Rooting is a process that is induced by many difficulties, especially in fruit trees. For this reason, four nutrient terrains that contain different concentrations of auxin ANA (α-naphthaleneacetic acid), BAP, GA3 and macro and micronutrient MSs are compared. Rizogenesis is observed after three to four weeks of cultivation on the ground of rupture. Explants react differently in each field used (Figures 4,5,6,7). The concentration of inorganic and auxinous ANA salts on the nutrient terrains affects the rooting index and the characteristics of the roots. Plants of the prunus cerasium L species showed better results during rooting cultivation ...

Interaction Of Nanofibers With Epithelial Cells In The Digestive System, Agron Millaku Oct 2018

Interaction Of Nanofibers With Epithelial Cells In The Digestive System, Agron Millaku

UBT International Conference

In this study, we provide the evidence of interaction of tungsten nanofibres (NF- WOx) with epithelial cells in the digestive tube of a test organism, woodlouse Porcellio Scaber studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). When the nanofibers enter the body through food, not all of them pass through the digestive system, without an interaction with the epithelial cells. The result has provided us that in some areas nanofibers can react with epithelial cells on the digestive tube very fast. The images which were taken in the treated samples through scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy analysis clearly show such ...
