Nine primers (including UBC-269 and GSLP1) were designed and synthesized based on DNA sequences of UBC-269(484) and GSLP1(569). The template DNA from Red Globe (seeded paternal parent) and Flame Seedless (seedless maternal parent) were screened using these primers. For Flame Seedless,GSLP1 yielded specific marker GSLP1(569); No. 39970524-5 primer yielded(More)
PISTILLATA (PI)-like genes are crucial regulators of flowering in angiosperms. A homologue of PI, designated as AcPI (Genbank accession number HQ717796), was isolated from pineapple cultivar Comte de Paris by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The cDNA sequence of AcPI is 907 bp in length(More)
The CONSTANS (CO) or CONSTANS-like (COL) gene plays a key role in the photoperiodic flowering pathway. A novel cDNA encoding COL gene was isolated from Phalaenopsis hybrida (cv. Wedding Promenade) and designated as PhalCOL. The full cDNA sequence was 1,202 bp in length with an open reading frame (ORF) of 987 bp, encoding 329 amino acids with a molecular(More)
This paper documents the key anatomical features during the development of P. armeniacum zygotic embryos and their ability to germinate asymbiotically in vitro. This study also examines the effect of media and seed pretreatments on seed germination and subsequent seedling growth. Seeds collected from pods 45 days after pollination (DAP) did not germinate(More)
