Boron toxicity induces sulfate transporters at transcriptional level in Arabidopsis thaliana
Kayihan, Ceyhun; Aksoy, Emre; Mutlu, Su Naz (2023-1-01)
Plants activate glutathione (GSH)-dependent detoxification pathways at biochemical and molecular levels under boron (B) toxicity. Sulfate uptake and transport are necessary for GSH biosynthesis in plants. Therefore, the transcriptional regulation of some sulfate transporters was determined in this study to clarify the importance of these transporters in leaf and root tissues of Arabidopsis thaliana under toxic B conditions. The expression level of SULTR1;3 was dramatically increased in leaf and root tissues...
Boron removal from aqueous solutions via polymer enhanced ultrafiltration using novel Imino-bis-propane diol functional polymers
Zerze, Hasan; Özbelge, H. Önder; Yılmaz, Levent; Department of Chemical Engineering (2012)
In this work, newly synthesized poly (vinyl amino-N, N’-bis-propane diol) (GPVA) and copolymer, poly (vinyl amino-N, N’-bis-propane diol-co-DADMAC) (GPVA-co-DADMAC) were efficiently exploited for boron removal via polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF). Boron concentration could be reduced from 10ppm down to 0.4ppm using GPVA whereas it could be reduced from 10ppm down to 0.8ppm with copolymer GPVA-co-DADMAC at pH 9 and loading (boron-to-polymer mass ratio) 0.001 via continuous polymer enhanced ultrafiltra...

Boron doped hydroxyapatites in biomedical applications
Uysal, İdil; Yılmaz, Bengi; Evis, Zafer (2020-12-01)
Hydroxyapatite has been widely used in biomedical applications as a coatingmaterial for implant surfaces, a drug carrier, a scaffold or composite for bonetissue engineering applications. The highly ionic structure of hydroxyapatite allowsdoping of various ions, resulting in an improvement in its properties. Boron is oneof the elements which can be doped into hydroxyapatite structure by replacingphosphate (PO43-) or hydroxyl (OH-) sites to obtain scaffolds for bone tissueengineering applications or a coating...
Boron nitride/zinc doped hydroxyapatite/polycaprolactone composite scaffolds for bone tissue engineering
Turhan, Emine Ayşe; Evis, Zafer; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2021-3)
Bone diseases and disorders have been expected to increase mostly in time because of the aging, obesity and pysical activity problems. For this reason, bone tissue engineering has been focus point to design new biocompatible scaffolds and enhance bone tissue regeneration. Composite scaffolds composed of PCL, Zn doped hydoxyapatite (HA), and boron nitride nanofibers (BNNFs) were prepared by the rotary jet spinning for bone tissue engineering applications. Synthesis of BNNFs and Zn-HA was achieved by the free...
