Synthesis Of Ascorbic Acid In Excised Tomato Roots

, : Synthesis Of Ascorbic Acid In Excised Tomato Roots. Science 95(2477): 632-633

Sterile cultures of excised tomato roots kept either in darkness or in light can utilize sucrose in the synthesis of ascorbic acid. Roots were grown on modified Pfeffer's soln. containing cane sugar, vitamin B1, and vitamin B6.

The perception of consensus typically produces conformity, but specific attributional circumstances may produce deviance instead. Ironically, the command of an authority figure may create one such circumstance. Participants were presented with sce...

We investigate the death and revival of chaos under the impact of a monotonous time-dependent forcing that changes its strength with a non-negligible rate. Starting on a chaotic attractor it is found that the complexity of the dynamics remains ver...

In this paper, which was prepared for the 14th International Congress of Entomology, the arthropod fauna of Citrus groves in Taiwan is compared with that in China, and pest control since 1895 is reviewed. In 1967, an integrated control programme w...

Maysin, a C-glycosylflavone in maize silk, has insecticidal activity against corn ear-worm, Helicoverpa zea (Boddie), larvae. Sweet corn, Zea mays L., is a vulnerable crop to ear-feeding insects and requires pesticide protection from ear damage. T...
