    • Abstract


      Neurospora crassa Em 5297a can utilize sodium Β-glycerophosphate as a sole phosphorous source (in the place of KH2PO4). Under these conditions a repressible alkaline phosphatase is elaborated which has different pH optimum towards Β-glycerophosphate (10.2) and pyrophosphate (9.0) as substrates. This enzyme does not require any metal ion for its activity and could be assayed in the presence of EDTA. However, under conditions of cobalt toxicity, the activity of this enzyme is high and is decreased in copper and nickel toxicities.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
