RNA-binding proteins play a major role in regulating mRNA metabolism in chloroplasts. In this work we characterized two proteins, of 43 and 47 kDa, which bind to the spinach psbA mRNA 5' untranslated region (psbA encoding the D1 protein of photosystem II). The 43 kDa protein, which is present in the stroma and in membranes, co-sediments with a complex of(More)
Marker-assisted selection has been widely implemented in crop breeding and can be especially useful in cases where the traits of interest show recessive or polygenic inheritance and/or are difficult or impossible to select directly. Most indirect selection is based on DNA polymorphism linked to the target trait, resulting in error when the polymorphism(More)
The analysis of F2 progeny and derived F3 families of Lactuca sativa segregating for resistance to corky root rot caused by Rhizomonas suberifaciens permitted the identification of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers linked to the recessive resistance gene cor. PCR-based markers were identified by(More)
We implement an efficient method to quantify time-dependent orbital complexity in gravitational N-body simulations. The technique, which we name DWaTIM, is based on a discrete wavelet transform of velocity orbital time series. The wavelet power-spectrum is used to measure trends in complexity continuously in time. We apply the method to the test cases N = 3(More)
