Genetic variation in five Mediterranean populations of Juniperus phoenicea as revealed by inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The assessment of the genetic variability and the identification of isolated populations within a given species represent important information to plan conservation strategies onExpand

cDNA encoding sequences for myostatin and FGF6 in sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax, L.) and the effect of fasting and refeeding on their abundance levels.
Fish have the ability to compensate for set-backs in growth as a result of fasting. When food levels are restored, growth in these fish can increase over and above normal rates. This phenomenon,Expand

Genetic structure of Octopus vulgaris (Mollusca, Cephalopoda) from the Mediterranean Sea as revealed by a microsatellite locus
Abstract An investigation of the genetic variability of Octopus vulgaris, an intensively harvested species, was carried out using a mi crosatellite locus as genetic marker. Samples from one easternExpand

Long‐term outcome (35 years) of hepatitis C after acquisition of infection through mini transfusions of blood given at birth
Long‐term follow up studies of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection rarely exceed 20–25 yr. We studied the outcome of HCV infection in 35‐yr‐old adults infected at birth (1968) through mini transfusionsExpand

Mapping quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for resistance to Gibberella zeae infection in maize
The basic prerequisite for an efficient breeding program to improve levels of resistance to pathogens in plants is the identification of genes controlling the resistance character. If the response toExpand

A genetic linkage map of Picea abies Karst., based on RAPD markers, as a tool in population genetics
Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) is a most important species among European forest trees for both economical and ecological reasons. However, this species has suffered from a lack of information onExpand

CO2 fluxes among different vegetation types during the growing season in Marguerite Bay (Antarctic Peninsula)
Abstract The Antarctic Peninsula has experienced a strong climate warming trend of + 0.53 °C (mean annual air temperature) over the last 50 years. In the Polar Regions, changes in vegetation andExpand

The distribution of genetic variation in Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) populations in the western Alps
Aim  In order to look for a possible centre of survival for the Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) in the south-western Alps, six natural populations of this area were investigated by means ofExpand

A major susceptibility locus to murine lung carcinogenesis maps on chromosome 6
Lung tumours represent a major cause of death in humans, and although smoking represents the main pathogenetic factor, inheritance also plays a part. However, the identification of possibleExpand

Microsatellite repeats are not randomly distributed within Norway spruce (Picea abies K.) expressed sequences.
A Norway spruce (Picea abies K.) cDNA library obtained from vegetative bud tissue was screened for the presence of (AG)n and (AC)n microsatellite repeats. Ten (AG)n and six (AC)n microsatellites wereExpand
