Egg Parasitoids of Dalbulus maidis (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) Within Maize Agroecosystems and in the Edge Zones of Maize Fields, and on Maize Varieties During the Wet Season in Mexico.

Little is known about Dalbulus maidis (DeLong) egg parasitoids within maize fields, in the edge zones that surround these fields, and the parasitism on D. maidis eggs oviposited on different maize var...

Yield and kernel nutritional quality in normal maize and quality protein maize cultivars exposed to ozone.

Tropospheric ozone (O ) being phytotoxic impacts global food security. Present study investigated yield responses and kernel quality traits of two maize cultivars [DHM117: normal maize (NM)] and [HQPM...

Transcriptomic analysis of the maize (Zea mays L.) inbred line B73 response to heat stress at the seedling stage.

High temperature is a common stress, which influences the growth and reproduction of plants. Maize is one of the most important crops all over the world. However, heat stress reduces significantly the...

β-Cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin are highly bioavailable from whole-grain and refined biofortified orange maize in humans with optimal vitamin A status: a randomized, crossover, placebo-controlled trial.

Biofortification of staple crops with β-carotene is a strategy to reduce vitamin A deficiency, and several varieties are available in some African countries. β-Cryptoxanthin (BCX)-enhanced maize is ...

Co-occurrence of mycotoxins in maize food and maize-based feed from small-scale farms in Brazil: a pilot study.

A limited survey was conducted to assess the co-occurrence of aflatoxins (AF) B, B, G, and G; fumonisins (FB) B and B; ochratoxin A (OTA); zearalenone (ZEN); and deoxynivalenol (DON) in maize food (N...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An order of basidiomycetous fungi; some species are parasitic on grasses (POACEAE) and maize.

The type species of genus Mastrevirus, family GEMINIVIRIDAE.

Discrete segments of DNA which can excise and reintegrate to another site in the genome. Most are inactive, i.e., have not been found to exist outside the integrated state. DNA transposable elements include bacterial IS (insertion sequence) elements, Tn elements, the maize controlling elements Ac and Ds, Drosophila P, gypsy, and pogo elements, the human Tigger elements and the Tc and mariner elements which are found throughout the animal kingdom.

A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
