Apomixis results in the production of genetically uniform progeny, derived from the fertilization independent development (parthenogenesis) of an unreduced egg cell (apomeiosis). To identify genes involved in the apomeiosis, a comparative transcriptome analysis of differentially expressed genes during embryo sac (ES) development in a sexual Pennisetum(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify the most commonly aspirated airway foreign bodies (FBs) and identify opportunities for intervention. METHODS Literature was searched and pertinent articles from 1968 to 2010 (n=58; 14 articles were from the United States and 41 international) were reviewed. A list of the most commonly retrieved FBs resulted from the analysis. (More)
The embryo rescue technique was successfully used to raise hybrids between Trifolium alexandrinum and T. constantinopolitanum. As a result of its narrow genetic base, genetic improvement in Egyptian clover (syn. Berseem; T. alexandrinum), an important fodder crop in tropical and subtropical countries, is hampered, thereby making it imperative to introduce(More)
Apomixis in plants consists of asexual reproduction by seeds. Here we characterized at structural and functional levels an apomixis-linked sequence of Paspalum simplex homologous to subunit 3 of the ORIGIN RECOGNITION COMPLEX (ORC3). ORC is a multiprotein complex which controls DNA replication and cell differentiation in eukaryotes. Three PsORC3 copies were(More)
The genus Trifolium Leguminosae (Fabaceae), commonly called clovers, includes 237-290 annual and perennial species, of which about 20 are important as cultivated and pasture crops. Taxonomic distribution supported by molecular analysis indicates that Mediterranean region is one of the main centers of distribution of the genus and also a center of(More)
Egyptian clover (Trifolium alexandrinum), a multi-cut forage legume, is widely grown as an annual feed crop. Genetic improvement in this legume is largely hampered due to limited availability of genomic resources. Hence, a genomic library enriched for GA/CT motif was constructed to develop SSR primers. As a result, 667 SSR primer pairs were developed and(More)
Peptide mapping and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) were conducted to characterize the human genome-based recombinant proteins. Accurate mass values for the deleted forms of the myeloid progenitor inhibitory factor chemokine (MPIF-1d23), and the keratinocyte growth factor (KGF-2d33) were measured as 8848.55 +/- 0.25(More)
Stylosanthes seabrana (Maass and 't Mannetje) (2n = 2x = 20), commonly known as Caatinga stylo, is an important tropical perennial forage legume. In nature, it largely co-exist with S. scabra, an allotetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) species, sharing a very high similarity for morphological traits like growth habit, perenniality, fruit shape and presence of small(More)
