The lily retrotransposon del 1-46 is 9345 base pairs (bp) long. It has long terminal repeats (LTRs) of 2406 bp (left) and 2415 bp (right), which differ in sequence by 1.4%. Sequences similar to those involved in priming DNA synthesis in retroviruses occur in the internal region. Near the left LTR is a sequence complementary to 18 residues at the 3' end of(More)
Arabinoxylans (AX) are major components of cell walls in wheat endosperm. The water-extractable part, WEAX, is considered as dietary fibres with health promoting effects. AX exhibit large natural variations in their amount but few studies have been carried out on the genetics of WEAX content and structure in bread wheat. We first carried out a “forward”(More)
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis followed by silver-staining has been employed to study 27 red cell lysates for genetic variation. Forty-six polypeptides selected without respect to variability were considered suitable for scoring. Only 23 of the total of 1,242 polypeptides could not be scored unambiguously. Of the remaining 1,219 polypeptides, 38(More)
The most abundantly repeated sequences in the very large genomes ofLilium henryi andLilium longiflorum have been characterized. DNA reannealed by a Cot of 1 Ms, which specifies the half reannealing point of sequences repeated 18–19,000 times per genome, was used to probe genomic libraries and restriction digests of each species. InL. henryi this fraction(More)
Frequencies of exchange were determined in C-bands of chromosomes 1, 9 and 16 in six normal males, and related to relative C-band area. Comparing these different chromosomes, more exchanges occurred on average in 9 than in 1 although their mean C-band sizes were similar. Chromosome 16 exchanges were fewer, both overall and relative to C-band area. Comparing(More)
Copper complexes of molecular formulae, [CuL(1)(OAc)], [CuL(2)(H(2)O)], [CuL(3)(H(2)O)], [CuL(4)(H(2)O)], [CuL(5)(H(2)O)] where L(1)-L(5) represents Schiff base ligands [by the condensation of 3-hydroxyflavone with 4-aminoantipyrine (L(1))/o-aminophenol (L(2))/o-aminobenzoic acid (L(3))/o-aminothiazole (L(4))/thiosemicarbazide (L(5))], have been prepared.(More)
In XY cells, exchanges in the Y C-band were rare (<0.8%). However, in XYY cells we observed 58 Y chromosomes involved in exchange out of 208 (28%). Most were Y-Y interchanges. Therefore mitomycin C does affect Y C-bands, but subsequent interchange requires the presence of a homologue. This may be the consequence of interphase association of the homologues,(More)
The yellow pigment content (YPC) of endosperm affects the quality and nutritional value of wheat grain products. Major quantitative trait loci (QTL) for endosperm YPC have been repeatedly mapped on chromosomes 7A and 7B in durum and bread wheats. The genes coding for phytoene synthase (PSY1), which is involved in the biosynthesis of carotenoids, generally(More)
The ligand, N(2),N(3)-bis(3-nitrophenyl)quinoxaline-2.3-diamine was prepared by the condensation of quinoxaline-2.3(1,4H)-dione with 3-nitroaniline. It was treated with Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) acetates to form the metal complexes. These were characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic moment, UV-Vis., IR, (1)H NMR, ESR and(More)
Four hydroxyflavone derivatives have been synthesized with the aim of obtaining a good model of superoxide dismutase. Better to mimic the natural metalloenzyme, copper complexes have been designed. The Cu(II) complexes of general formulae, [CuL] where L = 5-hydroxyflavone-o-phenylenediamine (L¹H₂)/m-phenylenediamine (L²H₂) and(More)
