Lentil (Lens culinaris ssp. culinaris) is a nutritious and affordable pulse with an ancient crop domestication history. The genus Lens consists of seven taxa, however, there are many discrepancies in the taxon and gene pool classification of lentil and its wild relatives. Due to the narrow genetic basis of cultivated lentil, there is a need towards better(More)
Widening the genetic base of minor grain legume crops such as lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) is important for achieving future gains in productivity. In order to access genes from wild lentil species embryo rescue techniques are required to overcome reproductive barriers. Removing the seed coat from developing 14-day old immature hybrid seeds and culturing(More)
Legumes are recalcitrant to androgenesis and induction protocols were only recently developed for pea (Pisum sativum L.) and chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), albeit with low regeneration frequencies. Androgenesis is thought to be mediated through abscisic acid (ABA) but other phytohormones, such as auxins, cytokinins, and gibberellins, have also been(More)
Developmental context and species-specific hormone requirements are of key importance in the advancement of in vitro protocols and manipulation of seed development. Improvement of in vitro tissue and cell culture protocols in grain legumes such as embryo rescue, interspecific hybridization, and androgenesis requires an understanding of the types, activity,(More)
Cicer anatolicum, a perennial species, has ascochyta blight resistance superior to that found in the cultivated chickpea. However, hybridization barriers during early stages of embryo development curtail access to this trait. Since hormones play an essential role in early embryo development, we have determined the hormone profiles of 4-, 8-, and 12-day old(More)
Following the publication of the article, the authors noted that there were certain errors in Fig. 5. In particular, the published Fig. 5A-a contains an image of H&E-stained micrographs from wild-type mice after the administration of a low dose of rhHMGB1, and not after the administration of a high dose of rhHMGB1, as should be shown. In addition, the data(More)
Easy creation and manipulation of skyrmions is important in skyrmion based devices for data storage and information processing. We show that a nano-second current pulse alone is capable of creating/deleting and manipulating skyrmions in a spin valve with a perpendicularly magnetized free layer and broken chiral symmetry. Interestingly, for an in-plane(More)
Early light-induced proteins (ELIPs) are nuclear-encoded thylakoid proteins. In the present research, two full-length cDNAs (741 and 815 bp), encoding ELIPs (190 and 175 aa) and their genomic sequences, were isolated from tea leaves, and named CsELIP1 and CsELIP2, respectively. Both the deduced CsELIPs contain a chloroplast transit peptide in the N-terminus(More)
