Comparative genetics of crop plant domestication and evolution
Domesticated species differ from their wild ancestors and relatives for a set of traits that is known as the domestication syndrome. The most important syndrome traits include growth habit, flowering time, seed dispersal, ...
Isolation and characterization of Bacillus thuringiensis strains from different grain habitats in Turkey
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium and it produces insecticidal crystal (cry) proteins during sporulation. Because the genetic diversity and toxic potential of Bt strains differ from ...
Organogenesis from transformed tomato explants
(Humana Press, 2005)
Tomato was one of the first crops for which a genetic transformation system was reported involving regeneration by organogenesis from Agrobacterium-transformed explants. Since the initial reports, various factors have been ...
QTL analysis of morphological traits in eggplant and implications for conservation of gene function during evolution of solanaceous species
An interspecific F2 population from a cross between cultivated eggplant, Solanum melongena, and its wild relative, S. linnaeanum, was analyzed for quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting leaf, flower, fruit and plant traits. ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)

Docetaxel/zoledronic acid combination triggers apoptosis synergistically through downregulating antiapoptotic Bcl-2 protein level in hormone-refractory prostate cancer cells
Docetaxel, a semi-synthetic taxane analogue, is used effectively in the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer. Zoledronic acid, the most potent member of bisphosphonates, has shown pleiotropic anti-tumoral effects on ...
Erratum: Protective effect of zinc on cyclophosphamide-induced hematoxicity and urotoxicity: (Biol Trace Elem Res (2008) 126 (186-193) DOI 10.1007/s12011-008-8189-5)
(Humana Press, 2009-03)
The original version of this article unfortunately contained a mistake. The Materials and Methods section should include last paragraph. Section “Materials and Methods”, inclusion of the last paragraph should read: Only ...
RFLP of 16S-ITS rDNA region to differentiate Lactobacilli at species level
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2004)
The 16S-ITS (internal transcribed spacer) region of the rrn operon was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The amplification products were analysed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) using a set ...
Methionine sulfoxide reduction and the aging process
Aging has been described for multicellular and asymmetrically dividing organisms, but the mechanisms are poorly understood. Oxidation of proteins is considered to be one of the major factors that leads to aging. Oxidative ...
Evidence for a stabilizer element in the untranslated regions of Drosophila glutathione S-transferase D1 mRNA
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2002-09)
The neighboring genes gstD1 and gstD21 share 70% sequence identity, gstD1 encodes a 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis-(P-chlorophenyl)ethane dehydrochlorinase; gstD21, a ligandin. Both of their mRNAs are inducible by pentobarbital ...
