Plant mitochondrial genomes have complex configurations resulting from the multipartite structures and highly rearranged substoichiometric molecules created by repetitive sequences. To expedite the reliable classification of the diverse radish (Raphanus sativus L.) cytoplasmic types, we have developed consistent molecular markers within their complex(More)
The extensive morbidity and mortality caused by influenza A viruses worldwide prompts the need for a deeper understanding of the host immune response and novel therapeutic and/or prophylactic interventions. In this study, we assessed the sublingual route as an effective means of delivering probiotics against influenza virus in mice. In addition, IgA levels,(More)
Map-based cloning to find genes of interest, markerassisted selection (MAS), and marker-assisted breeding (MAB) all require good genetic maps with high reproducible markers. For map construction as well as chromosome assignment, development of single copy PCR-based markers and map integration process are necessary. In this study, the 132 markers (57 STS(More)
Phytophthora capsici Leonian, an oomycete pathogen, is a serious problem in pepper worldwide. Its resistance in pepper is controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTL). To detect QTL associated with P. capsici resistance, a molecular linkage map was constructed using 100 F2 individuals from a cross between Capsicum annuum ‘CM334’ and C. annuum ‘Chilsungcho’.(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to evaluate the use of the autogenous mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) impregnated in an injectable alginate gel containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for nasal augmentation in rabbit model. METHODS Bone marrow-derived MSCs were isolated and expanded from New Zealand white rabbits. At confluence, the cells were mixed(More)
Red pepper, Capsicum annuum L., has been attracting geneticists' and breeders' attention as one of the important agronomic crops. This study was to integrate 41 SNP markers newly developed from comparative transcriptomes into a previous linkage map, and map 12 agronomic and morphological traits into the integrated map. A total of 39 markers found precise(More)
Bulked segregant analysis (BSA) using Affymetrix GeneChips revealed candidate genes underlying the major QTL for Phytophthora capsici resistance in Capsicum . Using the candidate genes, reliable markers for Phytophthora resistance were developed and validated. Phytophthora capsici L. is one of the most destructive pathogens of pepper (Capsicum spp.).(More)
Field experiments were conducted to determine the effect of sulfur (S) and Nitrogen (N) on nitrate reductase (NR) and ATP-sulfurylase activities in groundnut cultivars (Arachis hypogea L. cv. Ambar and Kaushal). Two combinations of S (in kg ha-1): OS (-S) and 20S (+S) were used with 20 kg ha-1 N. The application of S enhanced the NR and ATP-sulfurylase(More)
A pepper genetic map was constructed from F2 mapping population of 93 individuals from a cross between Capsicum annuum ‘F68’ and C. chinense ‘Habanero’. Surrey was made for the map distribution and polymorphism level of these marker groups; reverse random amplification microsatellite polymorphism (rRAMP), WRKY and amplified fragment length polymorphisms(More)
A three-locus model for rind phenotypes in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) was previously proposed based on genetic analysis. These three loci, S (foreground stripe pattern), D (depth of rind color), and Dgo (background rind color), segregate in a Mendelian manner. Whole genome sequencing of watermelon offers a new strategy for marker development in these(More)
