(Semina: Ciências Agrárias, 2009-10-01) [Artigo]
Basidyomycete Lentinula edodes has its related enzymatic activity mainly on the agribusiness waste kind used as a substrate. The objective of this work was to verify the activity of oxidative enzymes lacase (Lac), lignina ...
Nodulação, aspectos bioquímicos, crescimento e produtividade do feijoeiro em função da aplicação de bioestimulante
(Semina-ciencias Agrarias, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The use of biostimulants can alter plant growth and development, but the action of they may be varied according to the stage of development of the plant. The aim was to evaluate the effects of forms and times of a biostimulant ...
N-Acetylcysteine an Allium Plant Compound Improves High-Sucrose Diet-Induced Obesity and Related Effects
(Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
This study was designed to determine whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC, C(5)H(9)-NO(3)S), a compound from Allium species may be used as a complementary therapeutic agent, to inhibit high-sucrose induced-obesity and its effects ...
Acidez do solo afetando concentração de micronutrientes, atividade da enzima nitrato redutase e produtividade em plantas de arroz de terras altas
(Semina: Ciências Agrárias, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
The lowest grain yield of rice under no-tillage system (NTS) in relation to the conventional system may be due to the predominance nitrate in the soil and the low nitrate reductase activity. Another reason may be caused ...
