Food shortages and international agricultural programs

, : Food shortages and international agricultural programs. Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 23(6): 505-517

The most recent data indicate an unconscionable 842 million people are chronically hungry in the world, 94 percent in developing countries. India, China, and other Asian countries that were the centre of concern over hunger in 1960 have been among the most successful at increasing food production and consumption. Current food shortages, both chronic and acute, are concentrated in sub-Sahara Africa.

The cardiotonic agent, 2-[(2-methoxy-4-methylsulfinyl)phenyl]-1H-imidazol[4,5-b]pyridine (AR-L 115BS), increases cardiac contractility and lowers cardiac pre- and afterload. These properties were shown to favourably influence hemodynamics at rest...

Following a pathological insult, the adult mammalian heart undergoes hypertrophic growth and remodeling of the extracellular matrix. Although a small subpopulation of cardiomyocytes can reenter the cell cycle following cardiac injury, the myocardi...

We provide genetic evidence to show that the Mycobacterium tuberculosis FtsZ and FtsW proteins interact, and that these interactions are biologically relevant. Furthermore, we show by fluorescence microscopy that Mycobacterium smegmatis FtsW is pa...
