Genetics of growth habit and photoperiodic response to flowering time in dolichos bean (Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet).
The increased risk of malignancies is a well-recognized complication of organ transplantation. When renal cell carcinoma (RCC) occurs in kidney transplant recipients, less than 10% of it affects the allograft. Recent experience suggests that partial allograft nephrectomy for tumours less than 4 cm may be considered the treatment of choice. We report a case… (More)
Though F1 hybrids are not the immediate cultivar option, development of heterotic F1 hybrids is relevant from view point of deriving pure lines, the only cultivar choice in dolichos bean, a predominantly self-pollinated grain legume crop species. Heterotic F1 generates a high frequency of productive derivatives in F3 and later generations as compared to… (More)
The damage caused to stored seed by bruchids (Callosobruchus maculatus) is considered to be a major production constraint in rice bean (Vigna umbellata). Breeding for genetically determined resistance is the most environmentally benign and cost-effective means to mitigate the losses to bruchid infestation. Here, a screen of rice bean germplasm identified… (More)
An investigation on inheritance of qualitative traits in dolichos bean revealed biallelic monogenic control of photoperiod-induced sensitivity to flowering time and flower colour in F 2 and F 3 generations. While, growth habit and pod curvature are each controlled by two genes that exhibit classical complementary epistasis, raceme emergence was controlled… (More)
