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 F(2) individuals from a cross between Capsicum annuum 'CM334' and C. annuum(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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Montmorillonite is a multifunctional clay mineral and a major component of bentonite. Montmorillonite has been used in various industrial and pharmaceutical fields due to its unique characteristics, which include swelling and adsorption. The high adsorption capacity of montmorillonite contributes to increase drug entrapment and sustained-release of drugs.(More)
Bacterial wilt (BW) is a widespread plant disease that affects a broad range of dicot and monocot hosts and is particularly harmful for solanaceous plants, such as pepper, tomato, and eggplant. The pathogen responsible for BW is the soil-borne bacterium, Ralstonia solanacearum, which can adapt to diverse temperature conditions and is found in climates(More)
