Winter hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was crossed with Aegilops variabilis to transfer resistance to powdery mildew into wheat. Following two backcrosses to wheat and from 5 to 9 generations of selfing, several disomic addition and substitution lines of hexaploid wheat resistant to the mildew pathogen were isolated. A pair of short satellited(More)
The spread of farming from western Asia to Europe had profound long-term social and ecological impacts, but identification of the specific nature of Neolithic land management practices and the dietary contribution of early crops has been problematic. Here, we present previously undescribed stable isotope determinations of charred cereals and pulses from 13(More)
An isotopic reconstruction of human dietary patterns and livestock management practices (herding, grazing, foddering, etc.) is presented here from the sites of Düzen Tepe and Sagalassos in southwestern Turkey. Carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios were determined from bone collagen extracted from humans (n = 49) and animals (n = 454) from five distinct(More)
Callus tissues originating fromZea mays root meristem, induced for rhizogenesis callus, meristematic and differentiated maize root cells for isolation of nuclei and acid-soluble chromosomal proteins were used. Cytological investigations proved that rhizogenesis begins with the formation of meristematic centres, followed by root differentiation about 5–12(More)
Burned greasy deposits were found inside shells of the large Nile bivalve Chambardia rubens, excavated in an eight- to tenth- century AD church of the Coptic monastery of Bawit, Egypt, and supposedly used as oil lamps. The residues were subjected to a combination of chromatographic residue analysis techniques. The rather high concentrations of unsaturated(More)
Sunflower oil has been oxidized at 25 and 100 degrees C in the presence and in the absence of 0.01, 0.02 and 0.05% 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, caffeic acid, esculetin and fraxetin. 3,4-Dihydroxybenzoic acid shows no antioxidative activity at either temperature. Esculetin possesses a relatively low effectiveness at 100 degrees C (stabilization factor F = 1.3(More)
A clinico-laboratory study is carried out on 100 workers from the coke-chemical plant "Mining Complex Kremikovtzy", exposed to chronic effect of carbon oxide, at concentrations close to MAC. A wide range of laboratory indicators are employed for the purpose: hematologic, biochemical and enzymatic. Increased alkaline phosphatase and aldolase activity,(More)
This study investigates the palaeoecological record (δ18O, δ13C, pollen, plant macrofossils, chironomids and cladocera) at Lake Bled (Slovenia) sedimentary core to better understand the response of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to Late-glacial climatic fluctuations. The multi-proxy record suggests that in the Oldest Dryas, the landscape around Lake(More)
Nuclei fromZea mays L. root tip meristematic cells were treated according to the conventional method for nuclear matrix isolation and according to a recently adapted procedure for isolation of nuclear shells from plant cells. In the first case, after high salt extraction of proteins and DNase I and RNase digestions, residual structures are obtained(More)
The site of Parkhaus Opéra is located on the north-eastern shore of Lake Zürich (Switzerland) and was documented during a rescue excavation in 2010 and 2011 by the Office for Urbanism, City of Zürich. Two charred bread-like objects were found in late Neolithic Layer 13 of the pile-dwelling, and are investigated using a novel set of analyses for cereal-based(More)
