Panicum miliaceum (broomcorn millet) is a tetraploid cereal, which was among the first domesticated crops, but is now a minor crop despite its high water use efficiency. The ancestors of this species have not been determined; we aimed to identify likely candidates within the genus, where phylogenies are poorly resolved. Nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences(More)
In 1981 recurrent local bursts of mutability of the yellow gene were observed in a natural population of Drosophila melanogaster from Uman' (Ukraine). A series of y2-like mutations in the yellow gene were recovered during the period 1982 to 1991. Most of the mutants display the y2-phenotype, i.e. mutant yellow color of wings and body cuticle. Ninety-nine y2(More)
Waxy mutants, in which endosperm starch contains ~100% amylopectin rather than the wild-type composition of ~70% amylopectin and ~30% amylose, occur in many domesticated cereals. The cultivation of waxy varieties is concentrated in east Asia, where there is a culinary preference for glutinous-textured foods that may have developed from ancient food(More)
We compared the structure and mechanical properties of scaffolds based on pure collagen, pure chitosan, and a mixture of these polymers. The role of the composition and structure of scaffolds in the maintenance of cell functions (proliferation, differentiation, and migration) was demonstrated in two experimental models: homogeneous tissue analogues(More)
We apply the generalized Jordan sets techniques to reduce partial differential-operator equations with the Fredholm operator in the main expression to regular problems. In addition this techniques has been exploited to prove a theorem of existence and uniqueness of a singular initial problem, as well as to construct the left and right regularizators of(More)
