  hva1, a barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) group III Late Embryogenesis Abundant (LEA) protein, is highly induced by various stresses and has successfully been used to confer stable tolerance to abiotic stresses such as drought and salinity in several transgenic plant species. In the present study, the hva1 gene from some Syrian barley varieties was isolated, characterized and then cloned into the monocot.-specific binary vector pAHC25 to enable transformation of crops for drought tolerance. The 3-day-old seedlings of several Syrian barley varieties were subjected to different stress treatments (Abscisic acid, (ABA) drought, salt and cold) for gene expression studies. Complementary DNA (cDNA) was synthesized from isolated RNA using hva1 homologous primers for amplification of 788 bp. The eluted DNA band was analysed and sequenced, the obtained sequence was blast using N-blast of NCBI. The results showed similarities between 80 and 98% to accession number: X78205. The coding region of 642 bp was cloned resulting in pAHC25-ubi1-hva1-nos construct. This construct was then transferred into two Agrobacterium strains, i.e., LBA4404 and EHA105 for transgenic crop improvement mainly to target improved stress tolerance in crops such as wheat, cotton and maize.

  News sources are the main important element in news reporting as its function is to ensure that the particular news content is reliable and can be trusted. Thus, this empirical study generally intends to identify the pattern of the news sources used to report on special issues on Islam and Muslims predominantly in Malaysia and Indonesia. This study was conducted by selecting the Wall Street Journal and the Telegraph newspapers as samples for the study. The news samples have been selected from 2012 until 2014. The objectives of this study are to see the pattern of news sources used by these two newspapers and also to compare the sources used within the chosen time frame of the study. The data was collected based on the preliminary study and a total of 445 news paragraphs have been analysed through NVivo 8. However, only 186 of news paragraph mentioned its news sources. The findings presented that 149 of news paragraph used official sources which have been classified into media, institutional, leader and minister. While, only 37 news paragraphs used unofficial sources which consists of civilian, activist, witnesses and victims. From this preliminary data, it can be said that both of the newspapers quoted the news from official sources compared to unofficial sources to report issues relates to Islam and Muslims in Malaysia and Indonesia.
