Improved Catharanthus roseus cultivars are required for high yields of vinblastine, vindoline and catharanthine and/or serpentine and ajmalicine, the pharmaceutical terpenoid indole alkaloids. An approach to derive them is to map QTL for terpenoid indole alkaloids yields, identify DNA markers tightly linked to the QTL and apply marker assisted selection.(More)
Floricultural genotypes with new plant architecture were developed in the seasonal/perennial garden plant Catharanthus roseus. The new genotypes were developed by crossing the double mutant line lli egd of C. roseus with two horticultural lines of C. roseus and a line of Catharanthus trichophyllus. As compared to the normal LLI inflorescence architecture in(More)
UNIFOLIATA [(UNI) or UNIFOLIATA-TENDRILLED ACACIA (UNI-TAC)] expression is known to be negatively regulated by COCHLEATA (COCH) in the differentiating stipules and flowers of Pisum sativum. In this study, additional roles of UNI and COCH in P. sativum were investigated. Comparative phenotyping revealed pleiotropic differences between COCH (UNI-TAC and(More)
Catharanthus roseus leaves and roots hyper-accumulate the terpenoid indole alkaloids, which are required for the economic production of pharmaceutical molecules vindoline (V), catharanthine (C), vinblastine (VB), vincristine (VC), ajmalicine (A) and serpentine (S). For developing marker-assisted selection (MAS) breeding in C. roseus, the objectives of the(More)
Time to flowering in the winter growth habit bread wheat is dependent on vernalization (exposure to cold conditions) and exposure to long days (photoperiod). Dominant Vrn-1 (Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1 and Vrn-D1) alleles are associated with vernalization-independent spring growth habit. The semidominant Ppd-D1a mutation confers photoperiod-insensitivity or rapid(More)
Introduction In the last few decades, molecular biology has evolved and matured with the vast amount of biological data generated after the completion of Human Genome Project. In order to explicate the potential of this crucial information, storing and organizing this huge amount of data is a prerequisite. A large number of attempts have continuously been(More)
Introduction DNA, RNA and proteins are the most important constituent biopolymers of any cell. DNA acts as storage repository of information, which then is used by RNA for processing and giving instructions for the coding or expression of a protein. These proteins further act as the basic constructing units of the cell, as they are involved in almost each(More)
–In this research paper we are mainly focusing on NTRU Cryptosystems in mobile services mainly Short Message Service (SMS) and its security which is getting more popular now-a-days for commercial purposes. SMS was first used in December 1992, when Neil Papworth, a 22-year-old test engineer used a personal computer to send the text message "Merry Christmas"(More)
In Pisum sativum, the completely penetrant leaflet development (lld) mutation is known to sporadically abort pinnae suborgans in the unipinnate compound leaf. Here, the frequency and morphology of abortion was studied in each of the leaf suborgans in 36 genotypes and in presence of auxin and gibberellin, and their antagonists. Various lld genotypes were(More)
Do international organizations generate benchmarks and data as tools for policy enforcement or as tools of knowledge creation? This paper suggests the latter through a case study on the power of numbers in the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) Financial Sector Assessment Programme (FSAP). While the IMF is typically viewed as an institution that enforces(More)
