BACKGROUND AND AIMS The date palm is a dioecious perennial species of the Arecaceae for which in vitro micropropagation is essential to ensure the renewal of palm plantations. This study presents a histocytological analysis of the traditional Mauritanian Amsekhsi cultivar beginning from the initial callogenesis and continuing up to the establishment of the(More)
This study provides a physiological analysis of somatic embryogenesis in four elite cultivars of date palms: Ahmar, Amsekhsi, Tijib, and Amaside, from the initial callogenesis to establishment and proliferation of embryogenic suspension cultures. Somatic embryos development and in vitro plants rooting were also studied. For each step, auxins and cytokinins(More)
We studied the preschool (2-5 years) group of child's oral health status in Ziguinchor, the southern regions of Senegal. Our objective was to make the inventory of fixtures dealing with dental caries, gingivitis and tartar among the children of this age group. It's a transversal study based on a clinical examination of a sample size of 168 children(More)
Cultivated peanut and synthetics are allotetraploids (2n = 4x = 40) with two homeologous sets of chromosomes. Meiosis in allotetraploid peanut is generally thought to show diploid-like behavior. However, a recent study pointed out the occurrence of recombination between homeologous chromosomes, especially when synthetic allotetraploids are used, challenging(More)
Weak electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signals from a number of calcium oxalate renal stones are attributed to an iron oxalate component. The g-value of the resonance is 2.0036 and its width is approximately 9 gauss. The EPR resonance from stones has the same characteristics as resonances from iron introduced into calcium oxalate and oxalic acid as an(More)
