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)
(European IOS Press, 2002)
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 ...
Conservation of gene function in the Solanaceae as revealed by comparative mapping of domestication traits in eggplant
(Genetics Society of America, 2002-08)
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) for domestication-related traits were identified in an interspecific F2 population of eggplant (Solanum linnaeanum × S. melongena). Although 62 quantitative trait loci (QTL) were identified ...
Homofermentative lactic acid bacteria of a traditional cheese, Comlek peyniri from Cappadocia region
(Cambridge University Press, 2005-02)
Comlek peyniri is a typical artisanal cheese in Central Anatolia. This type of cheese was made by using the indigenous lactic acid bacteria (LAB) flora of cow or ewes' milk. Majority of the samples were taken from fresh ...
