The plants with various dosages of inserted Bt genes were developed by intercrossing among transgenic Bt lines in which Bt genes were inserted in different chromosomes, and commercial non-transgenic Bt varieties. Laboratory bioassay of insect-resistance and Bt toxin protein assays with ELISA were used to detect efficacy to bollworm in different cotton(More)
Annexins constitute a family of multifunction and structurally related proteins. These proteins are ubiquitous in the plant kingdom, and are important calcium-dependent membrane-binding proteins that participate in the polar development of different plant regions such as rhizoids, root caps, and pollen tube tips. In this study, a novel cotton annexin gene(More)
Genetic diversity of Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cultivars was evaluated by SSR, ISSR, and RAPD. The genomic DNAs of 36 domestic and exotic cultivars were amplified with 81 SSR primer pairs; 7 ISSR primers and 53 RAPD primers, which yielded 282 polymorphic bands. The range of pair similarity coefficient (Nei, M. And W. Li 1979) between cultivars(More)
Twenty cross combinations were made with 4 recessive glandless lines (gl2gl2 gl3gl3) used as females and 5 dominant glandless lines (Gl2eGl2e Gl3Gl3) used as male parents to estimate the genetic variance components of kernel oil and protein content of seeds, oil and protein index, and kernel index using a genetic model for parents, F2 and F3. The results(More)
A G. anomalum introgression line, 7235, characterized as super quality fiber properties, was used to identify molecular markers linked to fiber property QTLs. By use of (7235 x TM-1)F2 in Nanjing and College Station, USA, and (7235 x TM-1)F3 in Nanjing and Hainan. Bulked segregation analysis was employed to produce 3 pairs of mixed DNA pools for fiber(More)
Chirality transmission from point chirality to helical chirality was explored using triarylsilyl ethers. Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy was employed to show that the alcohol stereocenter of silylated, enantiopure secondary alcohols can transmit chirality to the aryl groups on the silicon resulting in a higher population of one helical conformation(More)
