Doubly Uniparental Inheritance (Dui) Of Mitochondrial DNA in Donax trunculus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) and the Problem of its Sporadic Detection in Bivalvia
Abstract Mitochondrial DNA is transmitted maternally in metazoan species. This rule does not hold in several species of bivalves that have two mtDNA types, one that is transmitted maternally and theExpand

Homologous recombination between highly diverged mitochondrial sequences: examples from maternally and paternally transmitted genomes.
Homologous recombination is restricted to sequences of low divergence. This is attributed to the mismatch repairing system (MMR), which does not allow recombination between sequences that are highlyExpand

No evidence for presence of maternal mitochondrial DNA in the sperm of Mytilus galloprovincialis males
Species of the mussel family Mytilidae have a special mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) transmission system, known as doubly uniparental inheritance (DUI), which consists of a maternally inherited (F) and aExpand

A mitochondrial genome with a reversed transmission route in the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis.
Species of the marine mussel genus Mytilus are known to contain two mitochondrial genomes, one transmitted maternally (the F genome) and the other paternally (the M genome). The two genomes haveExpand

Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain MBI600 induces salicylic acid dependent resistance in tomato plants against Tomato spotted wilt virus and Potato virus Y
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria have been proposed as effective biocontrol agents against several fungal and bacterial plant pathogens. However, there is limited knowledge regarding their effectExpand

Dehydroepiandrosterone: an ancestral ligand of neurotrophin receptors.
Dehydroepiandosterone (DHEA), the most abundant steroid in humans, affects multiple cellular functions of the endocrine, immune, and nervous systems. However, up to quite recently, no receptor hasExpand

Effect of Pyraclostrobin Application on Viral and Bacterial Diseases of Tomato.
Quinone outside inhibitors (QoI) are powerful fungicides, which have been reported, additionally to their fungicide activity, to increase plant capacity to activate cellular defense responses and toExpand

Gene expression profiling in the developing secondary palate in the absence of Tbx1 function
BackgroundMicrodeletion of chromosome 22q11 is associated with significant developmental anomalies, including disruption of the cardiac outflow tract, thymic/parathyroid aplasia and cleft palate.Expand

Partial Selfing Can Reduce Genetic Loads While Maintaining Diversity During Experimental Evolution
Partial selfing, whereby self- and cross- fertilization occur in populations at intermediate frequencies, is generally thought to be evolutionarily unstable. Yet, it is found in natural populations.Expand
