Genome Characterization, Prevalence and Distribution of a Macula-Like Virus from Apis mellifera and Varroa destructor
Around 14 distinct virus species-complexes have been detected in honeybees, each with one or more strains or sub-species. Here we present the initial characterization of an entirely new virusExpand

Apis florea in Jordan: source of the founder population
A recent isolated population of Apis florea has been reported from Aqaba in Jordan at the Red Sea, consisting of numerous colonies within a still limited range which apparently is expanding. ThisExpand

A superior method for the reduction of secondary phosphine oxides.
[reaction: see text] Diisobutylaluminum hydride (DIBAL-H) and triisobutylaluminum have been found to be outstanding reductants for secondary phosphine oxides (SPOs). All classes of SPOs can beExpand

Characterization of Jordanian olive cultivars (Olea europaea L.) using RAPD and ISSR molecular markers
Thirteen Jordanian olive cultivars (Olea europaea L.) were characterized using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSRs) markers. Using 15 RAPD and 14 ISSRExpand

First Detection of Honey Bee Viruses in Jordan by RT-PCR
Mortality of honeybees is a serious problem that beekeepers have to face periodically in Jordan and worldwide. The presence of honeybee viruses, in addition to other pathogens and parasites may beExpand

Chromatographic and spectroscopic studies on the chiral recognition of sulfated beta-cyclodextrin as chiral mobile phase additive enantiomeric separation of a chiral amine.
A fast enantiomeric separation of a chiral aromatic amine was achieved, using ultra high pressure liquid chromatography and highly sulfated beta-cyclodextrin (S-beta-CD) as a chiral additive in theExpand

Convergent synthesis of the quinolone substructure of BILN 2061 via carbonylative Sonogashira coupling/cyclization.
A convergent synthesis of quinolone 2 (key substructure of the protease inhibitor BILN 2061) was developed via palladium-catalyzed carbonylation of 2-iodo-5-methoxyaniline (4) with thiazolylacetyleneExpand

Epimerization reaction of a substituted vinylcyclopropane catalyzed by ruthenium carbenes: mechanistic analysis.
A novel ruthenium carbene-catalyzed epimerization of vinylcyclopropanes is reported. The reaction rate strongly depends on the presence of ruthenium ligands in solution. When the first-generationExpand

Next-generation sequence data demonstrate several pathogenic bee viruses in Middle East and African honey bee subspecies (Apis mellifera syriaca, Apis mellifera intermissa) as well as their
RNA viruses are associated with honey bee (Apis mellifera) colony losses in many parts of the world. Their consequences may be exacerbated when the ectoparasite mite Varroa destructor is present inExpand

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Egyptian honey bee, Apis mellifera lamarckii (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Apidae)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of the western honey bee subspecies Apis mellifera lamarckii was sequenced. This mitochondrial genome is 16,589 bp in length with 37 classical eukaryoticExpand
