Chromate (Cr) decreases the growth of Spirodela polyrhiza. The fronds lost their pigments. The O2 evolution was also decreased. The Cr effect was found to be dose dependent. The toxic effects of Cr have further been studied on the photosynthetic activity of Spirodela polyrhiza by means of the chlorophyll a (Chl a) fluorescence transient O-J-I-P. The Chl a(More)
Chlorophyll (Chl) a fluorescence transient, a sensitive and non-invasive probe of the kinetics and heterogeneity of the filling up of the electron acceptor pool of Photosystem II (PS II), was used to characterize D1-mutants of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Using a shutter-less system (Plant Efficiency Analyzer, Hansatech, UK), which provides the first measured(More)
Four microsatellite-enriched genomic libraries for CA(15), GA(15), AAG(8) and ATG(8) repeats and transcriptome sequences of five cDNA libraries of Gossypium herbaceum were explored to develop simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. A total of 428 unique clones from repeat enriched genomic libraries were mined for 584 genomic SSRs (gSSRs). In addition, 99,780(More)
The cyanobacterium, Fischerella muscicola, produces a secondary metabolite named fischerellin A (FS) that strongly inhibits the growth of cyanobacteria and other photosynthetic organisms. The compound exhibits a unique structure and is composed of two cyclic amines and a C15 substituent that contains a double bond in the (Z) configuration and two triple(More)
A total of 26,685 unutilized public domain expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of Arachis hypogaea L. were analyzed to give a total of 4442 EST-SSRs, in which 517 ESTs contained more than one simple sequence repeat (SSR). Of these EST-SSRs, 2542 were mononucleotide repeats (MNRs), 803 were dinucleotide repeats (DNRs), 1043 were trinucleotide repeats (TNRs), 40(More)
Microarrays offer an opportunity to explore the functional sequence polymorphism among different cultivars of many crop plants. The Affymetrix microarray expression data of five genotypes of Gossypium hirsutum L. at six different fibre developmental stages was used to identify single feature polymorphisms (SFPs). The background corrected and(More)
