    • Abstract


      Cladosporium sphaerospermum, isolated from salt pans was halotolerant. When grown in the presence of salt, the activities of invertase, isocitrate lyase, fructose-1,6 diphosphate aldolase and malate dehydrogenase were found to be increased and that of amylase decreased. Both, enzyme activation as well as an increase inde novo synthesis of enzymes were found to be some of the mechanisms of salt mediated changes. This may be one of the adaptive mechanisms, in halotolerantCladosporium sphaerospermum.

      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
