Longer water retention in ponds increases nitrogen-removal processes

Nutrient removal processes in ponds and the influence of size, shape and other physical characteristics are reported by researchers at Okayama University, Hiroshima University and the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization in Hiroshima in Japan.

Molecular and structural light adjustments protect plants

Miho Yoshioka-Nishimura at Okayama University summarises the latest progress in understanding at the molecular level how plants respond to changes in light conditions.

Lavender oil may offer a new treatment for murine models of allergic asthma

In studies using mice researchers at Okayama University demonstrate the therapeutic effects of lavender essential for treating asthma.

Links discovered between plant complex type N-glycans and hay fever

Okayama University researchers identify plants expressing substantial amounts of a nitrogen-linked polysaccharide – plant complex type N-glycans – which is linked to allergic responses in mammals, and may provide useful study models for understanding hay fever.
