Amplified fragment-length polymorphism (AFLP) was used to evaluate the stability of DNA in regenerated plantlets of Coffea arabica obtained by direct (DSE) and indirect somatic embryogenesis (ISE). Cluster analysis using the unweighted pair-group method (UPGMA), showed no specific grouping pattern related to the type of embryogenesis. These results suggest(More)
The Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico contains some of the largest breeding groups of the globally distributed and critically endangered hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata). An improved understanding of the breeding system of this species and how its genetic variation is structured among nesting areas is required before the threats to its survival can be(More)
Agave plants are a valuable source of raw material due to its fibrous and complex sugar content of their leaves and core, and their bagasse waste can be use for several aims. This plant genus belongs to the Agavaceae family and until now more than 200 species have been described. A large number of Agave species are currently used as raw material in several(More)
Tissue culture can be used to propagate elite material or to generate new variability by employing somaclonal variation. Genetic stability of the process must be evaluated analyzing DNA profiles by the use of molecular markers. Several techniques have been reported for the screening of genetic variation on tissue culture derived material; however, a highly(More)
Two ribosomal DNA regions (5S and 18S) were characterized in three economically important species of Agave Linnaeus, 1753 namely Agave tequilana Weber, 1902; Agave angustifolia Haworth, 1915; and Agave fourcroydes Lemaire, 1864 which are used to produce several products such as tequila, mezcal, and hard fibers. Characterization included Agave L. accessions(More)
Whole-genome duplication (polyploidy) occurs frequently and repeatedly within species of plants. According to the source of the genomes giving origin to a polyploid plant species, these are classified into allopolyploid (when two or more genomes are combined through either intraspecific or interspecific hybridization) and autopolyploid (when a single genome(More)
Here, two Punica species, viz., P. protopunica Balf. fil., reported as native to Socotra, and P. granatum L., were compared for the first time. Analysis of one P. protopunica and eleven P. granatum accessions was performed using three molecular markers, i.e., sequence related amplified polymorphism (SRAP), target region amplification polymorphism (TRAP),(More)
Changes in telomere length (shortening and lengthening) have been associated with age, loss of cell replication, and the number of times that a cell can be divided. In this study, we observed telomere length dynamics during organogenesis induction in agaves (A. fourcroydes and A. tequilana) using parental material derived from plants adapted of ex vitro(More)
Polyploidy has been widely described in many Agave L. species, but its influence on environmental response to stress is still unknown. With the objective of knowing the morphological adaptations and regulation responses of genes related to biotic (LEA) and abiotic (NBS-LRR) stress in species of Agave with different levels of ploidy, and how these factors(More)
Molecular and biochemical studies of somatic embryogenesis may help to shed light on the mechanisms governing this phenomenon. In this article, a differential display analysis approach was employed to investigate the changes taking place during the induction of somatic embryogenesis in leaf explants and suspension cultures of coffee. Cloned fragments show(More)
