Commercial cultivars of garlic (Allium sativum) do not produce flowers and seed; hence, information on microgametogenesis and genetic knowledge of this important crop is unavailable. Recently, physiological studies enabled flowering and fertility restoration in garlic bolting genotypes by environmental manipulations, thus broadening of the genetic variation(More)
PsbO, the manganese-stabilizing protein, plays a crucial role in oxygen-evolving complex functioning and stabilization, by maintaining optimal manganese, calcium and chloride concentrations at the active state of PSII. In this paper we present a study focused on recognizing the relationship between psbO gene activity and acclimation of the photosynthetic(More)
Abiotic stresses, including low temperature, can significantly reduce plant yielding. The knowledge on the molecular basis of stress tolerance could help to improve its level in species of relatively high importance to agriculture. Unfortunately, the complex research performed so far mainly on model species and also, to some extent, on cereals does not(More)
Commercial cultivars of garlic, a popular condiment, are sterile, making genetic studies and breeding of this plant challenging. However, recent fertility restoration has enabled advanced physiological and genetic research and hybridization in this important crop. Morphophysiological studies, combined with transcriptome and proteome analyses and(More)
Understanding how plants respond to drought at different levels of cell metabolism is an important aspect of research on the mechanisms involved in stress tolerance. Furthermore, a dissection of drought tolerance into its crucial components by the use of plant introgression forms facilitates to analyze this trait more deeply. The important components of(More)
Qualitative and quantitative differences were found between two-dimensional electrophoretic spectra of 546 proteins from two bulked samples of mature rye grain representing: (1) 20 recombinant inbred lines extremely resistant to preharvest sprouting and (2) 20 recombinant inbred lines extremely susceptible to preharvest sprouting. Mass spectrometry of(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is an important cereal crop grown for both the feed and malting industries. The allelic dwarfing gene sdw1/denso has been used throughout the world to develop commercial barley varieties. Proteomic analysis offers a new approach to identify a broad spectrum of genes that are expressed in the living system. Two-dimensional(More)
Drought tolerant plant genotypes are able to maintain stability and integrity of cellular membranes in unfavorable conditions, and to regenerate damaged membranes after stress cessation. The profiling of cellular glycerolipids during drought stress performed on model species such as Arabidopsis thaliana does not fully cover the picture of lipidome in(More)
UNLABELLED Minimally invasive lumbar interbody fusion (MILIF) offers potential for reduced operative morbidity and earlier recovery compared with open procedures for patients with degenerative lumbar disorders (DLD). Firm conclusions about advantages of MILIF over open procedures cannot be made because of limited number of large studies of MILIF in a(More)
Germination is the first step of plant growth in plant life cycle. An embryonic radicle protruding the seed coat is the first part of plant which has direct contact with external environment including salt-affected soil. In embryo axes, mitochondria are the main energy producer. To understand better salinity impact on mitochondria functioning, this study(More)
