Thresholds for chickpea leaf expansion and transpiration response to soil water deficit


, : Thresholds for chickpea leaf expansion and transpiration response to soil water deficit. Field Crops Research 68(3): 205-210

This study determined the thresholds (the onset of decline) for leaf expansion (C<sub>L</sub>) and transpiration (C<sub>T</sub>) responses to soil water deficit in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and evaluated their importance to crop performance under rainfed conditions using a chickpea simulation model in two contrasting locations. Two pot experiments were conducted to determine the thresholds during a drying cycle, when plant responses were monitored as the soil dried progressively.

To investigate the influence of tumor cell architecture on T-cell activation, we used an autologous human model based on 2 bladder tumor cell lines as targets for cytotoxic tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs). These tumor cell lines were grown i...
