Date palm is a very important crop in western Asia and northern Africa, and it is the oldest domesticated fruit tree with archaeological records dating back 5000 years. The huge economic value of this crop has generated considerable interest in breeding programs to enhance production of dates. One of the major limitations of these efforts is the uncertainty(More)
Catharanthus roseus or vinca produces over 130 TIAs with pharmaceutical value. Two of them, namely vinblastine (VB) and vincristine (VC), are species-specific and extensively used in anticancer chemotherapeutics. To detect C. roseus genotypes abundant in desired TIAs, contrasting genotypes should be analyzed via marker-assisted selection (MAS) to avoid(More)
The present study aims at detecting molecular markers, based on RAPD, ISSR and AFLP, for the salt-tolerant wild barley Hordeum spontaneum as a little is known about its genetic structure and function. Barley is one of the most important cereal crops all over the world. Therefore, the identification of molecular markers for the salt-tolerant wild species is(More)
The present study aims at detecting genes expressed at stable levels and contributing to PCD triggered by exogenous oxalic acid (OA) treatment (20 mM, pH 7.0) in tobacco (Nicotiana benthamiana). Qualitative and quantitative time-course analysis of cell death indicated some PCD-like features 24 hrs after OA treatment. Expression of a number of 17 genes(More)
