Impact of natural genetic variation on the transcriptome of autotetraploid Arabidopsis thaliana
Polyploidy, the presence of more than two complete sets of chromosomes in an organism, has significantly shaped the genomes of angiosperms during evolution. Two forms of polyploidy are oftenExpand

New roles for cis-jasmone as an insect semiochemical and in plant defense.
cis-jasmone, or (Z)-jasmone, is well known as a component of plant volatiles, and its release can be induced by damage, for example during insect herbivory. Using the olfactory system of the lettuceExpand

Variation in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) tissue culture-derived regenerants revealed by AFLPs with methylation-sensitive enzymes
Abstract Tissue culture-derived plants of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) can develop abnormal flowers in which stamen primordia are converted into carpel-like tissues (mantled fruit). ThisExpand

Characterisation of genetic diversity in potential biomass willows (Salix spp.) by RAPD and AFLP analyses.
The genus Salix (willow) contains a number of species which have great potential value as biomass crops in short rotation coppice (SRC). Efforts to improve biomass willows by breeding are currentlyExpand

Molecular characterization of mouse T-cell ecto-ADP-ribosyltransferase Rt6: cloning of a second functional gene and identification of the Rt6 gene products.
RT6 is an enzymatically active GPI-anchored membrane protein that was originally discovered in the rat as a peripheral T cell alloantigen. It has attracted interest as an activation antigen andExpand

Plant stress signalling: understanding and exploiting plant-plant interactions.
When plants are attacked by insects, volatile chemical signals can be released, not only from the damaged parts, but also systemically from other parts of the plant and this continues after cessationExpand

Mechanism of replication of bacteriophage phi X174 XIX. Initiation of phi X174 viral strand DNA synthesis at internal sites on the genome.
Bacteriophage phi X174 viral strand DNA molecules shorter than genome length found late in the infectious cycle in Escherichia coli were 5' end labeled with 32P. Hybridization of the 32P-labeledExpand
