Experiments in plant tissue culture by John H Dodds( Book )

45 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third edition of Experiments in Plant Tissue Culture makes available new and updated information that has resulted from recent advances in the applications of plant tissue culture techniques to agriculture and industry. This laboratory text features an enlarged section on terminology and definitions as well as additional information on equipment and facilities. This comprehensive text takes the reader through a graded series of experimental protocols and also provides a preliminary review of each topic. After an introductory historical background, there are discussions of a plant tissue culture laboratory, aseptic techniques, and nutritional components of media. Subsequent chapters are devoted to callus induction, organ formation, cell suspensions, somatic embryogenesis, root cultures, micropropagation, anther and pollen cultures, xylem cell differentiation, isolation and fusion of protoplasts, storage of genetic resources, secondary metabolite production, and quantitation of procedures. A glossary of terms, a list of commercial sources of supplies, and a table of media formulations are included. This book offers all the basic experimental methods for the major research areas of plant tissue culture, and will be invaluable to undergraduates and research investigators in the plant sciences. It will also be useful to researchers in related areas such as forestry, agronomy, and horticulture, and to those in commercial houses and pharmaceutical companies interested in acquiring the laboratory techniques
Cytodifferentiation in plants : xylogenesis as a model system by Lorin Watson Roberts( Book )

9 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vascular differentiation and plant growth regulators by Lorin Watson Roberts( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main objective of the book is to provide an up-to-date examination of the possible roles of plant hormones during the cytodifferentiation of xylem and phloem elements in higher plants. Various facets of vascular differentiation, as cell determination, cell cycle activity, and the biochemical events in xylogenesis, are analyzed. Furthermore, the latest information on the roles of auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, ethylene, and abscisic acid during vascular cell formation are summarized. A theoretical discussion of the six-point hypothesis and the vascular adaptation hypothesis is included. The experimental induction of vascular differentiation under tissue culture conditions is critically appraised and a concluding chapter covers the interactions between physical factors, growth regulators, and differentiation
Cytodifferentiation in plants : xylogenesis as a model system by Lorin Watson Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Study of African trypanosomiasis and leishmaniasis by I. E Muriithi( Book )

3 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pathogenesis of Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense was studied in 42 cattle experimentally infected with different isolates from Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania. Nineteen of the cattle died or were terminated in extremis 3-60 months post inoculation. Nine of 11 isolates tested produced central nervous system (CNS) disorder in the cattle. The CNS disorders developed early (3 months) in some animals and later (60 months) in others. Parasites were difficult to find on wet blood smears or by subinoculations of blood after the fourther month of infection. Parasites persisted in lymph nodes, however. It appears that the bovine is a suitable model for T.b. rhodesiense infection with syndromes similar to those in human infections. Berenil (R) treatment of hosts and subsequent transmission of T. congolense and T. vivax by tsetse flies were investigated. The complement fixation (CF) test and the micro-ELISA were compared in the diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis, Originator-supplied keywords include: Glossina morsitans, kala-azar, Leishmania donovani, and Complement fixation test
