, in the leaf width and length. Plant D’s Leaf width has a more gradual decline which indicates a slower rate of deterioration and it fluctuates around a stable mark indicating that leaf width was barely affected by the use of microwaved
Analysis of Mammal Tooth Mass Loss in Laboratory Phosphoric Acid Results from the experiment of soaking tooth in phosphoric acid (Table 6 and Graph 1) show a very weak positive correlation between the concentration of phosphoric acid and percentage mass loss in each tooth. Initially from 0.1M to 0.3M, there is a sharp increase in percentage mass loss of tooth soaked within these solutions, however, as seen from the graph, the percentage mass loss of tooth within 0.4M and 0.5M starts to decrease steadily. The data points combined together almost show a parabolic relationship between the two variables. The R2 value is less than 0.5, suggesting a non-linear relationship between the two variables. Below will be an explanation of each reasons
Although decrease in levels of lipid peroxidation in plasma and kidney to intermediate levels with a percentage of 7.5% and 19% respectively was observed in the diabetic group treated with 12.5% of blackberry beverage, but generally, the values are not statistically different if compared with the diabetic group treated only with water. In fact, the diabetic group treated with higher dose of blackberry beverage (25%) showed significantly different values in the reduction of lipid peroxidation levels with a percentage of 19% from the diabetic group
“Tuberculosis was another big killer in the 1800s (Humphries/ Bystrianyk 15). By the late 1930’s the death rate had dropped by 92% (Humphries/ Bystrianyk 15). By 1970, the decline had reached over 99% (Humphries/ Bystrianyk 15). During the 1900’s this disease was killing 5 to 16 times more people than typhoid, scarlet fever, whooping cough, measles, or diphtheria (Humphries/ Bystrianyk 15).” Despite the substantial amount of deaths from Tuberculosis many good treatments to not only treat tuberculosis but to help cure many other infections and bacterias appeared. For instance, Rifampin, an antibiotic used to treat Tuberculosis, Neisseria meningitidis- also known as Meningitis- or infections in the nose and throat.
On the other hand, some other authors prefer combined 4th ray amputation and 5th ray radial translocation achieving better functional results in the form of 83% pinch strength, 80% grip strength in comparison to the healthy side. In addition the ROM of the MPJ was 78? . In another study, patients with single ray amputation with translation of the adjacent digit showed 28% grip, 13% key pinch, and 26% oppositional pinch strength loss compared with the non-injured hand. Furthermore, gross hand function as measured by the MRM test and fine finger dexterity as measured by the TGP test showed 12% and 24% loss, respectively (6).
The first hypothesis of this lab was proved false. The first hypothesis of the red light making plants grow the fastest was wrong because the blue light filter made it grow an inch to an inch and a half taller than the red. In the experiment with lettuce, the plants under the red light grew to be 11 centimeters, while the plants under the blue light grew to be 12 centimeters. In the second experiment, plants under the blue light grew to become 14.5 centimeters, while the plants under the red light grew to be 13 centimeters. The second hypothesis, which said that the green filter would make plants grow the slowest, was both correct and incorrect.
paracasei isolated from the Portuguese dairy industry was found to be 2.5 mg/ml with surface tension 41.8 mN/m (Gudina et al., 2010). Those surfactants can decrease the surface tension of water or PBS around 36-39 mN/m and even their cmc values ranges from 1.0-20 mg/mL. As compare to the chemical surfactant surface tension reduction and cmc values it has been very close to the surface tension reduce by the SDS (Sodium dodecyl sulfate) i.e. 37.0 mN/m and 1.8 mg/L respectively. Biosurfactant produced by the Lactobacillus spp.
 in a monkey model of periodontitis treated with Alendronate did not observe an effect on probing depth measurement.As per the results of present study , there was significant improvement in all clinical parameters with the Alendronate group having comparatively better result than Tetracycline group. The Alendronate group has an upper hand in terms of periodontal therapy since it gives us a maximum reduction in all clinical parameters. Alendronate is known to act on the bone surface for inhibition of the osteoclastic activity. Within limits superimposed by a relatively smaller sample size ,the present study shows improvements in clinical parameters both in Group I and II .However ,the Group I showed better result in terms of Clinical Attachment Level gain, Clinical probing depth and
According to a school-curriculum based website which supports this source (IGCSE, 2014), a plant is unable to harvest light at high intensities and the chlorophyll system can be damaged by very intense light levels. The difference between shaded and non-shaded plants and their rate of photosynthesis can be seen in an example of a rubber leaves experiment where the photosynthetic rate of rubber leaves developed in 25% full sunlight was less than one-third that of plants growing in full sunlight. (RODRIGO, 2003) This result can be deemed reliable and valid as it was conducted by three biologists at the University of Wales. This experiment indicates that plants have adapted to survive in shaded conditions and thus should be depicted in its structure and chlorophyll
Because of malaria being such a dangerous disease, evolution has valued the resistance to malaria that free radicals give, even though the free radicals can cause hemolytic anemia. Although hemolytic anemia can cause death from cells bursting and kidney or heart failure, this still isn’t as big of an issue to survival rather than malaria. Malaria causes you to be extremely weak, and it causes death a lot more frequently than anemia. Because of the stress that free radicals put on the bacteria that causes malaria, people with favism are more resistant to malaria. It has been shown in research that P. falciparum (the bacteria that causes malaria) prefers blood cells that do not have as many free radicals rather than blood cells that have G6PD deficiency.
In the study, all the tested fungi was susceptible to the tea tree oil (TTO) and its components . Because of its ability to affect a wide range of fungi, TTO may also affect fusarium euwallacea and prevent the PSHB from being able to cultivate it within the tree xylem. I hypothesize that TTO will act as a natural fungicide and prevent or lessen the severity of fusarium dieback on infested trees. The independent variable is the percent amount of fungicide recommended used on a tree, and the dependent variable is amount of fungus present in the
To be within accepted calorie intake levels, use a shot glass to measure the nuts. TEA: While tea has become well known for its cancer-fighting antioxidants, it is also a great defense against LDL cholesterol levels. According to research conducted with the USDA, black tea has been shown to reduce blood lipids by up to 10% in only 3 weeks. BEANS: Researchers at Arizona State University Polytechnic found that adding ½ cup of beans to soup lowers total cholesterol, including LDL, by up to 8%. The key to this heart-healthy food is its abundance of fiber, which helps decrease absorption of
