Six laticiferous system characters were investigated in 22 three-year-old, half-sib rubber tree [Hevea brasiliensis (Willd. ex Adr. de Juss.) Muell.-Arg.] progenies, evaluated at three sites (Votuporanga, Pindorama and Jaú, all in the São Paulo State, Brazil). The traits examined were: average rubber yield (Pp), average bark thickness (Bt), number of latex(More)
Neurotransmitter release from synaptic vesicles is mediated by complex machinery, which includes the v- and t-SNAP receptors (SNAREs), vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP), synaptotagmin, syntaxin, and synaptosome-associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25). They are essential for neurotransmitter exocytosis because they are the proteolytic substrates of(More)
Botulinum neurotoxins type A and E (BoNT/A and /E) are metalloproteases with a unique specificity for SNAP-25 (synaptosomal-associated protein of 25 kDa), an essential protein component of the neuroexocytotic machinery. It was proposed that this specificity is based on the recognition of a nine-residue sequence, termed SNARE motif, which is common to the(More)
The best-yielding, best vigour and most stable Hevea clones are identified by growing clones in different environments. However, research on the stability in Hevea brasiliensis (Willd. Adr. ex Juss.) Muell.-Arg. is scarce. The objectives of this work were to assess genotype-environment interaction and determine stable genotypes. Stability analysis were(More)
