Genetic inheritance of traits relating to seedling and size in ornamental pepper

Pepper exhibits genetic diversity and versatility in use. Knowledge of the genetic control of traits in peppers is of great importance to breeding programs given the variety of types, sizes, colors and flavors. The aim of the present study was to examine the inheritance of seedling and plant traits in ornamental pepper (Capsicum annuum). The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse in the plant..

Genetic diversity, agronomic potential and reaction to downy mildew in genotypes of biofortified mini lettuce

Lettuce is one of the most consumed leaf vegetables in the world, highlighting itself as a novelty in the market as mini type cultivars. During the winter the downy mildew can lead to severe damage. Thus, the objective of this work was to evaluate the genetic diversity, agronomic potential and downy mildew reaction in biofortified mini lettuce genotypes. The experiment was carried out in the Un.. Read More»

Glioblastoma in a 20-year-old female patient after Chikungunya infection

We describe the case of a 20-year-old female patient who died 4 months after the diagnosis of a glioblastoma (GBM). The tumor emerged nearly a month after a Chikungunya (CHIKV) infection and displayed positivity to Citomegalovirus (CMV) DNA. The immunohistochemical studies revealed GFAP positivity in rare cells, IDH-1 positive, vimentin positive, ATRX positive, Ki-67 positive in 35% of neoplast.. Read More»

Super Canola: Newly Developed High Yielding, Lodging and Drought Tolerant Double Zero Cultivar of Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

The aim of present research was to develop a high yielding rapeseed cultivar having good quantitative and qualitative characteristics under the scenario of climate change. The research was initiated during 2005 and successfully completed during 2018 by Oilseeds Research Institute, Faisalabad Pakistan. Super Canola (RBN-13018) is an outcome of hybridization (Rainbow × RBN-03052) in 2005-06.. Read More»

Diabetes mellitus types: Key genetic determinants and risk assessment

The characteristic symptom of diabetes is consistently elevated levels of blood sugar. This is instigated either by complete lack of insulin production (type 1 diabetes), reduced level of insulin production (type 2 diabetes) or insulin resistance (inability of body cells to take up glucose). Other types of diabetes include maturity onset of diabetes of the young (MODY), a form of type 2 diabete.. Read More»

Adrenomedullin gene polymorphisms (rs4399321A/G and rs4910118C/T) in pregnancy related disorder: Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia (PE), a pregnancy specific vascular disorder which is characterized by hypertension and proteinuria is a leading cause of maternal, fetal/neonatal morbidity and mortality affecting 5-14% of pregnancies. PE is a multifactorial disorder associated with poor placentation, placental hypoxia, poor angiogenesis and excessive maternal inflammation. Adrenomedullin (ADM) is a multi.. Read More»

Exome Sequencing Studies for Kids with Non-Familial Food Allergy

Introduction: Food allergies (FA) have been increasing dramatically over the past 25 years and the peanut allergy has been noticed more likely for a half-decade as well. The prevalence of FA in children was found to be 10%, which is high compared with adults. Limited periodic reports are available of numerous food allergic reactions in children. Complete exome sequencing in thi.. Read More»

Novel polymorphisms in the PLIN2 gene of Nellore cattle

Genetic variations in genes involved in lipid storage, which also may interfere with important phenotypic traits such as intramuscular fat deposition in cattle, can represent useful markers in marker assisted selection programs. An important candidate gene is perilipin 2 (PLIN2) that plays a role in the capture of long chain fatty acids and in the formation and stabilization of lipid d.. Read More»

Genetic diversity analysis of Mongolian native cattle and other cattle breeds based on microsatellite marker

In this study, we used genetic diversity analysis with Microsatellite (MS) markers to determine the relationships between two Mongolian native breeds (MNB) (n=78) which were compared with three foreign breeds (FB) (n=110) in Mongolia. For the analysis of genetic diversity, 11 recommended MS markers from a diversity panel conducted by the ISAG / FAO or previously reported MS markers were used. A.. Read More»
