The genus Citrus includes mandarin, orange, lemon, grapefruit and lime, which have high economic and nutritional value. The family Rutaceae can be divided into 7 subfamilies, including Aurantioideae. The genus Citrus belongs to the subfamily Aurantioideae. In this study, we sequenced the chloroplast matK genes of 135 accessions from 22 genera of(More)
We sequenced the rbcL genes of 64 accessions from 24 genera of Citrus relatives and analyzed them by neighbor-joining and maximum parsimony methods. Both trees supported Swingle and Reece’s (1967) treatment of the subfamily Aurantioideae as monophyletic. However, the trees did not support Swingle and Reece’s treatment of tribes and subtribes. The subgenera(More)
PCR-RFLP analyses of three regions for each of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA; rbcL-ORF106, trnD-trnT, trnH-trnK) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA; nad7/exon2-exon3, nad7/exon3-exon4, 18S-5S) were performed in 26 cultivars of acid citrus grown in Japan to identify polymorphisms and classify them. The polymorphisms were compared with those of three true Citrus species,(More)
Susceptibility to Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri of a citrus cybrid, in which the nuclear and cytoplasmic genomes were derived from Citrus sinensis and C. unshiu, respectively, was evaluated. Bacterial growth in the leaves of the cybrid was similar to that in C. sinensis after pin-prick inoculation throughout the experiment, whereas growth was greater(More)
The central few hundred parsecs of the Milky Way host a massive black hole and exhibit very violent gas motion and high temperatures in molecular gas. The origin of these properties has been a mystery for the past four decades. Wide-field imaging of the (12)CO (rotational quantum number J = 1 to 0) 2.6-millimeter spectrum has revealed huge loops of dense(More)
Fluorochrome staining with chromomycin A3 (CMA) was used to characterize and compare the CMA banding patterns of chromosomes of 17 species from 13 genera of Aurantioideae, which is one of the seven subfamilies of Rutaceae. All species used in this study had 2n = 18 chromosomes. These chromosomes were classified into five types based on the number and(More)
The response of advection-dominated accretion disks to local disturbances is examined by one-dimensional numerical simulations. It is generally believed that advection-dominated disks are thermally stable. We, however, find that any disurbance added onto accretion flow at large radii does not decay so rapidly that it can move inward with roughly the(More)
We carried out two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic simulations of the Galactic gas disk to show that the dense loop-like structures discovered by the Galactic center molecular cloud survey by NANTEN 4 m telescope can be formed by the buoyant rise of magnetic loops due to the Parker instability. At the initial state, we assumed a gravitationally stratified(More)
Lime [Citrus aurantifolia (Cristm.) Swingle] is a Citrus species that is a popular ingredient in many cuisines. Some citrus plants are known to originate in the area ranging from northeastern India to southwestern China. In the current study, we characterized and compared limes grown in Bhutan (n = 5 accessions) and Indonesia (n = 3 accessions). The limes(More)
We study the magnetic reconnection for relativistic plasma in the framework of magnetohydrodynamics and by means of the Particle-In-Cell (PIC) simulation. In the former approach, the magnetic fields are assumed to reconnect steadily inside the diffusion region as assumed in the conventional Sweet-Parker model. The model takes account of the pressure(More)
