In plants, environmental adversity often leads to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) because of excess light energy. We found that incubation of rice leaves under high light intensity together with CO2-depleted air seriously damaged photosynthesis; however, the application

It was shown that ubiquinone (CoQ(10)) and ubiquinol (CoQ(10)H(2)) produce fluorescence products under alkaline conditions when reacted with 2-cyanoacetamide. The reaction mixture from CoQ(10) gave fluorescence with excitation and emission maximum wavelengths at 442 nm and 549 nm, respectively. This

Inclusions of intraneuronal alpha-synuclein (α-synuclein) can be detected in brains of patients with Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies. The aggregation of α-synuclein is a central feature of the disease pathogenesis. Among the different α-synuclein species, large oligomers/protofibrils have
