Low proportion of essential amino acids (EAAs) is one of the barriers for animals to use phloem as a diet. Endosymbionts with EAAs synthesis functions are considered crucial for ameliorating the lack of EAAs in insects' diets. In this study, we transferred the insects from a cabbage-reared Myzus persicae population onto 3 new plant species including(More)
An updated comparative analysis of protamines and their corresponding genes is presented, including representative organisms from each of the vertebrate classes and one invertebrate (squid, Loligo opalescens). Special emphasis is placed on the implications for sperm chromatin organization and the evolutionary significance. The review is based on some of the(More)
Pear is a fruit species with worldwide distribution belonging to the Rosaceae family. In this study, transcriptomes of 12 different tissues of pear were newly assembled, with a total of 17,353 SSR loci identified. Within these, repetitive sequences with dinucleotide and trinucleotide motifs were more abundant than other types. We developed 194 EST-SSR(More)
—Early research progress in the realization of the Quanta Image Sensor is reported. Simulation of binary data acquisition and image formation was performed. Initial analysis and simulation of a readout signal chain has been performed and bounds on power dissipation established. Photodetector device concepts have been explored using TCAD. I.

Pear is one of the most important temperate fruits, with high genetic diversity, but controversial classification for some genotypes or species. Our study evaluates the polymorphism of 385 pear resources belonging to five cultivated species or interspecies of Pyrus, based on a set of 134 core simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. A total of 690 variant(More)
Inter-retrotransposon amplified polymorphisms (IRAP) are one of the main components of the retrotransposon-based molecular marker system, but currently have no applications in pear. In this context, new IRAP markers were developed and used to study the genetic polymorphism of pear cultivars and bud mutants. In total, eight polymorphic IRAP markers were(More)
