Single Nucelotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) have become the most widely used markers in many current genetic applications. Here we report the discovery of nine new SNPs in olives by direct partial sequencing of two genes (OEX and OEW) in sixteen Tunisian cultivars. The SNP markers were then used to genotype 24 olive cultivars and assess the level of genetic(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the role of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) C-1562T and 279R/Q (836G>A) polymorphisms in the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Tunisians and to determine their impact on disease progression and airflow obstruction. Pulmonary functional tests were evaluated by body plethysmography.(More)
Date palm seeds were exposed to different copper solutions to examine plant stress responses. Low Cu concentrations (0.02 and 0.2 mM) caused an increase of seed germination, whereas, higher Cu amount (2 mM) significantly inhibited seeds germination, delayed hypocotyl elongation, increased seedling mortality and reduced germination index by more than 90 %.(More)
