To further dissect the mechanism of salt tolerance in Malus, the comparison was made regarding the differences between the salt-tolerant and salt-sensitive species in sodium accumulation and extrusion capability in the roots and stem base as well as the sodium re-transportation from shoot to roots by using Na labeling-based feeding of leaves and roots-split experiments. The results demonstrated that the salt-tolerant Malus species could accumulate more Na in the main roots, lateral roots, stem base phloem and xylem, and extrude more sodium out than the salt-sensitive one. In addition, the salt-tolerant Malus species had the higher sodium re-transportation rate from shoot to roots. Altogether, it is concluded that the stronger sodium accumulation and extrusion in the roots and the stronger sodium re-transportation from shoot to roots in the salt-tolerant species play important roles in salt tolerance of Malus species.

Sodium is unique among abundant elemental nutrients, because most plant species do not require it for growth or development, whereas animals physiologically require sodium. Foliar sodium influences co...
The AvrRpt2 protein of the phytopathogenic bacterium Erwinia amylovora (AvrRpt2) is a secreted type III effector protein, which is recognised by the FB_MR5 resistance protein of Malus × robusta 5...
A reliable description of any spatial pattern in species richness requires accurate knowledge about species geographical distribution. However, sampling bias may generate artefactual absences within s...
The discovery of sodium storage without concurrent water retention suggests the presence of an additional compartment for sodium distribution in the body. The osmoregulatory role of this compartment u...
The effect of sodium citrate on gluten-starch separation and physicochemical properties of gluten was studied. The results showed that the addition of sodium citrate to the dough caused to an improvem...

Centralisation of neonatal intensive care has led to an increase in postnatal inter-hospital transfers within the first 72 hours of life. Studies have shown transported preterm infants hav...
The overarching goal of this multi-disciplinary research program is to develop and optimize new cross-species translational assessments of reward and cognition that will not only be assess...
This pilot study will test the hypothesis that a low sodium diet will decrease sodium (23Na) magnetic resonance imaging-determined skin sodium concentrations in patients with systemic lupu...
The loss of sodium during infancy causes long term changes in sodium intake. Human research shows that the loss of maternal sodium during pregnancy and neonatal after birth causes an incre...
Noise associated with transportation, particularly aircraft and automobiles.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
The probability distribution associated with two mutually exclusive outcomes; used to model cumulative incidence rates and prevalence rates. The Bernoulli distribution is a special case of binomial distribution.
A distribution function used to describe the occurrence of rare events or to describe the sampling distribution of isolated counts in a continuum of time or space.
A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
