TAC1

A gene on chromosome 7q21-q22 that encodes four different tachykinins—substance P, neurokinin A, neuropeptide K and neuropeptide gamma—which are thought to function as neurotransmitters, interacting with nerve receptors and smooth muscle cells, inducing behavioural responses and acting as vasodilators and secretagogues.

have also developed the NPK Brewery[TM], a commercial-scale Nutricycler[TM] facility.
This, too, has been expanded through de-bottlenecking, and includes a unit producing NPK.
The results show that the highest weight is recorded in Helix aspersa at NPK (10.
Consumption of NPK has continued to increase because of its higher efficacy.
Although all of the chemical fertilizers consist of a formulation of NPK (20-5-20 for the present study) and also contain high percentages of N, authors like Meerow and Broschat (1996) report that this type of fertilizer should not be used for potted palm trees because the large amount of soluble salt harms the roots, reducing plant growth.
25 g NPK fertilizer/1000 g medium also showed the highest total fresh weight of fruit body at 155 days after inoculation (181.
Rate of NPK influenced spore abundance in the maize/Centrosema system; the highest spore count (92) was at NPK 0-10-30, followed by the control, which had 66 spores/100g soil.
Fertiliser NPK was applied in the form of urea, single superphosphate, and muriate of potash and was applied following standard regional practice at the following rates: site 1, rice (120-26-50), wheat (120-26-50), jute (60-13-50) kg/ha; site 2, rice (120-60-60), wheat (100-60-40) kg/ha; site 3, wet season rice (60-40-40), dry season rice (80-40-40) kg/ha.
The study consists of three treatments managed in a no-till system that involve stover harvest and MC applications, which include 1) 75% stover harvest in the spring followed by an MC application prior to planting 2) 75% stover harvest in the spring followed with an application of NPK and 3) No stover harvest followed with an application of NPK.
Popova further says that the old NPK is too formal and includes inadequate solutions to fight corruption and organized crime, which imposes the urgent need of amendments.
