Chromium stress on peroxidase, ascorbate peroxidase and acid invertase in pea (Pisum sativum L.) seedling

In this investigation, chromium (Cr) toxicity on enzymes like peroxidase, ascorbate peroxidase and acid invertase was studied in pea seedling to evaluate the relative tolerance of the different pea varieties. Effect of Cr (0, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 mM) on different parts of the seedling that is, cotyledon, plumule and radicle were studied separately to have a comparative study of the enzyme activity in these parts of the plants...

Histopathological studies of microsporidian infected tissues of Lamerin breed of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L.

Ultrastructure of gut and fat bodies of Lamerin breed of the silkworm Bombyx mori L infected with microsporidia did not show hypertropy of cells but structural disorganization was obvious in infected tissues. The different developmental stages (meronts and sporonts) and a few mature spore could be observed in direct contact with cell cytoplasm. Key words: Bombyx...
