KNO3 and CaCl2 acts as osmo-protectants and have profound effect on the crop growth through their effects on water uptake root growth maintenance of turgor and transpiration in leaves.
In present study the enzyme production in Pleurotus ostreatus-P1 culture media was monitored by induction of inducers (CaCl2, CuSO4, FeSO4, ZnSO4, Na2SO4) were exercised in the synthetic medium to determine the effect of different inducers on laccase production.
Fruit samples of each cultivar were dipped in either 0 or 9 % CaCl2 solution for 12 minutes and divided into two groups each containing 150 fruits.
The fruit weight, pulp weight and pulp dry weight % was significantly higher with CaCl2 + Borax foliar application as compared to CaCl2 alone.
Irrigation and leachate collection: The soil columns were irrigated weekly with CaCl2 solution (0.01 M) as an artificial rain (Chopra et al., 2010).
Background solution of 0.005M CaCl2 was used for desorption.
Citrate plasma was mixed with kaolin and then loaded in a heparinase-coated cup containing 20 ml of CaCl2 [18].
Five hundred milligrams of freshly isolated mitochondria was added to 1 mL of buffer C (KCl 130 mM, HEPES 25 mM, EGTA 0.1 mM, and KH2PO4 10 mM) supplemented with glutamate/malate as substrates for the mitochondrial complex I, 4 [micro]M calcium green, and 10 mM CaCl2. The reaction was stopped by the addition of a 0.1 mM aliquot of the mitochondrial uncoupler CCCP.
A PT reagent consists of CaCl2 plus tissue factor protein and a phospholipid mixture, which together function as thromboplastin to activate factor VII and the extrinsic coagulation pathway.
Cu-TEA reagent with small quantity of CaCl2 was used for maximum extraction of Cu-FFA and for stable value of blanks in the present study.
Wheat seeds were soaked in water for 8 h (on-farm priming), CaCl2 solution (Pss -1.25 MPa; osmopriming) for 18 h and aerated water (hydro-priming) for 18 h.
The media used were : Luria Bertani ( 0,5% NaCl, 1% Tryptone, 0,5% Extraits de levure); Tryptone soya broth TSB); Amidon (0, 5%;) Galactose (0,5%); Fructose (0, 5%) ; and mineral solution (MgSO4 x 5H2O: 0, 06%, KH2PO4: 0, 1%, Cacl2 x 6H2O: 0.2% , K2HPO4 .0, 2%).
The CaCl2 bath facilitated the exchange of sodium ions with Ca ions.
The soil material used had sandy clay loam texture (sand = 519 g [kg.sup.-1], silt = 195 g [kg.sup.-1] and clay = 286 g [kg.sup.-1]) and fertility with available P = 3.0 mg [dm.sup.-3]; organic matter (OM) = 10 g [dm.sup.-3]; [pH.sub.(CaCl2)] = 4.3; [K.sup.+] = 0.9 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3]; [Ca.sup.2+] = 3.0 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3]; [Mg.sup.2+] = 2.0 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3]; [H.sup.+] + [Al.sup.3+] = 22 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3]; [Al.sup.3+] = 4.0 mmol [dm.sup.-3]; SB = 5.9 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3]; CEC = 27.9 [mmol.sub.c] [dm.sup.-3] and V = 21%.
