Out of Borneo: biogeography, phylogeny and divergence date estimates of Artocarpus (Moraceae)
Background and Aims The breadfruit genus (Artocarpus, Moraceae) includes valuable underutilized fruit tree crops with a centre of diversity in Southeast Asia. It belongs to the monophyletic tribeExpand
Ethnobotany of the Genus Piper (Piperaceae) in Thailand
Thailand is located in the tropical rain forest zone above the equator. This geographically supports very rich biodiversity, including the genus Piper (Piperaceae). Thirty-eight species of Piper,Expand
Screening of plants acting against Heterometrus laoticus scorpion venom activity on fibroblast cell lysis.
The aqueous extracts of 64 plant species, listed as animal- or insect-bite antidotes in old Thai drug recipes were screened for their activity against fibroblast cell lysis after HeterometrusExpand
Chromosomal evolution in naked catfishes (Bagridae, Siluriformes): A comparative chromosome mapping study
We analyzed the distribution of repetitive DNA sequences on the chromosomes of nine species of the Bagridae from Thailand, i.e., Hemibagrus filamentus; H. nemurus; H. wyckii; H. wyckioides; MystusExpand
Genetic analysis for identification, genomic template stability in hybrids and barcodes of the Vanda species (Orchidaceae) of Thailand
Molecular data supporting morphological characters for identification and specific markers for ornamental Vanda species in Thailand can be achieved for economic means. The ten native Thai speciesExpand
Heteromtoxin (HmTx), a novel heterodimeric phospholipase A(2) from Heterometrus laoticus scorpion venom.
Heteromtoxin (HmTx) is a group III phospholipase A(2) produced in Heterometrus laoticus, in Thailand. In this study, HmTx was purified from venom by separation chromatography, and the PLA(2) activityExpand
Genomic Organization of Repetitive DNA Elements and Its Implications for the Chromosomal Evolution of Channid Fishes (Actinopterygii, Perciformes)
Channid fishes, commonly referred to as “snakeheads”, are currently very important in Asian fishery and aquaculture due to the substantial decline in natural populations because of overexploitation.Expand
RAPD and barcode analyses of groupers of the genus Epinephelus.
The diversity of Epinephelus species was investigated throughout Thailand. Random amplified polymorphic DNA successfully produced 1300 bands that were phylogenetically informative and used toExpand
Purification and characterization of Heteroscorpine-1 (HS-1) toxin from Heterometrus laoticus scorpion venom.
Crude venom from Thai giant scorpion, Heterometrus laoticus, most commonly found in the northeastern area of Thailand, was evaluated for PD50 (paralytic dose 50) activities from abdominal injectionExpand
Genetic relationships of langur species using AFLP markers.
Cytogenetic studies of five langur species using conventional banding pattern were investigated. All species studied have an identical number of 44 diploid chromosomes, they are assumed to haveExpand
