  • Journal of Plant Research
  • 19 March 2008
A phylogenetic analysis of Violaceae is presented using sequences from rbcL, atpB, matK and 18S rDNA from 39 species and 19 genera. The combined analysis of four molecular markers resulted in onlyExpand

Phylogenetic analyses of Malpighiales using plastid and nuclear DNA sequences, with particular reference to the embryology of Euphorbiaceae sens. str.
We present phylogenetic analyses of Malpighiales, which are poorly understood with respect to relationships within the order, using sequences from rbcL, atpB, matK and 18SrDNA from 103 genera in 23Expand

Ovules and Seeds in Subfamily Phyllanthoideae (Euphorbiaceae): Structure and Systematic Implications
Lingelsheimia) are distinct from the rest of the subfamily in having a thick inner integument (over six cells thick), an exotegmen composed of cuboidal cells (type II), and vascular bundles in theExpand

Mechanism of action of beta-glycerophosphate on bone cell mineralization.
Experiments were performed to determine whether beta-glycerophosphate (beta-GP) promoted mineralization in vitro by modulating bone cell metabolic activity and/or serving as a local source ofExpand

Ovules and seeds in Euphorbioideae (Euphorbiaceae): structure and systematic implications
Abstract. Ovule and seed structure in Euphorbioideae, one of the five euphorbiaceous subfamilies, is surveyed to evaluate its systematic implications on the basis of 79 species representing four ofExpand
