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, ...
The second case of saposin a deficiency and altered autophagy
Krabbe disease is a lysosomal storage disease caused by galactosylceramidase deficiency, resulting in neurodegeneration with a rapid clinical downhill course within the first months of life in the classic infantile ...
Feature selection has a large impact on one-class classification accuracy for micrornas in plants
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2016)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short RNA sequences involved in posttranscriptional gene regulation. Their experimental analysis is complicated and, therefore, needs to be supplemented with computational miRNA detection. Currently ...
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 ...
Computational prediction of MicroRNAs from toxoplasma gondii potentially regulating the hosts' gene expression
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) were discovered two decades ago, yet there is still a great need for further studies elucidating their genesis and targeting in different phyla. Since experimental discovery and validation of miRNAs is ...
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. ...
Protective effects of polyamines against UV-A and UV-B illumination in Physcia semipinnata thalli
(Institute of Botany and Botanical Garden Jevremovac, 2017)
The damage to DNA induced by UV-A and UV-B and protective effects of the polyamines putrescine (put), spermidine (spd) and spermine (spm) were investigated on the lichen Physcia semipinnata in the present study. Our results ...
Water-soluble antioxidant potential of Turkish pepper cultivars
(American Society for Horticultural Science, 2008-06)
In this work, 29 pepper cultivars that represent the diversity of types and varieties grown in Turkey were analyzed for water-soluble antioxidant capacity and phenolic and vitamin C contents. In addition, 14 non-Turkish ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
