Heteroduplex DNA (hDNA) generated during homologous recombination (HR) is an important component that shapes genetic diversity in sexually reproducing organisms. However, studies of this process in higher plants are limited. This is because hDNAs are difficult to capture in higher plants as their reproductive developmental model only produces normal gametes(More)
BACKGROUND Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a group of neurodegenerative disorders that primarily cause the degeneration in the cerebellum, spinal cord, and brainstem. We study the clinical characteristics, radiological features and gene mutation in Chinese families with SCAs. METHODS In this study, we investigated 10 SCAs Chinese families with SCA1,(More)
BACKGROUND Different subtypes of idiopathic generalized epilepsy may indicate different mechanisms and outcomes, suggesting that it is necessary to use a 'pure sample' of a single subtype. METHODS A volumetric study, in conjunction with cognition assessments, was performed in a pure sample of patients with idiopathic generalized tonic-clonic seizures(More)
It is well known that polyploidy is a major force in plant evolution and diversification. Evaluating the transmission of heterozygosity by 2n gametes with different formation mechanisms is of crucial importance. In the present study, 120 triploid hybrids [originating from first-division restitution (FDR), second-division restitution (SDR), and postmeiotic(More)
