Analysis of sucrose synthase genes in citrus suggests different roles and phylogenetic relationships.
The purpose of this work was 2-fold; first, a molecular/evolutionary characterization of three sucrose synthase genes from citrus, and second, an analysis of their differential expression related toExpand
Combination of thidiazuron and basal media with low salt concentrations increases the frequency of shoot organogenesis in soybeans [Glycine max (L.) Merr.]
Abstract A successful, efficient system for multiple soybean shoot induction of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is reported. Multiple shoots were induced from cotyledonary nodes and hypocotylExpand
Identification of cis-regulatory elements required for endosperm expression of the rice storage protein glutelin gene GluB-1
Rice storage protein glutelin genes are coordinately regulated during seed development. A previous 5′ deletion analysis using transgenic tobacco revealed that the minimum 5′ region necessary forExpand
Physiological changes in gentian axillary buds during two-step preculturing with sucrose that conferred high levels of tolerance to desiccation and cryopreservation.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Induction of dehydration tolerance is a key to achieving high survival rates in cryopreservation of plant specimens. It has been reported previously that two-step preculturingExpand
Incongruence between RFLPs of chloroplast DNA and morphological classification in east Asian pear (Pyrus spp.)
Polymorphism of chloroplast DNA of 106 accessions of Pyrus (mainly east Asian accessions) was examined. Four haplotypes were observed with the combination of three independent restriction siteExpand
Cryopreservation of in vitro grown shoot tips of cherry and sweet cherry by one-step vitrification
Abstract In vitro grown shoot tips of cherry (Prunus jamasakura Seib. cv. Sendaiya) were successfully cryopreserved by one-step vitrification. After the last subculture, 3-week-old shoots wereExpand
The rice mitochondrial nad3 gene has an extended reading frame at its 5′ end: nucleotide sequence analysis of rice trnS, nad3, and rps12 genes
SummaryThe nucleotide sequences of the tRNASer (trnS), pseudo-tRNA, NADH dehydrogenase subunit 3 (nad3), and ribosomal protein S12 (rps12) genes from rice mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were determined.Expand
Analysis of mitochondrial genomes amongCitrus plants produced by the interspecific somatic fusion of ‘Seminole’ tangelo with rough lemon
Interspecific somatic fusion was performed between ‘Seminole’ tangelo (Citrus reticulata Blanco xC. paradisi Macf.) protoplasts isolated from embryogenic callus and rough lemon (C. jambhiri Lush.)Expand
Shoot Formation and Plant Regeneration of Vegetative Pear Buds Cryopreserved at -150 °C
Vegetative winter buds of pear (Pyrus communis L. cv. Beurre d'Amanlis) were successfully cryopreserved at -150 °C after pre-freezing to -30 °C. Meristems were excised from the buds and cultured onExpand
A novel preculture method for the induction of desiccation tolerance in gentian axillary buds for cryopreservation
Abstract Axillary buds of in vitro-grown gentian (Gentiana scabra Bunge var. buergeri Maxim.) were successfully desiccated and cryopreserved using a novel two-step preculture method: preculturingExpand
