Elucidating the pathway for arsenic methylation
We measured the RF signal path loss through the sand for the above frequencies at different horizontal distances between the transmitter and receiver.
We also measured RF signal strength as we changed the vertical distances between the two antennas.
Therefore, soil monitoring and understanding changes in soil ecosystem are considered to be important aspects of any environmental monitoring.
The recent emergence of Wireless Biosensor Networks (WBNs) promises addressing many ecological questions, particularly related to soil, though providing uninterrupted real-time data from various biosensors using RF signals.
The transformed plants were selected through kanamycin resistance and grown till T3 (third transgenic) generation.
The ACS gene expression of these plants will be confirmed through q PCR.
Therefore, we hypothesize that ACS gene might play an important role in poplar plants in mitigating stresses resulting from pollutant exposure.
The homolog of poplar ACC synthase gene was PCR amplified from Arabidopsis thaliana and cloned into p BINmgfp5-er vector, featuring a constitutive cauliflower mosaic virus promoter removing the native jellyfish green fluorescent (GFP) gene.

The recombinant plasmid containing the ACS gene was electroporated into the GV101 strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens.
Arabidopsis plants were genetically engineered with ACS gene by dipping the T0 (transgenic zero or wild type) flowering plants into GV101 strain of Agrobacterium containing the recombinant binary vector.
This study aims to determine if the At4g14370 gene, which encodes a TIR-NBS-LRR class disease resistance protein (DRP), is involved in leaf senescence in Arabidopsis thaliana.
This gene is up-regulated in leaf senescence and the increase in expression occurs in parallel to increases in the H3K4me3 mark.
