Single and double u-tube ground heat exchangers in multiple-layer substrates
The efficiency of ground-source heat pumps depends on the correct sizing of the associated ground heat exchangers (GHEs). Multiple ground layers with regard to GHE and the presence of more than one loops in each borehole ...
Development of a novel PCR based analytical protocol for the characterization of the two variants of prolactin gene that affect milk yield in sheep breeds
Prolactin is a lactogenic hormone which plays a significant role in milk production in mammals, and its depletion in sheep provokes severe reduction of milk secretion. Two different variants within intron 2 of the prolactin ...
Altered ascorbate redox state in tobacco plants results in delayed dark induced senescence in detached leaves
Ascorbate oxidase (AO) is an apoplastic enzyme that uses oxygen to catalyze the oxidation of ascorbate (AA) to dehydroascorbate (DHA) via the unstable radical monodehydroascorbate (MDHA). Here, we report that transgenic ...
Identification of established genetic variants associated with milk traits
The present study investigated the genetic diversity of small ruminant breeds of Cyprus, regarding β-lactoglobulin (β-LG) genotypes and the existence of bovine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). In total, 366 animals ...
The mitigating effects of nitric oxide and hydrogen peroxide pre-treatments to salt-stressed strawberry plants
Nitric oxide (NO) and hydrogen peroxide (H202) are reactive nitrogen and oxygen species with a well-documented signaling role necessary for maintenance of cell redox homeostasis. In the present study we tested whether ...
