A low frequency androgenesis was inducedin vitro in all experimental variants ofCapsicum anthers cultured in standard and minimalized media. The embryogenic frequency was stimulated by the presence of activated charcoal which also prolonged the vitality of the culture. The percentage of embryoids growing to complete plants increased, if the embryoids were(More)
Somatic hybridization of Brassica oleracea (cauliflower, cabbage, kohlrabi) and Armoracia rusticana (horseradish) protoplasts was performed to test the possibility of the formation of intergeneric hybrids. Out of three B. oleracea crops tested only cauliflower (B. oleracea var. botrytis) yielded viable hybrids when fused with horseradish protoplasts.(More)
The precise delineation of the size, shape, and location of an osseous bridge is a critical step in the management of children who have a partial growth arrest of the epiphyseal plate. Five children between the ages of ten and fourteen years were diagnosed, with the aid of conventional roentgenograms, as having a partial growth arrest. Magnetic(More)
Studies on protoplasts isolation were carried out with mature pollen grains of 29 samples of species of Allium aflatunense, A. cepa, A. fistulosum, A. karataviense, A. longicuspis, A. nutans, A. odorum, A. sativum and A. schoenoprasum. Surface sterilized pollen grains drifted from crushed anthers were incubated in an enzyme solution containing 1% (w/v)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE acute ischemic stroke (AIS) may occur both in the acute and chronic internal carotid artery occlusion (ICAo). Thus, it is important to assess the ICAo character when considering the recanalization method. The aim was to assess the agreement between the ultrasonographic (US) and perioperative macroscopic (PM) finding in AIS patients(More)
The accessions of the morel (Morchellaceae, Ascomycota) germplasm collection were genetically analyzed, in order to determine both their inter- and intraspecific relationships. This was done as a starting point for cultivation experiments, as well as to provide a genetic description of invasive morel populations linked to mulched garden patches, as compared(More)
Globular embryoids were continually produced in anther cultures of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Samsun) from the pool of resting microspores if the iron-free medium was used. The supplement of iron stopped the development of fresh early embryoids still inducing continual conversion of the resting globular embryoids into torpedo-shaped embryoids, and(More)
Neither the incubation of the flower scapes of garlic (Allium sativum L.) in tetracycline solution nor the extirpation of the bulblets from the inflorescences led to the development of fertile binuclear pollen. Higher tetracycline concentrations than 125 mg per litre showed a clearly phytotoxic effect. The removal of the bulblets from the inflorescences(More)
