Characterization of Genetic Diversity and Linkage Disequilibrium of ZmNAC33 in Maize

Authors: Wenping Liu, Chunxiao Zhang, Shufang Li, Fengxue Jin, Wanjun Li, Xiaohui Li

The maize NAC gene, encoding a NAC domain transcription factor, plays vital roles in the growth process of maize under abiotic stresses. To investigate the response of ZmNAC33 to salinity stress, we analyzed the expression of the ZmNAC33 gene in roots and leaves of three-leaf stage seedlings among maize inbred lines. The resul..

Genetics Analysis of the Biggest Cashew Tree in the World

Authors: F.P.M. do Amaral, G.H. de Sá, L.A. Filgueiras, F.S. Santos Filho, C.J.R. Santos Soares, M.P.M. do Amaral, S.E. dos Santos Valente, A. N. Mendes

This study performed a genetic study of several canopies of Anacardium occidentale L. specimen called "Cashew King" (Cajueiro da Praia-PI, Brazil) in order to assess whether all canopies belong to the same plant. Leaves were collected from  different distant points, and preserved for analysis of DNA. The analysi.. Read More»

Generic relationships among Molluginaceae inferred from a molecular phylogenetic analysis of the matK gene

Authors: M.A. Ali, J. Lee and F. Al-Hemaid

The family Molluginaceae (order Caryophyllales) is considered polyphyletic based on the photosynthetic pathway, C4 evolution, and phylogeny of the family. This inference was made based on photosynthetic, anatomical, and molecular datasets. The generic circumscription of this family has greatly been changed owing to the placeme.. Read More»

Evaluation of mutagenic, teratogenic, and immunomodulatory effects of Annona nutans hydromethanolic fraction on pregnant mice

Authors: C.A. Gonçalves, N.L. Silva, M.O. Mauro, N. David, A.L. Cunha-Laura, S.A. Auharek, A.C.D. Monreal, M.C. Vieira, D.B. Silva, F.J.L. Santos, J.M. Siqueira and R.J. Oliveira

Plants such as Annona nutans used in folk medicine have a large number of biologically active compounds with pharmacological and/or toxic potential. Moreover, pregnant women use these plants indiscriminately, mainly in the form of teas, without being aware of the harm that they could cause to the health of the embryo/fetus. Th.. Read More»

Effects of exogenous 5-aminolevulinic acid on PIP1 and NIP aquaporin gene expression in seedlings of cucumber cultivars subjected to salinity stress

Authors: F. Yan, D. Qu, Y.Y. Zhao, X.H. Hu, Z.Y. Zhao, Y. Zhang and Z.R. Zou

Aquaporins play a direct role in plant water relation under salt stress, but the effects of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) on aquaporin gene expression in salt-treated plants remain unknown. This study investigated the potential effects of exogenous ALA (50 mg/dm3) on aquaporin expression levels under salt stress (75 mM NaCl) in .. Read More»

Characterization of allele-specific expression of the X-linked gene MAO-A in trophectoderm cells of bovine embryos produced by somatic cell nuclear transfer

Authors: A.R. Ferreira, L.F.C. Aguiar Filho, R.V. Sousa, R. Sartori and M.M. Franco

Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) may affect epigenetic mechanisms and alter the expression of genes related to embryo development and X chromosome inactivation (XCI). We characterized allele-specific expression of the X-linked gene monoamine oxidase type A (MAO-A) in the trophectoderm (TF) of embryos produced by SCNT. Tota.. Read More»

Protective mechanism of quercetin on acute myocardial infarction in rats

Authors: B. Li M. Yang J.W. Liu G.T. Yin

To investigate the protective mechanism of quercetin on acute myocardial infarction (AMI) rats, an AMI rat model was established by ligating the left coronary anterior descending branch. The rats were randomly divided into the model group and low- and high-dose quercetin groups. The control group comprised sham-operated rats. The rats in the low- and high.. Read More»

Gene silencing during development ofin vitro-produced female bovine embryos

Authors: G.K.F. Merighe, F.H. Biase, W.K.F. Santos-Biase, M.S. Miranda,T.H.C. de Bem, Y.F. Watanabe and F.V. Meirelles

In early development, female embryos (XX) produce twice the transcripts of X-linked genes compared with male embryos (XY). Dur­ing the course of development, inactivation of the X chromosome equili­brates gene dosage, making the development of female embryos viable. Moreover, the biotechnologies used for producing embr..

Casearia grandiflora (Salicaceae) is a typical Cerrado species adapted to disturbed environments, making it useful for restoration projects. Knowledge of genetic diversity is important for establishing conservation strategies for this species. This study aimed to compare chloroplast haplotype diversity and structure of C. gran..

Authors: N.H. Kim, S.J. Lim, H.M. Chae and Y.C. Park

We sequenced and characterized the complete mitogenome (KX964606) of the Amur hedgehog Erinaceus amurensis to provide more data for comparative mitogenomics of the genus Erinaceus (Erinaceidae). The mitogenome of E. amurensis is a circular molecule 16,941 bp long, consisting of a control region and a conserved set of 37 genes .. Read More»
