Callus cultures from cotyledon and leaf explants of a Spanish cultivar of melon (Amarillo Oro) were tested for growth and morphogenic capacity on several culture media with different concentrations of IAA (indole-3-acetic acid) in combination with 1.0 mg.L BA (6-benzylaminopurine) or 6.0 mg.L KIN (kinetin). The best results were achieved with cotyledon(More)

We analyzed whether global and inflammatory genes methylation can be early predictors of metabolic changes and their associations with the diet, in a cross-sectional study (n = 40). Higher global methylation was associated to adiposity, insulin resistance, and lower quality of the diet. Methylation of IL-6, SERPINE1 and CRP genes was related to adiposity(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the influence of the growing environment on the in vitro conservation of citrus genotypes obtained from the Active Citrus Germplasm Bank of Embrapa Cassava and Fruit. The study used multivariate statistic tools in order to improve the efficiency in the analysis of the results. Approximately 1-cm of length microcuttings from(More)
