Oil content and fatty acid composition were studied in developing seeds of Pongamia, at intervals of 30 days starting from 45 days after anthesis up to 255 days after anthesis. The oil content increased from 15.96 to 36.93 % as the seed matured. A significant variation in fatty acid composition of the oil was detected during seed development. Proportion of… (More)
North eastern (NE) India harbours a precious germplasm repository of Capsicum in the form of various landraces. The present study was undertaken to characterise the extent of genetic variation present in different Capsicum landraces from north eastern India. A set of 171 Capsicum accessions were characterised using three-endonuclease amplified fragment… (More)
Isolation and characterization of a first set of nine polymorphic microsatellite loci in Pongamia pinnata (Fabaceae).
The authors compared the utility of two variants of Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) technique, viz. 4-selective AFLP and three Endonuclease Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (TE-AFLP), for accurate assessment of genetic diversity in tea. These assays were optimized to resolve the reported discrepancies in detected levels of genetic… (More)
Phenotypic variation of important seed traits like seed length, seed breadth, seed thickness, 100 seed weight and seed oil content were recorded in a total of 157 collected accessions of Pongamia. Out of these, fatty acid profiles of 38 accessions selected based on their high and low oil content was analyzed. Fatty acid profile revealed high variability in… (More)
Hippophae rhamnoides L. belonging to family Elaeagnaceae has been a species of interest due to its high nutritional value. In the present study, a set of 26 novel microsatellites from Hippophae developed from an enriched genomic library using biotin labelled di, tri and tetra nucleotide repeats have been reported. Out of 108 clones sequenced, only 62… (More)
Rhizoctonia solani f. sp. sasakii causing banded leaf and sheath blight disease is one of the important pathogens of maize. It has rapidly gained economic importance in several parts of world and has potential to inflict economic loss up to 100 %. The disease, which is more prevalent in humid weather with temperature of around 28 °C, poses challenge to… (More)
OBJECTIVE Asymptomatic dilatation of bile duct and symptomatic sphincter of Oddi dysfunction have been reported in opium addicts. Except one case report, there is no report in the literature on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) study of pancreato-biliary system in opium addicts. The aim of the present study was to report the EUS features of pancreato-biliary… (More)
