Comparative karyology, DNA methylation and restriction pattern analysis of male and female plants of the dioecious alga Chara tomentosa (Charophyceae)
High-performance liquid chromatography showed that the cytosine methylation level in female plants of Chara tomentosa reached 5·9%, while in male plants it reached 9·1%, and karyological analysis did not show any differences in metaphase chromosome number or morphology between sexes.
Short Interspersed Elements (SINEs) in plant genomes
An unusually high number of direct repeats detected by sequence analysis of the dispersed EcoRI-family fragments in Lupinus luteus L.
Two EcoRI molecules, 1071 and 1079 base pairs in length, were cloned, sequenced and compared and revealed a number of short direct repeats involved in the formation of the EcoRI-family fragments.
Transformed Root Extract of Leonurus sibiricus Induces Apoptosis through Intrinsic and Extrinsic Pathways in Various Grades of Human Glioma Cells
It is demonstrated for the first time that TR extract from L. sibiricus root has the potential to activate apoptosis in grade I-III human glioma cells through the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways.

Chloroplasts: state of research and practical applications of plastome sequencing
In recent years, plastome transformation emerged as a promising alternative to nuclear transformation because of high yield of target protein, removing the risk of outcrossing with weeds, lack of silencing mechanisms, and ability to engineer the entire metabolic pathways rather than single gene traits.

Novel SINEs families in Medicago truncatula and Lotus japonicus: bioinformatic analysis.
Production of recombinant colicin M in Nicotiana tabacum plants and its antimicrobial activity
It is demonstrated that purified colicin retains its antibacterial activity against the control Escherichia coli strains and clinical isolates of EscherICHia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae and is not toxic for L929 and HeLa cell line, which allows us to suppose that plant-based expression could be an alternative production method of such important proteins.
