  • What is the nature of petals in Caryophyllaceae? Developmental evidence clarifies their evolutionary origin. [Journal Article]
    Ann Bot 2019; 124(2):281-295Wei L, Craene LR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Developmental evidence and character mapping reject the hypothesis that petaloids represent a staminodial whorl and suggest that they are independent structures equivalent to second-whorl petals of most Pentapetalae and present in the basal Caryophyllaceae. Heterochronic shifts, including a delay in petal development and acceleration of androecial growth, are responsible for the amalgamation of petals with the androecium as common stamen-petal primordia and their appearance as stamen-derived appendages. Selective pollinator pressure in Caryophyllaceae led to variable petal expansion or reduction and loss. This trend corresponds largely with the general tendency in the core Caryophyllales for petal loss and perianth reorganization.
  • Lactate-stimulated ethanol oxidation: Revisiting an old hypothesis. [Journal Article]
    Biochem Pharmacol 2019; 164:283-288Villalobos-García D, Hernández-Muñoz R
  • Liver slices from starved rats and incubated without other substrates oxidized ethanol at a rate of 4.1 µmols • h-1 • g-1. Addition of 10 mmols • L-1 lactate increased this rate 2-fold. 4-methylpyrazole (4-MP), an alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) inhibitor, drastically decreased the rate of ethanol oxidation, but did not inhibit the stimulation due to lactate. In the same context, liver acetaldehyde p…
  • Enhanced radiocesium uptake by rice with fermented bark and ammonium salt amendments. [Journal Article]
    J Environ Radioact 2019; 202:59-65Sun X, Kobayashi S, … Mori M
  • There are ongoing problems with radioactive cesium (Cs) contaminated agricultural soil after the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. In this study, the behavior of Cs uptake by rice plants grown in soil sprayed with fermented bark amendment (FBA) was investigated. In rice cultivation by pot, the application of FBA resulted in the acceleration of Cs uptake by rice plants. This might be…
  • The biological treatment planning evolution of clinical fractionated radiotherapy using high LET. [Review]
    Int J Radiat Biol 2018; 94(8):752-755Parodi K
  • Starting from the birth of high linear energy transfer (LET) radiotherapy in USA in the mid-1970s, the field has continuously evolved and to date over 20,000 patients have been treated with 12C ions worldwide. The purpose of this contribution is to review the advancements in clinical fractionated radiotherapy using high LET radiation in the last decades, with special focus on biological treatment…
  • Radiotherapy for laryngeal cancer-technical aspects and alternate fractionation. [Review]
    J Radiat Res 2017; 58(4):495-508Yamazaki H, Suzuki G, … Ogawa K
  • Early laryngeal, especially glottic, cancer is a good candidate for radiotherapy because obvious early symptoms (e.g. hoarseness) make earlier treatment possible and with highly successful localized control. This type of cancer is also a good model for exploring the basic principles of radiation oncology and several key findings (e.g. dose, fractionation, field size, patient fixation, and overall…
