Phosphatidylinositol-4-monophosphate 5-kinases produce phosphatidylinositol (4,5)-bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P(2)] and have been implicated in vesicle trafficking and cytoskeletal rearrangements. Here, we adopted a reverse genetics approach to investigate the function of the Arabidopsis thaliana pollen-expressed gene encoding(More)
s / Int. J. Devl Neuroscience 47 (2015) 1–131 79 the control of food intake. Sim1 thus regulates the development of the PVN as well as its function. The objective of this project is to identify novel regulators of PVN development. We have identified a regulatory element that specifically directs expression in all cells of the developing PVN. Using this(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Orchids in the genus Ophrys represent extraordinary cases of tight coevolution between plants and their pollinators, and as a result, they present opportunities for studying hybridization, or a lack thereof, during speciation. However, few studies assess the real effect of hybridization in diversification. The three most representative(More)
The present study reports the isolation and characterization of eight new polymorphic microsatellite loci from the sexually deceptive orchid Ophrys fusca. Microsatellites were isolated from two partially enriched genomic libraries using FIASCO (Fast Isolation by AFLP of Sequences COntaining repeats). Seventy-three loci were screened for primer design and(More)
