Gene Rlr etb , derived from the potato species Solanum etuberosum, confers resistance to potato leafroll virus (PLRV). Mapping of this gene would aid in developing marker-assisted selection protocols to facilitate its introgression into cultivated potato. One RFLP marker and 45 cleaved amplified polymorphic markers (CAPs) markers were used to screen an(More)
Dean E. Riechers Corresponding author. Department of Crop Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL 61801; riechers@uiuc.edu Two studies investigated off-target exposure of soybean to plant growth regulator (PGR) herbicides and determined if simultaneous exposure to PGR herbicides and labeled soybean herbicides increase PGR injury. The PGR herbicides,(More)
Symptoms resembling off-target plant growth regulator (PGR) herbicide injury are frequently found in soybean fields, but the causal agent is often difficult to identify. The expression of GH3, an auxin-regulated soybean gene, was quantified from soybean leaves injured by PGR herbicides using real-time RT-PCR. Expression of GH3 was analyzed to ascertain its(More)
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a natriuretic, diuretic and vasodilatory peptide normally synthesized and secreted by the atria of the adult mammalian heart. Synthesis of ANP in the ventricle has also been demonstrated in the fetus and neonate. In the adult, ventricular ANP is expressed under pathological conditions such as hypertension and congestive(More)
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP), produced by atrial cardiomyocytes, is an endogenous hypotensive agent that brings about vasodilation and diuresis. Similar to other polypeptide hormones, ANP is synthesized as a precursor, preproANP. The preprohormone is processed intracellularly and is stored in secretory granules as the prohormone. During the events of(More)
