Investigations on heat resistance of spinach leaves.

Exposure of spinach plants to high temperature (35° C) increased the heat resistance of the leaves by about 3° C. This hardening process occurred with...

[Investigations on the distribution of manganese between cell fractions from spinach leaves].
1. Spinach was harvested once a week, beginning five weeks after sowing. The leaves were divided into three categories, according to their height of insertion. For every category, Hill-activity and manganese content (by atomic absorption) were measur

The effect of heat hardening on the heat resistance of some enzymes from plant leaves.
Heat hardening of leaves which leads to an increase in the heat resistance of their cells, also increases the heat resistance of their enzymes (urease, acid phosphatase, ATPase). As judged by the temperature reducing enzyme activity by 50%, the heat

Localization of adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase in spinach leaves.
Roots of spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) seedlings contained only a very low activity of adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase compared to the cotyledons. Adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase activity increased about tenfold in cotyledo

Time-resolved spectroscopy of the blue fluorescence of spinach leaves.
When excited by ultraviolet radiation, leaves of a great number of species of higher plants exhibit emission of blue fluorescence, comparable in intensity to the red emission of chlorophyll. The fluorescence decay of the blue emission of spinach leav

A sulfotransferase from spinach leaves using adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate.
Active sulfotransferase can be extracted from spinach (Spinacea oleracea L.) leaves (and other higher plants) using a buffer system containing 0.1 M KCl and thiol reagents. This sulfotransferase is labile, it can, however, be stabilized by storage in

[Studies on the light-induced reversible xanthophyll-conversions in Chlorella and spinach leaves].
1. Using new methods in thin-layer chromatography, experiments were carried out to prove the light-induced changes in the quantity of various xanthophylls in Chlorella and spinach leaves. The probable connection of these interconversions to electron

[Investigations of the metabolism of the mycelium of Puccinia graminis var. tritici on wheat leaves].
Rusted wheat leaves were incubated simultaneously with alanine-1-(14)C and glucose-6-T. Uredospores formed during the application of the tracers were collected and the bound alanine was isolated from the spores and the host tissue. Comparison of the

Effects of High Temperature Frying of Spinach Leaves in Sunflower Oil on Carotenoids, Chlorophylls, and Tocopherol Composition.
Spinach is one of the highly consumed vegetable, with significant nutritional, and beneficial properties. This study revealed for the first time, the effects of high temperature frying on the carotenoids, chlorophylls, and tocopherol contents of spin

Combination treatment of chlorine dioxide gas and aerosolized sanitizer for inactivating foodborne pathogens on spinach leaves and tomatoes.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial effect of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) gas and aerosolized sanitizer, when applied alone or in combination, on the survival of Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella Typhimurium, and Listeria mon

Properties and physiological function of a glutathione reductase purified from spinach leaves by affinity chromatography.
Glutathione reductase (EC 1.6.4.2) was purified from spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) leaves by affinity chromatography on ADP-Sepharose. The purified enzyme has a specific activity of 246 enzyme units/mg protein and is homogeneous by the criterion of
