      Rowland, Ronelle (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The aims of this study were (1) to determine whether N03- orNH4+ nutrition could influence the effect of Al on N12 and N19 sugarcane plants grown in sand or hydroponic medium and (2) to assess whether ...

    • Mutation screening of pre-eclampsia candidate genes, LEP (ob) and LEPR (obR). 

      Hoek, Kim G.P. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
      Pre-eclampsia is a multisystemic disorder with an incidence of ~6-8% in non-Caucasian women in the Western Cape. Trophoblast invasion is vital for adequate anchorage of the placenta to the uterine wall as well as for the ...

    • Molecular characterisation of the commercially important Agathosma species 

      Husselmann, Lizex H. H. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
      The development of a reliable and reproducible method for the genetic characterisation and identification of the commercially important Agathosma species was investigated. Previous research attempts aimed at developing a ...

    • Manipulation of pyrophosphate fructose 6-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase activity in sugarcane 

      Groenewald, Jan-Hendrik (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
      The main aim of the work presented in this thesis was to elucidate the apparent role of pyrophosphate fructose 6-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase (PFP) in sucrose accumulation in sugarcane. PFP activity in sugarcane ...

    • The manipulation of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate levels in sugarcane 

      Hiten, Nicholas Fletcher (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
      Fructose 2,6-bisphosphate (Fru 2,6-P2) is an important regulatory molecule in plant carbohydrate metabolism. There were three main objectives in this study. Firstly, to determine whether the recombinant rat 6-phosphofructo ...
