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)
Water availability is a major limitation for agricultural productivity. Plants growing in severe arid climates such as deserts provide tools for studying plant growth and performance under extreme drought conditions. The perennial species Calotropis procera used in this study is a shrub growing in many arid areas which has an exceptional ability to adapt(More)
Climate change is predicted to be a serious threat to agriculture due to the need for crops to be able to tolerate increased heat stress. Desert plants have already adapted to high levels of heat stress so they make excellent systems for identifying genes involved in thermotolerance. Rhazya stricta is an evergreen shrub that is native to extremely hot(More)
The ultimate goal of this work was to detect the role of transcription factors (TFs) concordantly expressed with genes related to programmed cell death (PCD) during PCD and salt stress. This work was based on the hypothesis that TFs and their driven genes likely co-express under different stimuli. The conserved superfamily ethylene responsive factor(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)
