    Physiological Mechanism of Exogenous Selenium in Alleviating Mercury Stress on Pakchoi (Brassica campestris L.)

    Chengxu Qian1, Qiangwen Chen1,2, Leiyu Jiang1, Xiaoyan Yang3, Shen Rao4, Weiwei Zhang1, Feng Xu1,*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.5, pp. 951-962, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2024.050893

    Abstract The objective of this study was to explain the physiological mechanisms through which NaSeO mitigates the growth and developmental inhibition of pakchoi under HgCl stress. The results showed that treatment with HgCl (40 mg L) led to reduced biomass, dwarfing, root shortening, and root tip necrosis in pakchoi. Compared to control (CK), the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase (POD) in Hg treatment increased, and the content of malondialdehyde (MDA) also dramatically increased, which negatively impacted the growth of pakchoi. Low concentrations of NaSeO (0.2 mg L) significantly increased the content of soluble sugars… More >

    Physiological and Transcriptome Analysis Illuminates the Molecular Mechanisms of the Drought Resistance Improved by Alginate Oligosaccharides in Triticum aestivum L.

    Yunhong Zhang1,2,*, Yonghui Yang1,2, Jiawei Mao1,2

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.2, pp. 185-212, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.046811

    Abstract Alginate oligosaccharides (AOS) enhance drought resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), but the definite mechanisms remain largely unknown. The physiological and transcriptome responses of wheat seedlings treated with AOS were analyzed under drought stress simulated with polyethylene glycol-6000. The results showed that AOS promoted the growth of wheat seedlings and reduced oxidative damage by improving peroxidase and superoxide dismutase activities under drought stress. A total of 10,064 and 15,208 differentially expressed unigenes (DEGs) obtained from the AOS treatment and control samples at 24 and 72 h after dehydration, respectively, were mainly enriched in the biosynthesis of… More >

    A Sound Quality Evaluation Method for Vehicle Interior Noise Based on Auditory Loudness Model

    Zhiheng He1, Hui Guo2, Houguang Liu1,*, Yu Zhao1,3, Zipeng Zhang1, Shanguo Yang1

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.58, pp. 47-58, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sv.2024.045470

    Abstract When designing and optimizing the hull of vehicles, their sound quality needs to be considered, which greatly depends on the psychoacoustic parameters. However, the traditional psychoacoustic calculation method does not consider the influence of the real human ear anatomic structure, even the loudness which is most related to the auditory periphery. In order to introduce the real physiological structure of the human ear into the evaluation of vehicle sound quality, this paper first carried out the vehicle internal noise test to obtain the experimental samples. Then, the physiological loudness was predicted based on an established More >

    Physiological Dynamics and Transcriptomic Analysis of Cut Roses ‘Carola’ Treated with KNO

    Songmei Liu, Yuheng Wu, Hongmei Li, Dongli Cai, Huiling Liang, Changchun Ye, Shenggen He*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.12, pp. 3267-3290, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.045453


    The consumption of cut roses (Rosa hybrida) has always ranked first in the world. However, it is vulnerable to rapid petal and leaf wilting due to leaf stomatal water loss, which seriously affects its ornamental quality and economic value. Stomatal movement, a key in plant physiological processes, is influenced by potassium and nitrate. Advancing comprehension of its physiological and molecular mechanism holds promise for preserving the freshness of cut roses. This study observed the impacts of different concentrations of KNO3 vase treatments on stomatal opening and water loss in cut rose ‘Carola’ leaves, as well as

    Jiepeng Yao1,2, Zhanjia Peng1,2, Jingjing Liu1,2, Chengxiao Fan1,2, Zhongyi Wang1,2,3, Lan Huang1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.3, pp. 2243-2265, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.028101

    Abstract In the establishment of differential equations, the determination of time-varying parameters is a difficult problem, especially for equations related to life activities. Thus, we propose a new framework named BioE-PINN based on a physical information neural network that successfully obtains the time-varying parameters of differential equations. In the proposed framework, the learnable factors and scale parameters are used to implement adaptive activation functions, and hard constraints and loss function weights are skillfully added to the neural network output to speed up the training convergence and improve the accuracy of physical information neural networks. In this… More >
