  This investigation was conducted to compare Poa and Cynodon turfgrasses and their seed mixtures. In this research the turfgrasses Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L. ‘Merion’) and common bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon [L.] Pers.), in monoculture or in mixtures of 0 to 100%, based on number of seeds, were used. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L. ‘Barball’) (L) was used as control. The seeds were sown in October in 2005 and 2006 in southwest Iran with a dry and moderate climate. The experiment was conducted in a split-plot design with year as main plot and turfgrass types as subplot. The cultures were maintained as lawns and were mowed from 3 cm above the ground. The turfgrasses were compared by measuring visual quality after winter and summer, chlorophyll index after winter and summer, rooting depth, verdure and root fresh weight, tiller density, and clippings fresh weight. Poa monoculture had high tiller density, root fresh weight and total fresh weight. Lolium monoculture had high rooting depth after winter and clippings fresh weight. Cynodon monoculture quality was poor with regard to many characters, mainly due to fall sowing. The seed mixture composed of 40% Cynodon+60% Poa was the best treatment and resulted in the highest verdure fresh weight, chlorophyll index after winter and summer, visual quality after winter and summer, and established a good turf according to the other characters. This mixture can be used as an alternative in overseeding programmes in areas with soil and environmental conditions similar to the present research site.

  Sesame oil was evaluated in the treatment of in C57BL/6 mice. It has profound anti-inflammatory activity and been traditionally used to treat inflammatory disorders. EAE was induced by immunization of 6-8 week old mice with MOG35-55 with complete Freunds adjuvant. Therapy with sesame oil was started on day 3 before the immunization. Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC) was assessed by Ferric Reducing-antioxidant Power (FRAP) method. Nitric Oxide (NO) production was also estimated by Griess reaction. For histological analysis, mice brain was harvested and sections were stained with Hematoxylin-Eosin. After daily intraperitoneal dosage the sesame oil significantly reduced the clinical symptoms in C57BL/6 mice with EAE. Also, treated mice displayed a significantly delayed disease onset compared with control mice. Sesame oil significantly increased TAC, but it’s effect on serum nitrite production was not significant. Typical brain leukocyte infiltration was observed in control mice compared with treated mice. Present results suggest for the first time that sesame oil therapy may be effective in the prevention of symptomatic EAE. This resistance to encephalomyelitis may be associated with inhibition of oxidative stress.

  In this study, effect of ethanol extract of Saffron (Crocus sativus L.) in the treatment of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE) in C57BL/6 mice was evaluated. EAE was induced by immunization of 8 week old mice with MOG35-55 with complete Freunds adjuvant. Therapy with saffron was started on day the immunization. Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC) was assessed by Ferric Reducing-Antioxidant Power (FRAP) method. Nitric oxide (NO) production was also estimated by Griess reaction. For histological analysis, mice brain was harvested and sections were stained with Hematoxylin-Eosin. After daily oral dosage the saffron significantly reduced the clinical symptoms in C57BL/6 mice with EAE. Also, treated mice displayed a delayed disease onset compared with control mice. TAC production was significantly elevated in saffron treated mice. Effect of saffron on serum NO production was not significant. Typical spinal cord leukocyte infiltration was observed in control mice compared with saffron treated mice. These results suggest for the first time that saffron is effective in the prevention of symptomatic EAE by inhibition of oxidative stress and leukocyte infiltration to CNS and may be potentially useful for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

  One of the most common methods to prevent destruction of crops is using pesticides. Therefore, pollution of water sources by pesticides is considered as one of the environmental problems. One of the most widely used pesticides is Dursban, also known by its general name chlorpyrifos. This insecticide belongs to a group of organophosphorous insecticides with contact and digestive influences and little fumigation properties. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of Dursban on the laboratory mouse blood proteins. In this study, 48 female mice of Balb/C kind were tested by dividing into 6 groups. Control group and experimental groups 1-5, respectively received a dose of 0.03, 0.3, 3, 1.5 and 15 ppm of Dursban in daily drinking water for 31 days. At the end of the experiment, phlebotomies and samples were transferred to the laboratory. The obtained data was evaluated with SPSS software at probable level of p<0.05.
