    New cultivars for the Italian Burley industry

    COZZOLINO E.; LEONE V.; LOMBARDI P.
    Consiglio per la Ricerca e la Sperimentazione in Agricoltura - Unità di Ricerca per le Colture Alternative al Tabacco (CRA-CAT), Scafati (SA), Italy
    Lack of information about cultivar adaptation to specific areas is a hindrance to the progress of the tobacco industry. To provide such information for Italian Burley areas, an on-farm variety trial is underway at Vitulazio, in the province of Caserta, ...

    Molecular mechanisms of smoking induced cardiovascular disease: insights from cellular and animal models

    ZWEIER J.L.
    Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute and the John H. and Mildred C. Lumley Chair in Medicine at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, USA
    This lecture will review how smoking contributes to cause cardiovascular disease and the critical role of endothelial dysfunction in this process. The process by which the critical endothelial-derived relaxing factor, nitric oxide (NO), and the enzyme ...

    Effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on the yield, quality and chemical characteristics of Oriental (sun-cured) tobacco

    KARAIVAZOGLOU N.A.; PAPAKOSTA D.K.; DIVANIDIS S.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece; Tobacco Institute of Greece, Chemistry Dept., Drama, Greece
    Harvest date is one of the most important crop management practices affecting tobacco yield, quality and usability after curing. In a two-year field experiment, investigations were made into the effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on several ...

    Application of carbon fiber microelectrodes for measurement of kinetic constants of nitric oxide decay in blood

    ZWEIER J.L.; XIAOPING LIU; EL-SHERBINY G.A.
    Ohio State University, Center for Environmental and Smoking Induced Diseases, Davis Heart and Lung Research Inst., Columbus, OH, USA
    Endogenous nitric oxide (NO) is a potent vasodilator that regulates vascular tone. There is evidence that cigarette smoking increases superoxide production in blood vessels by rapidly inactivating NO. This impaired NO bioavailability is a critical cause ...

    Identification of differentially expressed proteins in blood plasma of control and cigarette smoke-exposed mice by 2-d differential in-gel electrophoresis/mass spectrometry

    ZWEIER T.L.; TEWARI A.K.
    Ohio State University, Center for Environmental and Smoking Induced Diseases, Davis Heart and Lung Research Inst., Columbus, OH, USA
    Cigarette smoke exposure is known to induce chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, atherosclerosis, and several types of cancer in humans and also in animal models. Smoking leads to oxidative stress and inflammation that are important in triggering ...
