Resistance to antibiotics mediated by selectable marker genes remains a powerful selection tool for transgenic event production. However, regulatory agencies and consumer concerns favor these to be eliminated from food crops. Several excision systems exist but none have been optimized or shown to be functional for clonally propagated crops. The excision of(More)
Candidate traits for drought tolerance were targeted by analyzing water stress responses in two moderately drought-tolerant native Andean potato clones, SA2563 and Sullu (Solanum tuberosum L. subsp, andigena (Juz, Bukasov) Hawkes) under field conditions. SA2563 exhibited increased root growth under drought, while Sullu retained a higher relative leaf water(More)
Six potato varieties belonging to four different sub-species were submitted to drought stress during tuberization under controlled field conditions, resulting in contrasting responses of the genotypes to water stress with yield losses varying between 27 and 75%. In all clones free proline accumulated under drought, however, proline levels increased earlier(More)
Solanum tuberosum cultivars, Solanum tuberosum × Solanum tuberosum subsp. andigena hybrids and breeding clones with different time to maturity were screened for drought tolerance in field plots located in the coastal desert of Peru. Variation for drought tolerance was illustrated by clone-dependent differences in tuber yield and yield loss under drought(More)
Background. In March 2010, ANSM (Agence Nationale de Sécurité du Medicament), the French Medical Regulatory Authority, withdrew Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) breast implants from the market due to the use of non-medical-grade silicone gel. The aim of this study was to compare the removal rate (and reasons thereof) of breast implants produced by different(More)
BACKGROUND Axillary lymphadenectomy for primary breast cancer produces a non-negligible rate of postoperative lymphorrhea, prolonged hospital stays, and multiple seroma punctures. We evaluated the impact of low-thrombin fibrin sealant glue on surgical wounds in patients undergoing axillary lymph node dissection for breast cancer. METHODS We conducted an(More)
