The SE7 somaclonal line of finger millet (Eleusine coracana) achieved increased grain yield in field trials that apparently resulted from a higher number of inflorescences and seeds per plant, compared with the wild type. Levels of endogenous cytokinins, especially those of highly physiologically active iso-pentenyl adenine, were increased during early(More)
Intron-specific DNA polymorphism is present amongplant β-tubulin gene family members and is considered to be one of the molecular markers based on thedifference of tubulin introns length assayed both separately (TBP: 1st intron) or in combination (h-TBP: 1st and 2nd introns). These two approaches arepossibly useful for wheat breeding programs, since TBP and(More)
Fiber flax is an important source of natural fiber and a comprehensive model for the plant fiber biogenesis studies. Cellulose-synthase (CesA) and cytoskeletal genes are known to be important for the cell wall biogenesis in general and for the biogenesis of flax fibers in particular. Currently, knowledge about activity of these genes during the plant growth(More)
