One possible explanation for the formation of root meristems; could be even though, the Auxin: Cytokinin ratio was rather moderate. There was still a moderate concentration of auxin present in the media, and auxin is a rather powerful hormone. Which allows it to be active even at lower concentrations, initiating the formation of root meristems. Secondly, when we cut the explants and placed them in the media, the explants had first a callus formed as a wound response. Once the callus had formed in response to the wound/cut, the auxin concentration stimulated the formation of root
Parent acid and base: Hydrochloric acid HCl + Cu (OH) 2 Uses: *Can be used in organic synthesis as it effects chlorination of aromatic hydrocarbons, this is often performed in the presence of aluminium oxide. It is able to chlorinate the alpha position of carbonyl
GRAVIMETRIC DETERMINATION OF MOISTURE AND PHOSPHORUS IN FERTILIZER SAMPLES Magdato, K. C. , Balbuena, J. S. Institute of Chemistry, University of the Philippines, Diliman Quezon City Date Performed: August 27, 29 and September 3, 2014 Date Submitted: September 10, 2014 Abstract The experiment aims to use gravimetric method of analysis in determining the moisture and phosphorus content in a fertilizer sample which is important in plant growth. The procedure included constant weighing of the crucible and sample. The addition of ammonia and magnesium sulfate heptahydrate caused the formation of the precipitate identified as magnesium ammonium phosphate hexahydrate(MgNH4PO46H2O). The weight of the precipitate was used to determine the mass of
Other disaccharides are broken down by other carbohydrase enzymes. Carbohydrates (starch)are broken down in the oral cavity by saliva amylose. They are made up of 3 elements, carbon (C), hydrogen(H) and oxygen(O) and can be found together in three different forms. Either as a monosaccharide, disaccharide or a polysaccharide they are differentiated by the number of rings in their chemical compound. There chemical formation is C6,H12,O6 and due to their bond angles between the carbons, tend to form a pentose of hexoses, stable ring structure.
This pathogen can tolerate a low oxygen conditions and it can survive in low levels of nutrients and temperatures. It contaminate the medical equipments(Lyczak et al., 2006).P. aeruginosa causes various diseases like pneumonias, urinary tract infection and other respiratory insufficiency infections because it takes advantage of an individual that weakened immune system to create an infection. It has adaptability and high intrinsic antibiotic resistance
They also often have fever. Some skin infections spread rapidly and invade the surrounding soft tissue and fascia. This may be life-threatening and typically occurs due to infection with “flesh eating” bacteria – a condition termed necrotizing fasciitis. Due to the importance of this condition, it is critical that patients understand its causes, symptoms, and treatment. By the end of this article, you
Antioxidants give protection against harmful free radicals and reduce rate of cancer and heart disease. The most efficient carotenoid antioxidant is lycopene. Lycopene is a natural pigment which protects the body by neutralizing the negative effects of oxidants. In the synthesis of vitamin A lycopene plays an important role as an intermediate and carotenoid like β-carotene and β cryptoxenthin, influences its development. Lycopene is soluble in fat and synthesized by plants and microorganisms.
The carbohydrates present on the plant: Fructose has a concentration of 55.71, Glucose has a concentration of 54.17, and Sucrose has a concentration of 18.76. The sterols on rhubarb are: Stigma sterol has a concentration of 2.63, β-sit sterol has a concentration of 16.73, Campe sterol has a concentration of 19.77, and Avenno sterol has a concentration of 14.28. These are the organic acids present on rhubarb: Oxalic acid is abundant which has a concentration of 89.7, citric acid has a concentration of 37.29, Tartaric acid has a concentration of 35.75, Formic acid has a concentration of 59.1, Acetic acid has a concentration of 11.33, and Fumaric acid has a concentration of 9.38. Rhubarb is one of the oldest yet frequently used herbal medicines in China and other asian countries. As it was stated, rhubarb seemed to have many pharmacological uses but it was also defined that rhubarb has oxalic acid.
