Pyrophosphate dependent phosphofructokinsase (PFP) activity and other aspects of sucrose metabolism in sugarcane internodal tissues.
The biochemical basis for the regulation of sucrose accumulation is not fully understood. The present study was thus aimed at investigating aspects of 'coarse' (enzyme activity) and 'fine' (metabolite) control of glycolytic ...
A molecular study of y-Aminobutyric acid synthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana under abiotic stress.
y-Aminonbutyric acid (GABA) is a ubiquitous non-protein amino acid found ill many plants and organisms. GABA accumulation in plants has previously been reported as result of stresses such as water deprivation, high ...
Endogenous and exogenous factors involved in sorghum germination with reference to malting.
In Africa, the grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench), is malted to provide the most important ingredient in brewing, malt, which is used primarily for the production of traditional (opaque) sorghum beer. Malting ...
Behaviour and social organization of the African Jacana Actophilornis africanus.
The behaviour, nesting, food resources and mating system of the African Jacana Actophilornis africanus were studied at Muzi Swamp, northern KwaZulu-Natal and at Darvill Sewerage Works, KwaZulu-Natal. African Jacanas ...
Uptake of Cadmium and its effect on the physiology of the liverwort Dumortiera hirsuta (SW) Nees and the moss Atrichum androgynum (CM) Jaeg.
In this thesis, the uptake kinetics of Cd by the liverwort D. hirsuta and the moss A. androgynum were investigated. In preliminary experiments, the toxicity of Cd to the bryophytes was investigated by characterising the ...
