We searched for QTLs involved in tolerance to barley yellow dwarf (BYD), a serious viral disease of small grain cereals in two wheat populations, Opata × Synthetic (ITMI)and Frontana × INIA66 (F × I), for which marker data had previously been generated. The populations were evaluated in replicated field trials under artificial inoculation with a(More)
The African continent contributes one of the largest uncertainties to the global CO(2) budget, because very few long-term measurements are carried out in this region. The contribution of Africa to the global carbon cycle is characterized by its low fossil fuel emissions, a rapidly increasing population causing cropland expansion, and degradation and(More)
OBJECTIVE Interstitial cells of Cajal are critical for the generation of electrical slow waves that regulate the phasic contractile activity of the tunica muscularis of the GI tract. Under certain pathophysiological conditions loss of interstitial cells of Cajal may play a role in the generation of certain motility disorders. The aim of the present study(More)
C-kit immunocytochemistry was performed on ultrathin sections of human distal colon. Our attention was focused on relationships between c-kit immunoreactive interstitial cells (c-kit ICs) and muscular cells and nervous elements located in the external muscular layers of the colonic wall. C-kit ICs established membrane apposition with both nerve fibers and(More)
Organogenic callus cultures of Solanum paludosum were obtained from root, hypocotyle and cotyledon explants of plantlets cultured in sterile conditions. These callus cultures developed multiple shoots which proliferated in Murashige and Skoog basal liquid medium. These multiple shoots produced solamargine, the main steroidal glycoalkaloid present in the(More)
Callus cultures of Solanum paludosum were established from roots, hypocotyles, cotyledons and leaf limbs of plantlets cultivated in sterile conditions on a Murashige and Skoog's modified medium. Non organogenous calluses were obtained with addition of BA or kinetin (10-5M to 10-6M) as the cytokinin and 2,4-d or NAA (10-5M to 10-6M) as the auxin. These(More)
The uptake of mineral nutrients from two media with different mineral composition, a classical MSA medium and a modified MH2 medium, by Saponaria officinalis (soapwort) cells was studied over a growth cycle of 14 days, by continuous measurement of mineral consumption without opening the culture flasks. The mineral composition of the MH2 medium was found to(More)
