Candidate genes involved in both recognition (resistance gene analogs [RGAs]) and general plant defense (putative defense response [DR]) were used as molecular markers to test for association with resistance in rice to blast, bacterial blight (BB), sheath blight, and brown plant-hopper (BPH). The 118 marker loci were either polymerase chain reaction-based(More)
A total of 1918 loci, detected by the hybridization of 938 expressed sequence tag unigenes (ESTs) from 26 Triticeae cDNA libraries, were mapped to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) homoeologous group 4 chromosomes using a set of deletion, ditelosomic, and nulli-tetrasomic lines. The 1918 EST loci were not distributed uniformly among the three group 4(More)
To gain insights into the structure and function of the wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) genomes, we identified 278 ESTs related to abiotic stress (cold, heat, drought, salinity, and aluminum) from 7671 ESTs previously mapped to wheat chromosomes. Of the 278 abiotic stress related ESTs, 259 (811 loci) were assigned to chromosome deletion bins and analyzed for(More)
Administration of L-DOPA is commonly used to treat Parkinson's disease, yet controversy continues as to whether the dopamine arising from it aggravates neuronal loss. Several authors have reported cytotoxic effects of L-DOPA and dopamine on cultured cells, but others have not. In this report using the rat pheochromocytoma cell line PC12 and the M14 human(More)
DNA marker-assisted selection was employed to select Xa-21 bacterial blight resistance and waxy (Wx) genes. Genotypes with both genes were selected from four F2 populations involving indica × indica, indica × intermediate and japonica × indica crosses. With the assistance of PCR marker, 13 true breeding lines carrying Xa-21 were identified from F2(More)
