The effects of a two-stage pretreatment of seedlings on the subsequent shoot regeneration capacity were investigated. Pretreated seedlings were obtained by germinating seeds on three different germination media and then further culturing on six different growth media. Lamina and petiole explants of two sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) breeding lines were then excised from the pretreated seedlings and cultured on five different shoot regeneration media. In both breeding lines, petiole explants produced significantly more shoots than lamina explants with higher frequencies of organogenic capacities; petiole explants of the lines M1195 and ELK345 produced a mean of 2.1 and 2.7 shoots per explant while their lamina explants produced 1.5 and 2.2 shoots per explant, respectively. A genotypic variation was evident as the line ELK345 was more productive for shoot development from both types of explants. In overall comparisons of different germination, growth and regeneration media, germination medium was most effective when supplemented with 0.5 mg/l 6-benzyladenine (BA) while both growth and regeneration media were most productive when contained a combination of 0.25 mg/l BA and 0.10 mg/l indole-3-butyric acid (IBA). Of all the treatments tested, the highest mean number of shoots per explant (8.3 shoots) and frequency of organogenic explants (75.6%) were obtained on regeneration medium supplemented with 0.25 mg/l BA and 0.10 mg/l IBA when petiole explants of the line ELK345 were excised from the seedlings that had been germinated on medium containing 0.5 mg/l BA followed by further growth on medium containing 0.25 mg/l BA and 0.10 mg/l IBA.


Removal of cadmium from aqueous solutions using clinoptilolite: Influence of pretreatment and regeneration
Gedik, Kadir; İmamoğlu, İpek (2008-06-30)
In this study, Cd removal from aqueous solutions via clinoptilolite was investigated in terms of the effect of pretreatment and regeneration. Four different chemicals (NaCl, KCl, CaCl2 and HCl) were tested for this purpose. Samples treated by a total of 20 bed volume (BV) of 1 M NaCl solution prepared in tap water with no pH adjustment were found to perform satisfactorily. Five exhaustion and regeneration cycles were then carried out, revealing an increasing Cd removal capacity, coupled with constant Cd elu...
Protoplast isolation and culture in sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.)
Gürel, Ekrem; Gürel, Songül; Kaya, Zeki (2002-03-01)
In this study, attempts were made to optimise conditions for protoplast isolation from suspension and mesophyll cells, growth of isolated protoplasts and formation of callus from the cultured protoplasts. The enzyme mixture containing 1.0% cellulase, 0.1% hemicellulase, 1.0% pectinase and 0.1% driselase was found to be the most suitable combination for yield and viability of both suspension-and mesophyll-derived protoplasts from sugar beet. Genotypic variation for plating efficiency was significant; ELK345a...
Removal and recovery of nutrients as struvite from anaerobic digestion residues of poultry manure
Yılmazel Tokel, Yasemin Dilşad (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
The removal and the recovery of nutrients, namely nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) from anaerobically digested and solid-liquid separated manure effluents via struvite precipitation were investigated. Both the liquid and the solid phases of the poultry manure digester effluent were subjected to struvite precipitation experiments. The Mg:N:P molar ratio of 1:1:1 in the liquid phase resulted in an average NH4-N removal efficiency of 86.4%, which increased to 97.4% by adjusting the Mg:N:P ratio to 1.5:1:1. The ...
Influences of three different ethylene copolymers on the toughness and other properties of polylactide
MEYVA, YELDA; Kaynak, Cevdet (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate influences of three different ethylene copolymers on the toughness and other properties of very brittle biopolymer PLA (polylactide). For this aim, PLA was melt blended by twin-screw extruder with various amounts of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), ethylene-methyl-acrylate (EMA) and ethylene-n-butyl acrylate-glycidyl-methacrylate (EBA-GMA). SEM and DSC analyses indicated that these ethylene copolymers were thermodynamically immiscible with phase separation in the form o...

The single-pellet moment technique was shown to be a powerful method for investigating the diffusion and adsorption of volatile hydrocarbons in the soil. The technique was used to evaluate effective diffusivities, adsorption equilibrium, and rate constants of chlorinated hydrocarbons (monochloroethane, 1,2-dichloroethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and 1,1,2-trichloroethane). Results obtained in a dry system showed that adsorption rate constants of all these hydrocarbons on the soil pellet used are of the same ...
