Tracking the evolutionary history of polyploidy in Fragaria L. (strawberry): new insights from phylogenetic analyses of low-copy nuclear genes.
Phylogenetic utility of two nuclear genes (GBSSI-2 and DHAR) was explored in genus Fragaria in order to clarify phylogenetic relationships among taxa and to elucidate the origin of the polyploidExpand

Clustering of halophytes from an inland salt marsh in Turkey according to their ability to accumulate sodium and nitrogenous osmolytes
Abstract Fifty-one species belonging to 16 families of halophytes have been collected in salty areas surrounding the Seyfe Lake in Central Anatolia (Turkey). Their plant/sodicity relationships andExpand

A Reassessment of the Function of the So-Called Compatible Solutes in the Halophytic Plumbaginaceae Limonium latifolium1[W][OA]
The compatible solute hypothesis posits that maintaining osmotic equilibrium under conditions of high salinity requires synthesis of organic compounds, uptake of potassium ions, and partial exclusionExpand

Molecular phylogeny, diversification and character evolution in Lupinus (Fabaceae) with special attention to Mediterranean and African lupines
Abstract. Phylogenetic relationships within the complex genus Lupinus are estimated from internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences of the nuclear ribosomal DNA repeat. The molecular data supportsExpand

Erratum From—Polyploid Evolution in Spartina: Dealing with Highly Redundant Hybrid Genomes
Polyploidy and recurrent interspecific hybridization represent major features of Spartina evolution, resulting in several superimposed divergent genomes that coexist in the currently living species.Expand

The evolutionary fate of the chloroplast and nuclear rps16 genes as revealed through the sequencing and comparative analyses of four novel legume chloroplast genomes from Lupinus
Abstract The Fabaceae family is considered as a model system for understanding chloroplast genome evolution due to the presence of extensive structural rearrangements, gene losses and localizedExpand

Characterization of the two arginine decarboxylase (polyamine biosynthesis) paralogues of the endemic subantarctic cruciferous species Pringlea antiscorbutica and analysis of their differential
Arginine decarboxylase (ADC) is a key enzyme involved in the synthesis of polyamines, which have been implicated in developmental processes and stress responses in higher plants. An ancestral ADCExpand

Genome-wide distribution and potential regulatory functions of AtATE, a novel family of miniature inverted-repeat transposable elements in Arabidopsis thaliana
Abstract. A study of transgenic promoter::β-glucuronidase lines showed that the promoters of the two Arabidopsis ARGININE DECARBOXYLASE paralogues, ADC1 and ADC2, exhibited extremely differentExpand

The first complete chloroplast genome of the Genistoid legume Lupinus luteus: evidence for a novel major lineage-specific rearrangement and new insights regarding plastome evolution in the legume
BACKGROUND AND AIMS To date chloroplast genomes are available only for members of the non-protein amino acid-accumulating clade (NPAAA) Papilionoid lineages in the legume family (i.e. Millettioids,Expand
