  Three chromium resistant bacterial strains originally isolated from chromium-contaminated wastewater, were tested in the field experiments for the growth promotion of Helianthus annuus in the presence of different chromium salts. Much reduction in seed germination was observed under Cr(VI) stress but all bacterial strains promoted seed germination with respect to non-inoculated control. Inoculation increased plant length in sunflower by 14 to 26%. Sunflower plants showed medium and high increases in their fresh weight in response to inoculation with these strains. Inoculation with these strains increased dry weight up to 15% as compared to non-inoculated control. The contribution of the strains to promote auxin content in these plants varied from 88% when sunflower plants were inoculated with strain CrT-6, to 174% when strain CrM-6 was used. All the three strains showed similar effects in respect to chromium accumulation when supplied with 300 μg g-1 of K2CrO4.

  Short stature may be the normal expression of genetic potential, in which case the growth rate is normal, or it may be the result of a condition causing growth failure with a lower-than-normal growth rate. Short stature and puberty failure are primary characteristic of Turner Syndrome. The study was aimed to find out the chromosomal compliment of girls with suspected turner, having short stature and failure of puberty as phenotypic manifestations. Karyotype analysis was performed in 25 patients by standard procedures, using metaphase chromosome preparations from phytohemagglutinin stimulated blood lymphocytes. In each individual, conventional G-banding was also performed to obtain high resolution of banding pattern. 50% of the girls showed X-chromosome monosomy (45XO karyotype), 35% showed mosaicism 45XO/46XX and 10% showed structural abnormalities of X-chromosome, while 5% of the girls showed normal karyotype.
