apparent inadequacy of sodium requirement in broiler chickens.wheat-soy and corn-soy basal diets designed to be complete in all known nutrients failed to support normal growth and feed efficiency of male broiler chicks to two weeks of age. highly significant growth responses to these diets were obtained from the addition of faba meal (vicia faba l.) or of 0.2% na2so4. subsequent studies showed these diets to be deficient in sodium even though they contained, by analysis, 0.13 or 0.14% of sodium. a very low sodium content of the drinking water (3 p.p.m.) is ...1977564508
associative symbiosis of azotobacter chroococcum and higher plants.the association between a selected strain of azotobacter chroococcum and seven plants was investigated in water cultures under sterile conditions. azotobacter population progressively increased in the nutrient solution and on the rhizoplane. microbial propagation depends on the type of plant, being much higher in presence of wheat, followed by barley, maize, broad bean, and cotton, while in presence of fenugreek and lentil lower rates of multiplication were recorded. inoculation increased the dr ...1979473964
effect of gamma irradiation on nutritional value of dry field beans (phaseolus vulgaris) for chicks.the effect of gamma irradiation (60co) of different varieties and breeding lines of dry field beans (phaseolus vulgaris) on chick growth was determined using a chick growth assay in which the diet contained approximately 50% beans. total protein (n x 6.25) in beans was not changed appreciably by irradiation (21 mrad) but protein solubility in water was decreased. irradiation increased in vitro enzymatic digestibility of bean protein by pepsin and by a mixture of trypsin, chymotrypsin and peptida ...1979448472
ammonia assimilation by rhizobium cultures and bacteroids.the enzymes involved in the assimilation of ammonia by free-living cultures of rhizobium spp. are glutamine synthetase (ec. 6.o.i.2), glutamate synthase (l-glutamine:2-oxoglutarate amino transferase) and glutamate dehydrogenase (ed i.4.i.4). under conditions of ammonia or nitrate limitation in a chemostat the assimilation of ammonia by cultures of r. leguminosarum, r. trifolii and r. japonicum proceeded via glutamine synthetase and glutamate synthase. under glucose limitation and with an excess ...1975234505
nutritional effects of field bean (vicia faba l.) proteinase inhibitors fed to rats.1. weanling rats were fed on purified-casein diets containing active and inactive (autoclaved) field bean (vicia faba l.) proteinase inhibitors (pi) at levels of 1.25, 2.5, 5.0 and 10 g/kg. diets containing raw- and autoclaved-field-bean meal (fbm) were also given. the body-weight gain, protein efficiency ratio (per); i.e. the ratio of the live weight gain in g/g of protein consumed and apparent nitrogen digestibility were determined 7, 14 and 21 d after the start of the trial. 2. significant gr ...1979420757

[examination and composition of some legume seeds (author's transl)].the chemical composition of some legume seeds is reviewed. it was found that soy (glycine soja), field beans (vicia faba), vicia sativa and lens culingris (red seeds) have the highest protein content. there were only minor differences in amino acid composition except for glutamic acid. the lysine content of legume seeds was high. lysine is the most limiting essential amino acid in cereal proteins, therefore cereal products can be improved nutritionally by addition of legume seed flour. examinati ...1977560092
dose-response relationship for x-ray induced dominant lethal mutations detected in mouse embryos in vitro.x-irradiated male mice sired offspring that expressed dominant lethal mutations during development in vitro. these mutations were expressed as arrest of the embryo either before or after blastocyst formation and were induced in germ cells irradiated as spermatids. when the dose-response data for the induced dominant lethal mutation rate were fit to a linear-quadratic model for dose-response curves, they were found to be compatible with mutation induction by both one-track and two-track processes ...1978566851
[characterization of a protease from thermoactinomyces vulgaris (thermitase). 3. substrate specificity and properties of partially purified thermitase].during the process of cultivation of th. vulgaris several proteases are formed. in the present investigation the extensively purified major component was used. the substrate specificity was determined by means of 7 proteins, 7 amino acid esters, 5 fatty acid esters and 15 amino acid 4-nitroanilides. among the protein substrates tested, urea denaturated hemoglobin was split best, followed by gelatin, casein, field bean protein, serum albumin and gluten. the weakest rate of hydrolysis was observed ...197834957
glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase variants: gd (+) alexandra associated with neonatal jaundice and gd (-) camperdown in a young man with lamellar cataracts.two male subjects are described, with unusual clinical presentations and with hitherto undescribed g6pd variants. the first, of italian extraction, suffered from severe neonatal jaundice following maternal ingestion of fresh broad beans (vicia fava) both prenatally and postnatally: the expression of the enzymatic defect was much more severe in the neonatal period than on retesting in adolescence, when biochemical characterization showed unique features which justify designation as a new variant ...197823402
affinity chromatography of human serum proteins using matrix bound lectins from viscum album and vicia faba.the d-galactose specific lectin from viscum album and the d-mannose specific lectin from vicia faba react with serum proteins which contain the corresponding carboyhydrate moieties. by affinity chromatography of human serum using the combination of insolubilized lectins coupled to sepharose it is possible to fractionate serum proteins in 3 groups: 1. proteins which react with both of the lectins; 2. proteins which react only with one of the lectins; 3. proteins which do not display any affinity ...1979525149
protein quality in cereals and pulses. 3. bioassays with rats and chickens on sorghum (sorghum vulgare pers.), barley and field beans (vicia faba l.). influence of polyethylene glycol on digestibility on the protein in high-tannin grain.1. two preceding papers in this series describe the application of microbiological and other in vitro tests in the evaluation of sorghum (sorghum vulgare pers.), field beans (vicia faba l.) and barley, and in assessing the influence of polyethylene glycol (peg 4000) on the nutritional availability of the methionine. the present paper gives for comparison the results of bioassays on some of the same test samples. net protein utilization (npu) in rats was measured by the nitrogen balance method, a ...1979476045

metabolic factors and the utilization of phosphorus by plants.the overall process of entry and transport of phosphate by plants has been separated into its component parts. rapid esterification is involved but a small proportion of the total transport may occur by a non-metabolic route. mannose alters the metabolism of phosphate in roots of cereals and thereby reduces the transport to the shoot by as much as 99% whereas dicotyledonous species are much less sensitive. the sequestration of phosphate as mannose 6-phosphate is reversible in some species depend ...1977357118
[phytopathological tests with pseudomonas aeruginosa (author's transl)].several strains of pseudomonas aeruginosa were investigated for pathogenicity to plant tissue. inoculations into the intercellular spaces of leaves of vicia faba (28 degrees c) and vinca rosea (36 degrees c) showed negative results. in leaves of nicotiana tabacum (32 degrees c) the bacteria multiplied; the tissue reacted to form partial lesions and necrosis. neither in culture filtrates of the bacteria nor in eluates of inoculated leaves pectolytic and cellulolytic enzymes or breakdown products ...1977416619
effect of raw field bean (vicia faba) on amino-acid-degrading enzymes in rats and chicks.the effects of vicia faba diet on urinary nitrogenous compounds and on enzyme activities of pathways directly associated with amino acid metabolism were studied in rats and chicks. the urea and creatinine excretion of rats fed on v. faba was approximately 90% more than that of control rats. the v.-faba-fed rats had increased activities of liver arginase (ec 3.5.3.1), argininosuccinate synthetase (ec 6.3.4.5) and alanine aminotransferase (ec 2.6.1.2). the chicks fed on v. faba also showed increas ...1979424086
[symbiotic efficiency in spontaneous mutants of rhizobium legumino-sarum resistant to streptomyocin, spectinomycin, or kanamycin].symbiotic effectiveness of 45 mutant strains selected from four wild effective strains of rhizobium leguminosarum for resistance to streptomycin, spectinomycin or kanamycin was determined on vicia faba. loss of effectiveness occurred in twenty of these mutants; distribution of ineffective mutants was uniform among the three types of antibiotic resistant mutants but varied with the parent strain from which mutants have been derived.1975125155
[aflatoxins produced by aspergillus flavus in soya and other legumes].there is no doubt that our programme of applied nutrition must include soya on account of the high nutritive value of the legume. this underlines research undertaken here regarding the risks of contamination by a. flavus and the subsequent formation of aflatoxins on and in soya beans. we have studied on parallel lines soya beans and other legumes important in the local dietary habits. these legumes are either obtained locally or imported. on every specimen of legume we have tried to confirm, or ...1977418721
non-coordinated histone synthesis with dna replication and close temporal association of ribosomal proteins and rrna syntheses in germinating vicia faba embryos.syntheses of dna, rna and basic proteins during germination of vicia faba seeds were examined. incorporation of [3h]thymidine into dna reached a maximum peak at approximately 34 h after beginning imbibition and the phase of dna replication was preceded by active rna synthesis. when vicia embryos were labeled with [3h]lysine or e13h]arginine, these isotopes were incorporated into ribosomal proteins and histones. the incorporation studies indicated that the synthesis of ribosomal structural protei ...1978656424

lectin-associated proteins from the seeds of leguminosae.the seeds of pisum sativum (pea), canavalia ensiformis, vicia faba, vicia sativa, and ricinus communis were shown to contain proteins which are associated to the respective lectins (lectin binders). the lectin binders from pisum sativum and canavalia ensiformis were studied more closely. both are single proteins not resembling the variety of membrane glycoproteins found in animals and plants which bind to lectins. the pea lectin binder is a tetrameric glycoprotein composed of identical subunits ...1979511093
[aspergillus flavus link -- a new parasite on tetralonia lanuginosa klug].the wild type bee tetralonia lanuginosa, that plays an important role in fertilization of vicia faba in egypt, is often attacked by aspergillus flavus strains. this infection causes up to 50 per cent decay of the bee nymphs and/or pupae.1976827870
isolation and partial characterization of a lectin from vicia faba.a lectin present in the broad bean, vicia faba, was isolated by affinity chromatography on sephadex g-150. the active lectin had a molecular weight of 50 000. the lectin contained about 3% neutral sugar and it contained two different subunits. the subunits had molecular weights of 17 300 and 14 300. the lectin was mitogenic to human peripheral lymphocytes with some reduction in activity upon acetylation. the lectin competed with pea lectin for binding to murine tumor cells. binding to tumor cell ...1976822878
cis-analysis of a seed protein gene promoter: the conservative ry repeat catgcatg within the legumin box is essential for tissue-specific expression of a legumin gene.a 2.4 kb fragment containing the 5'-flanking region and the 5'-noncoding sequence of the vicia faba legumin gene leb4 mediates high level seed-specific expression in transgenic tobacco plants. deleted derivatives of this legumin upstream sequence were fused to the npt-ii reporter gene to determine the tissue-specific activity of the chimeric constructs in stably transformed tobacco plants. the results indicate the presence of positive regulatory, enhancer-like cis elements within 566 bp of the u ...19921338774
[nutritional study of field bean protein isolate and of spun field bean protein-casein fibers].the amino acid composition of the different field bean protein isolates shows a good correspondence. in relation to casein the content of the whole essential amino acids is low. in the first line the low content of methionine and cystine limits the biological value of this proteins. the content of lysine is relatively high. the enzymatic in vitro-hydrolysis results in a corresponding availability of the amino acids between the field bean proteins and casein. the digestibility is very good, the b ...1976958366
conformational states of cowpea chlorotic mottle virus ribonucleic acid components.the conditions determining conformational changes in the four ribonucleic acid components of cowpea chlorotic mottle virus have been studied. all four components have at least two electrophoretically separable conformers, the occurrence of which can be regulated by both monovalent and polyvalent cations. this phenomenon also occurs, in a much less striking way, in the ribonucleic acids of the two other members of the bromovirus group, brome mosaic virus and broad bean mottle virus. although spec ...1978643624
effect of some pesticides on the efficiency of the inoculated rhizobium associated with broad bean plants.the effect of some pesticides on the efficiency of the inoculated rhizobium in broad bean plants (vicia faba) was studied in greenhouse experiments. different pesticides were used in this work, including insecticides, herbicides, nematocides, and a molecide in different concentrations. the study revealed the following conclusions. application of insecticides in different concentrations generally affected the formation of efficient nodules on the root system of broad bean plants. the inhibitory e ...19761037049
purification of the glycoprotein lectin from the broad bean (vicia faba) and a comparison of its properties with lectins of similar specificity.1. the lectin from the broad bean (vicia faba) was purified by affinity chromatography by using 3-o-methylglucosamine covalently attached through the amino group to ch-sepharose (an omega-hexanoic acid derivative of agarose). its composition and the nature of its subunits were compared with concanavalin a and the lectins from pea and lentil. 2. unlike the other three lectins, broad-bean lectin is a glycoprotein; a glycopeptide containing glucosamine and mannose was isolated from a proteolytic di ...1976938471
[effects of technological processing on digestive and metabolic utilization of amino acids from various protein foods].the use of vegetable proteins such as legumes or oilseeds proteins is often restricted by antinutritional or toxic factors. therefore, it is usefull, in order to extend their consumption, to isolate proteins from most of the other components of the seeds. unfortunately, the technological processes may have some deleterious effects on the nutritive value of the proteins. moreover, the proteins isolates and concentrates need further processing to be texturated in order to look like conventional fo ...1978707919
