Multiple recombinant inbred lines, derived from crosses between strains permissive to N-tropic murine leukemia viruses (Fv-1n) and strains permissive to B-tropic murine leukemia viruses (Fv-1b), have been characterized as to Fv-1 genotype and other chromosome 4 markers, including the closely linked hexose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase isozyme locus (Gpd-1).(More)
The mode of deposition (secretion) of galactomannan in the cells of the seed endosperm ofTrigonella foenum-graecum has been studied by electron microscopy. In cells which are just beginning to secrete galactomannan there are stacks of rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The intracisternal space (containing the enchylema) of the rough ER then swells, becomes(More)
The reserve endosperm galactomannans of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.), crimson clover (Trifolium incarnatum L.) and lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) are broken down to free galactose and mannose in dry-isolated endosperms (devoid of embryo) incubated under germination conditions. Breakdown is prevented by inhibition of protein synthesis or of(More)
Seed clusters of individual locules from fruit capsules of Gossypium arboreum L. with adhering intact fibres were fed with radioactive uridinediphosphoglucose (UDPG), guanosinediphosphoglucose (GDPG), glucose and sucrose. The incorporation into high molecular weight glucans of the fibres was studied. For primary wall fibres, UDPG at 1 mM was by far the best(More)
