Allelopathy as expressed by Mucuna pruriens and the possibility for weed management

  A twelve-week study was undergone to identify selective effects of Mucuna on companion crop plant and to screen Mucuna for capacity to suppress weeds. A 10% (v/w) contamination with Nigerian Bonny light crude oil was simulated for stress tolerance assessment. Mucuna pruriens supported revegetation, soil and water conservation and also contains potentially toxic BTEX and PAHs that...

Changes of some phenolic compounds and enzyme activities on infected pearl millet caused by Sclerospora graminicola

  Purification of low abundance enzymes for biochemical characterization is frequently labor and cost-intensive. The existence of co-expressing multigene families increases the complexity of the procedure even further as it occurs with plant peroxidases where only the most abundant species have been studied. In this paper we present an optimized purification method for Zo peroxidase, a low abundance isoenzyme...
