https://doi.org/10.22034/jtae.2021.120513

Abstract
  Recent advances in technology and the construction of new spacecraft have paved the way for a more detailed study of plants under real space conditions. The study of the growth and development of plants in space began in the 1950s by the Russians and the Americans. In the 1970s, the first plant experiments ...  Read More

Effect of Microgravity on Nucleolar Protein Contents and Regulation of Plant Cell Division

Halimeh Hassanpour

Volume 4, Issue 4 , February 2021, , Pages 19-11

Abstract
  Living organisms have evolved in the presence of constant gravity (1g) on Earth and their growth is related to rate of ribosome, protein biosynthesis, and regulation of cell cycle phases. Microgravity does not have the same effects on different phases of cell cycle such that activity of some phases is ...  Read More

Study of Cellular and Molecular Responses in Plants under Microgravity

Halimeh Hassanpour; Roghayeh Pourhabibian

Volume 3, Issue 4 , July 2020, , Pages 57-65

Abstract
  Plant study in space under microgravity condition is a very important goal in sending alive animals and human beings to space. Gravity modulates plant growth and its development and these processes are influenced by the balance between cell proliferation and differentiation in meristems. Regulation of ...  Read More

An Overview of Changes in Immune System in Space and Microgravity Conditions

Maryam Salavatifar

Volume 1, Issue 3 , March 2018, , Pages 1-10

Abstract
  The immune system is a complex network of biological structures and processes that by reducing its function or slightly modifying any of its aspects can increase the risk of disease. Research suggests that gravity changes cause alterations in the immune system. This could also lead to conditions where ...  Read More
