    • Abstract


      Ultrasonic radiation produced a dose-dependent linear increase in lipid peroxidation in the liposomes membrane as reflected in the measurement of conjugated dienes, lipid hydroperoxides and malondialdehydes. Ultrasound induced malondialdehyde production could not be inhibited by any significant degree by superoxide dismutase or histidine or dimethyl furan but was very significantly inhibited by butylated hydroxytoluene, cholesterol, sodium benzoate, dimethyl sulphoxide, sodium formate and EDTA. The scavenger studies indicated the functional role of hydroxyl radicals in the initiation of ultrasound induced lipid peroxidation.

      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
