C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a member of the small family of natriuretic peptides that also includes atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain, or B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP). Unlike them, it performs its major functions in an autocrine or paracrine manner. Those functions, mediated through binding to the membrane guanylyl cyclase natriuretic(More)
Somatic embryogenesis of Coffea arabica L. has been mainly carried out in liquid medium for clonal and mass propagation of elite lines. This in vitro system involves suspension cultures of embryogenic aggregates, with high multiplication rate and unorganized growth. These characteristics are linked to the occurrence of somaclonal variation (SV), especially(More)
Karyotype and nuclear 2C-value data are considered important in taxonomic and evolutionary approaches in Coffea. Still, new methods are needed to further support such studies, especially to determine the progenitors of Coffea arabica. In this work, new cytogenetic and flow cytometry data were used to compare Coffea arabica, Coffea canephora and Coffea(More)
