Installing turf in a sports stadium or golf course can be daunting to say the least, as it typically involves laying hundreds of rolls of sod. In many cases, it's still a people-intensive, hard job, with much of the dirty work still done by hand.
"We realized the nurseries were making all the profit on the sod," he says.
While fence populations may be relatively stable because of low or nil immigration rates and lack of obvious natural selection pressures, sod populations are subject to immigration and natural selection (Casler, 2004).
Normalized Cu/Zn SOD and Mn SOD mRNAs were higher in the patients than in the controls (Table 2).
Uterine homogenates were centrifuged at 4[degrees]C for 30 min at 3000xg and then supernatants were analysed for TBARS, SOD, CAT and TNF-[alpha].
In present study, results of crude showed that the activity of SOD was decreased in kidney of Pb+Cr exposed fish (625 UmL-1) as compared to control (725 UmL-1) (Fig.
The current study was planned to reveal the alterations in systemic SOD activity to be inherent genetically or acquired as a disease process.
The SOD activity, GST activity, T-AOC, and MDA level in the supernatants were determined using their corresponding diagnostic reagent kits (Nanjing Jiancheng Bioengineering) spectrophotometrically according to the manufacturer's instructions.
SOD genes exist as a superfamily; however, no genome-wide information is available for SOD gene family in cucumber.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant enzyme, which plays an important role in process of scavenging ROS through catalyzing the dismutation of superoxide anion to [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] and molecular oxygen [4].
Furthermore, it has been shown that peptides of the Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase protein (Cu/Zn SOD) are immunodominant and a DNA vaccine encoding the sodC gene (Cu-Zn SOD) provides protection [17, 22].
Enzymes, such as SOD, GSH-Px and CAT, are the main components in the antioxidantsystem (Shi et al., 2014; Ma et al., 2014), which scavengeunwanted O2-and H2O2, and ROOH produced by freeradicals.
