Induced tetraploidy restores fertility in sterile cultivars of Bougainvillea. However, like the fertile diploid cultivars induced tetraploids are self-incompatible, but set seeds readily on crossing. Diploid progenitors show irregular meiosis, while in tetraploid counterparts there is predominant bivalent pairing. Low frequency of quadrivalents at 4x level(More)
Integrating nephelometers are commonly used to monitor airborne particulate matter. However, they must be calibrated prior to use. The Rayleigh scattering coefficients (b(RS), Mm(-1)), scattering cross sections (σ(RS), cm(2)), and Rayleigh multipliers for tetrafluoromethane (R-14), sulfur hexafluoride, pentafluoroethane (HFC-125), hexafluoropropene(More)
A case of interchange heterozygosity has been found inB. peruviana cv “Princess Margaret Rose” in which there is a regular formation of 15 bivalents and an interchange multiple of 4 chromosomes. The multiple is always associated with the nucleolus at diakinesis, indicating that one of the chromosome involved is nucleolar. The nucleolar pair of chromosomes(More)
Karyotypic analysis of a spontaneous monosomic plant isolated from a population ofSesbania macrocarpa (2n=4x=24) revealed that one chromosome of the smallest set was missing. The absence of this chromosome caused a deleterious effect on the meiotic system of the plant, resulting in total male and female sterility. The origin of the species in this context(More)
Isozyme banding pattern was studied in Guinea grass (Panicum maximum Jacq.), a widely cultivated grass having good fodder value. Similarity among 63 accessions collected from diverse sources was worked out using five enzyme systems (SOD, GOT, ACP, Esterase and Peroxidase) following horizontal starch gel electrophoresis. Biochemical markers such as isozymes(More)
New tri-species hybrids (GOS) in the genus Pennisetum involving the cultivated species pearl millet (P. glaucum L.) and two wild species, viz. P. squamulatum Fresen and P. orientale L. C. Rich, are reported. Six hybrid plants were recovered after crossing a backcross hybrid (2n = 3x = 23, GGO) between P. glaucum (2n = 2x = 14, GG) and P. orientale (2n = 2x(More)
PURPOSE Primary open angle glaucoma-associated mutations in myocilin (MYOC) cause protein "nonsecretion," rendering secreted MYOC difficult to detect using conventional techniques. This study focused on developing and using an assay that can quickly and easily detect mutant MYOC secretion. METHODS We fused Gaussia luciferase (eGLuc2) to MYOC variants and(More)
