The banana cultivars are originated from the intra- and inter-specific hybridization of two wild diploid species, Musa acuminata Colla and Musa balbisiana Colla, contributing the A and B genomes, respectively. They are classified into genomic groups by scoring morphological features. Molecular markers provide a quick and reliable system of genome(More)
Inflorescence apices are suitable explants for the rapid in vitro propagation of Musa spp. However, the diploid and triploid banana cultivars showed different in vitro responses with respect to the hormone combinations in Murashige and Skoog medium. The diploid cultivar (Sannachenkadali, AA) induced a maximum number of multiple shoots in 8.9 μM 6-benzyl(More)
Investigation of electric charge transport in well-dried thin films of mercaptosuccinic acid-protected gold clusters having different cluster core sizes by a four-probe methodology revealed a novel behavior of metalliclike to semiconductor crossover with an increase in temperature. The systems were found comprising of minor metallic and major insulating(More)
The electric charge transport behavior of a random assembly of three-dimensional superlattice crystals (having different core sizes) of mercaptosuccinic acid-protected gold nanoparticles showed a unique behavior of metallic-like nature at low temperatures and semiconductor nature at high temperatures in addition to a reversible transition feature in the(More)
N-(2-Mercaptopropionyl glycine)-passivated gold clusters (Au-MPG) represent a unique networked system of monolayer-protected clusters (MPCs) due to inter- and/or intramolecular hydrogen bonding between the MPC units thanks to the terminal carboxylic acid groups of the monolayers. We have investigated the size-dependent electric charge transport in(More)
