The role of ethylene on inducing plant resistance or susceptibility to certain fungal pathogens clearly depends on the plant pathogen interaction with little or no-information available focused on the apple-Penicillium interaction. Taken advantage that Penicillium expansum is the compatible pathogen and P. digitatum is the non-host of apples, the present study aimed at deciphering how each Penicillium spp. could interfere in the fruit ethylene biosynthesis at the biochemical and molecular level. The infection capacity and different aspects related to the ethylene biosynthesis were conducted at different times post-inoculation...

The climacteric is the last stage of the evolving life of women between the fertile period and its completion. The climacteric process in every woman has different manifestations in relation to their own history, their health and culture to which they belong. Traditionally the menopause has been linked with depression; we today consider it as a vital crisis which brings new possibilities, including motherhood. The changes during the 20th century in the status of women, the increase in longevity and reproductive techniques suggest motherhood is possible beyond the limits imposed by biology...

BACKGROUND: Climateric is a phase of women's life marked by the transition from the reproductive to the non-reproductive period. In addition to overall weight gain, the menopause is also associated with the increase of abdominal fat. We used The Healthy Eating Index as a summary measure to evaluate the major components and the quality of women's diet after the onset of the menopause. This study aims at examining the association between the quality of the diet and cardiometabolic risk factors in postmenopausal women...

Strawberry is a non-climateric fleshy fruit, which softens quickly and has short post-harvest life. Ripening is associated with an increment of pectin solubility and a reduction of the content of hemicelluloses. In this work, we have cloned the full-length cDNA encoding a β-xylosidase (FaXyl1) from Fragaria×ananassa and we have characterized its expression in two strawberry cultivars with contrasting fruit firmness. The analysis of the predicted protein showed that FaXyl1 is closely related to other β-xylosidases from higher plants...

BACKGROUND: Climateric is considered to be a natural phase of life which by definition is the period of life starting from decline in ovarian activity until after the end of ovarian function. It is accompanied by various health consequences that include the changes in saliva too. This study was carried out to evaluate the salivary flow rate, pH, buffering capacity in pre-menopausal, post-menopausal and post-menopausal women on HRT. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: (1) To evaluate the salivary flow rate, pH of resting saliva and stimulated saliva and buffer capacity of stimulated saliva in pre-menopausal, post-menopausal and post-menopausal women on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)...

BACKGROUND: Pomegranate (PG) is a drought resistant crop, thriving well with scarce water resources. The non-climateric character of PG remarks the importance of determining the optimum harvest time to improve quality and phytochemical properties of PG. RESULTS: The influence of two different irrigation treatments on physico-chemical and phytochemical parameters of PG was assessed. Control trees (T0) were over irrigated (105% ETo). From the beginning of the second half of rapid fruit growth period to the last harvest, T1 plants were subjected to sustained deficit irrigation (33% ETo)...

Estrogenic deficiency of menopause is not only responsible to the precocious occurrence of climateric troubles but exposes at increased risk of osteoporosis, metabolic troubles, and cardiovascular complications. We believed for a long time that the hormonal treatment prescription could prevent cardiovascular risk. Then, initial analysis of the great controlled study WHI and HERS causes unfavorable judgment of overall risk-benefit balance evaluation. However, the situation isn't so contrasted, and many arguments are in favor of vascular benefit with hormonal replacement therapy (HRT)...

Vasomotor symptoms are one of the main reasons for climateric women to consult a physician. Hormone therapy is the first treatment choice, but it is not indicated to all patients. Veralipride is an option for those who cannot or will not try hormone treatment. The Mexican Association for the Study of Climateric (AMEC) assembled an interdisciplinary group of medical experts so that they revised the medical literature on the subject and reached a consensus on veralipride indication, doses, counterindications and safety...

In contrast to climacteric fruits, where ethylene is known to be pivotal, the regulation of ripening in non-climacteric fruits is not well understood. In the non-climacteric strawberry (Fragaria anannassa), auxin and abscisic acid (ABA) are thought to be important, but the roles of other hormones suggested to be involved in fruit development and ripening are not clear. Here changes in the levels of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), ABA, GA1, and castasterone from anthesis to fully ripened fruit are reported. The levels of IAA and GA1 rise early in fruit development before dropping to low levels prior to colour accumulation...

BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis is one of the most important public health problems involving a high percentage of costs in the medical care system. Reliable diagnostic techniques for an early detection of bone deterioration and studies of factors that influence its development in menopausal women are crucial. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between bone microarchitecture and anthropometry in climacteric women. METHODS: Women were recruited at the Menopause Clinic, University Hospital of FMRP/USP, and submitted to anthropometry and to the evaluation of bone quality (Ultrasound Bone Profile Index, UBPI) and quantity (Amplitudedependent Speed of Sound, AD-SoS-) by phalangeal quantitative osteosonography (DBM Sonic BP)...

'Miali' and 'Caddina' are apple varieties of Sardinian germplasm, mainly produced under sustainable conditions. Fruit is rarely subjected to cold storage and postharvest losses are generally high. In order to prolong the marketing period and contain postharvest decay of these local varieties, we investigated on their storage behaviour and on the efficacy of combined alternative postharvest treatments. Pre-climateric fruit was harvested and immersed for 0 (control), 15, 30, 45 or 60 sec. in water at 20, 50, 55 or 60 degrees C with or without 2% (W/V) NaHCO3 (SBC)...

The aim of this paper is to develop applications of Orem's Theory of Self Care in order to address nursing interventions during pregnancy and menopause, and to determine its usefulness as a theoretical framework for addressing self care during stages of development. It is concluded that the application by nurses and midwives of this theoretical framework, in assisting women during pregnancy and menopause, contributes to identifying the requirements of self care, the required interventions, necessity of self care and the methods of assistance that women require with special emphasis on training and development of self care procedures...

In this work, four cDNA clones (Pd-ACS1,AJ890088; Pd-ETR1 and Pd-ERS1, AJ890092, AJ890091; and Pd-CTR1, AJ890089) encoding an ACC-synthase, two putative ethylene (ET) receptors, and a putative MAPKKK, respectively, were isolated and phylogenetically characterized in Prunus domestica L. subsp. insititia. Their expression was studied by real-time PCR during flower (closed, open and senescent) and fruit (early green, late green, maturation and ripening) development of damson plum, which is climateric. While two peaks of ET production were quantified at early green and ripening stages in whole fruits, the seed was not able to produce it during maturation and ripening stages...

This study approached the practice of self care lived by the women that suffer with high blood pressure. Descriptive-exploratory study which was inspired on the Orem's self-care theory and developed with 200 women who presented high blood pressure at a Public Health Agency, located in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil. The data were collected during nursing encounters, organized in categories, and analyzed according to the fundaments of the referred Theory. In this surveyed sample, about 172 (86%) women found out that they had high blood pressure problems by means of signs and symptoms related to the "climateric"...
