Genetic variability of sugarcane genotypes for red rot disease

Authors: M.S. Iqbal, B. Tabassum, M.F. Awan, M. Tariq, Q. Ali and I.A. Nasir

Sugarcane is a vital crop grown for sugar and sugary products. The importance of sugarcane has been increased greatly as many countries have started the biofuel production using sugarcane as a source. This crop suffers many diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Red rot is one of the major diseases which limit the yield every year. We have scree.. Read More»

Genetic variability for salt tolerance in maize seedlings

Authors: Tanzeel-ur-Rehman, Qurban Ali and Arif Malik

Maize is very sensitive for abiotic environmental stress conditions involving drought, heat and salt stress as important stress conditions. For this purpose a study was planned to conduct in greenhouse of Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, University of the Lahore to determine effects of salt stress on maize seedling growth. For our study w.. Read More»

Genetic studies for yield and related traits in micro and macrosperma exotic lentil genotypes

Authors: Ch. Muhammad Rafiq, Sadia Kaukab, Aqsa Tahir, Masood Qadir, Busharat Hussain, Shakeel Ahmad Anwar, Muhammad Tariq Mahmood, Ali Aziz, Amir Hameed and Khalid Mehmood Mughal

With respect to seed size lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus) species usually are distributed into two main groups namely Microsperma (<2.5 g/100-seeds) with small rounded seeds and Macrosperma (>2.5 g/100-seeds) with larger and more flattened seeds. The seeds/pod and pods/plant will decrease as the seed size increases that adversely affect the.. Read More»

Uncoupling Proteins and Cardiac Apoptosis in High Fat Diet-Fed Male Rats

Authors: K. Alsolami, Z. Alrefaie

This study aimed to assess impact of high fat diet (HFD) on cardiac apoptosis, and cardiac uncoupling proteins (UCPs) 2&3 expression. Twenty rats were fed either (45%) or (10%) fat diet for 6 months, then cardiac tissue expression of BAX, Bcl2, Fas, Fas-L (markers for apoptotic pathways) and UCP 2&3 were assessed. Results revealed enhancement of i.. Read More»
