Alloplasmic common wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cultivais ‘Penjamo 62’ and ‘Siete Cerros 66’) with cytoplasms of wheatgrass (Agropyron trichophorum and Ag. glaucum) showed two aberrant phenotypes, i.e., gross reduction in plant vigor and male sterility. Plant vigor and male fertility were restored by cytoplasm-specific telocentric chromosomes (telosomes).(More)
Wheat yellow mosaic virus resistance of Madsen is governed by two complementary QTLs, Qym1 and Qym2 , located on chromosome arms 2DL and 3BS. Wheat yellow mosaic, caused by Wheat yellow mosaic virus (WYMV), is one of the most serious wheat diseases in East Asia. In this study, recombinant inbred lines (RILs, F9) from a cross between cultivars Madsen(More)
Wheat yellow mosaic virus (WYMV), a member of Bymovirus, is a plant pathogenic virus transmitted by the soil-borne plasmodiophorid Polymyxa graminis. The in planta titer of the virus must be quantified to elucidate the dynamics of WYMV infection and the mechanism(s) underlying host resistance. Here, we describe a robust and sensitive TaqMan-based real time(More)
A comparative evaluation of standard microdilution methods and a commercial kit for frozen plate antifungal susceptibility testing of yeasts was performed using amphotericin B, flucytosine, fluconazole, miconazole, and itraconazole on 200 yeast isolates. The isolates included 100 strains of Candida albicans, eight of C. tropicalis, twelve of C.(More)
Neuraminidase inhibitors are agents used against influenza viruses; however, the emergence of drug-resistant strains is a major concern. Recently, the prevalence of oseltamivir-resistant seasonal influenza A (H1N1) virus increased globally and the emergence of oseltamivir-resistant pandemic influenza A (H1N1) 2009 viruses was reported. In this study, we(More)
Fusarium head blight (FHB) is an important disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The aim of this study was to determine the effects of quantitative trait locus (QTL) regions for resistance to FHB and estimate their effects on reducing FHB damage to wheat in Hokkaido, northern Japan. We examined 233 F(1)-derived doubled-haploid (DH) lines from a cross(More)
Brown stem rot (BSR) caused by Cadophora gregata f. sp. adzukicola (syn. Phialophora gregata) is a serious soilborne disease of adzuki bean (Vigna angularis) in Japan. Cultivation of resistant cultivars is the most effective disease control method, therefore the selection of resistant lines is a priority for breeders. BSR-resistant adzuki bean lines have(More)
The aim of this 12-month retrospective study was to evaluate differences in the outcomes of denosumab alone or denosumab combined with vitamin D and calcium supplementation in patients having osteoporosis (OP) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Patients were divided into the denosumab monotherapy group (denosumab group, 22 cases) or denosumab plus vitamin D(More)
