RT-PCR revealed that the expression profile of GmbZIP53A and GmbZIP53B is quite different under sucrose starvation treatment, while the two genes share high similarity.
The immunoreactive signal at 24 h with molecular masses of about 16 kD is significantly higher in the presence of the inhibitors of proteases than in the absence, when soybean seedlings were subjected to sucrose starvation treatment. It suggests that a reduction of amino acid pool by suppressed proteolysis with the inhibitor is involved in induction mechanism of GmbZIP53-related protein.
Immunoreactive signals of BCAT-related proteins were detected at significant levels in severe starvation treatment with molecular masses of about 50 kDa (Figure 2(c)).
Starvation Treatment: Starving patients can be treated, but this must be done cautiously to avoid re-feeding syndrome.
"It is some form of schizophrenia that KGB psychiatrists diagnose in dissidents, and, where Western psychiatrists seek funds to discover the genetic cause of this ghastly disease, their Soviet colleagues gleefully report 'the 65 percent improvement rate' produced by starvation treatment."
The percentages of survival of the JI-JIV crab stages were high (>90%) in both the starvation treatments (S1 and S3) and the FC group.
point of reserve saturation; [PRS.sub.50], period when 50% of the megalopae reach the point of reserve saturation; S1-S5, starvation treatments 1-5; SC, starvation control; % SIM.
Although sterile techniques were not used, bacterial contamination did not contribute significantly to rotifer nutrition in starvation treatments. Some suspension-feeding rotifers such as Brachionus and Keratella are able to ingest bacteria, while Synchaeta cannot (Starkweather et al.
Nearly 80% of the spiderlings housed individually in the starvation controls died after 2 wk, which was significantly higher than that observed in the starvation treatments where cannibalism was possible.
