MicroRNA398 targets two Cu/Zn superoxide dismutases (CSD1 and CSD2) in higher plants. Previous investigations revealed both decreased miR398 expression during high Cu(2+) or paraquat stress and increased expression under low Cu(2+) or high sucrose in the growth medium. Here, we show that additional abiotic stresses such as ozone and salinity also affect(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA)-guided target RNA expression is vital for a wide variety of biological processes in eukaryotes. Currently, miRBase (version 13) lists 142 and 353 miRNAs from Arabidopsis and rice (Oryza sativa), respectively. The integration of miRNAs in diverse biological networks relies upon the confirmation of their RNA targets. In contrast with the(More)
Current checkpointing techniques employed to overcome faults for HPC applications result in inferior application performance after restart from a checkpoint for a number of applications. This is due to a lack of page and core affinity awareness of the checkpoint/restart (C/R) mechanism, i.e., application tasks originally pinned to cores may be restarted on(More)
The extent of intra-individual and intra-species heterogeneity in the nuclear rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) was investigated among the 'Asiatic Vigna' species (subgenus Ceratotropis). High intra- and inter-individual ITS polymorphism was observed among Vigna radiata accessions, where multiple ITS length variants ranging from approximately 700 to(More)
Molecular phylogeny among species belonging to subgenus Vigna (genus Vigna) was inferred based on internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences of 18S-5.8S-26S ribosomal RNA gene unit. Analysis showed a total of 356 polymorphic sites of which approximately 80% were parsimony informative. Phylogenetic reconstruction by neighbor joining and maximum parsimony(More)
Pandanus amaryllifolius is cultivated in home gardens in coastal regions of India. Leaves of P. amaryllifolius are scented and exploited commercially by flavour industry. In the present attempt, 40 clonal populations were used for genetic diversity assessment using ISSR and AFLP molecular marker. In ISSR based diversity analysis, out of 38 scorable primers,(More)
Social networks have been extensively studied in recent years with the aim of understanding how the connectivity of different societies and their subgroups influences the spread of innovations and opinions through human networks. Using data collected from real-world social networks, researchers are able to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of such(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Intra-species hybridization and incompletely homogenized ribosomal RNA repeat units have earlier been reported in 21 accessions of Vigna unguiculata from six subspecies using internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and 5S intergenic spacer (IGS) analyses. However, the relationships among these accessions were not clear from these analyses. We(More)
