The objective of this study was to identify molecular markers linked to genes for resistance to powdery mildew (Pm) in wheat using a series of ‘Chancellor’ near-isogenic-lines (NILs), each having one powdery mildew resistance gene. A total of 210 probes were screened for their ability to detect polymorphism between the NILs and the recurrent parent. One of(More)
RFLP markers for the wheat powdery mildew resistance genes Pm1 and Pm2 were tagged by means of near-isogenic lines. The probe Whs178 is located 3 cM from the Pm1 gene. For the powdery mildew resistance gene Pm2, two markers were identified. The linkage between the Pm2 resistance locus and one of these two probes was estimated to be 3 cM with a F2(More)
Recent development of cytogenetic techniques has facilitated significant progress in Arabidopsis thaliana karyotype studies. Double-target FISH with rRNA genes provides makers that allow individual chromosome in the genome to be distinguished. Those studies have revealed that the number and position of rDNA loci is ecotype-specific. Arabidopsis is believed(More)
Four cucurbitane glycosides, momordicosides Q, R, S, and T, and stereochemistry-established karaviloside XI, were isolated from the vegetable bitter melon (Momordica charantia). These compounds and their aglycones exhibited a number of biologic effects beneficial to diabetes and obesity. In both L6 myotubes and 3T3-L1 adipocytes, they stimulated GLUT4(More)
The substituted (R)-phenyllactic acid containing cyclohexadepsipeptides (CHDPs) represent novel enniatin derivatives with strong in vivo activities against the parasitic nematode Haemonchus contortus Rudolphi in sheep. 2D NMR spectroscopic analysis revealed for the substituted (R)-phenyllactic acid containing CHDPs one major conformer with an(More)
A novel cyclobutane class of nonpeptidic glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, exemplified by 3, was identified using receptor binding and multiple response element/cAMP response element (MRE/CRE)-driven reporter gene assays. The structures of 3 and its three isomers were elucidated by NMR, HRESIMS, and X-ray crystallography. A series of(More)
Emodepside is an endoparasiticide used in veterinary drugs. It exists in four different crystal forms which were characterised using DSC, TGA, evolved gas analysis (using FT-IR spectroscopy), hot-stage microscopy, FT-Raman, FT-IR and FT-NIR spectroscopy and powder X-ray diffraction. Thermal analysis showed that the forms II-IV contain considerable amounts(More)
BACKGROUND Amantadine constitutes an interesting, diamond crystal lattice-shaped, antivirally active amine with an inhibitory effect on influenza A viruses causing common 'flu' in humans. Unfortunately, amantadine forfeited most of its therapeutic potential because of resistance development in recent influenza A virus isolates. The antiviral efficacy of(More)
Three new dimeric sesquiterpenoids, chloramultilides B-D ( 1- 3), along with 10 known sesquiterpenoids, were isolated from the whole plant of Chloranthus spicatus. Their structures were established by physical data (1D and 2D NMR, MS). The structure and absolute configuration of 1 was confirmed by X-ray crystallography. Compound 1 exhibited moderate in(More)
Phytochemical investigation on the stem bark and wood of Trigonostemon chinensis led to the isolation of four new dinorditerpenoids, trigonostemons A-D (1, 3, 5, 6), a new phenanthrenone, trigonostemon E (7), and a new bisindole alkaloid, trigonostemon F (8). The structures were established by extensive spectroscopic methods. The absolute configurations of(More)
