One hundred and thirty-five microsatellite markers were developed for hop Humulus lupulus L. from di- and trinucleotide-enriched libraries. Seventy-eight primers showed amplification in two tested genotypes. Twenty-four loci were further characterized on a population of 34 hop samples and the number of alleles per locus, observed heterozygosity and expected(More)
A specific form of gene silencing that was observed visually as a mosaic distribution of fluorescent and non-fluorescent cells apparently dispersed at random within tissues was found in a few green fluorescent protein (GFP)-transformed tobacco lines. To characterize this event quantitatively, we studied flow cytometric measurements in GFP-expressing and(More)
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and microsatellite (SSR) markers were applied to a segregation population of 111 genotypes derived from a pseudo-testcross of hop (Humulus lupulus L.) in order to detect quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for alpha-acid content and yield traits. A total of 199 markers (150 AFLPs, 43 SSRs, one hypothetical sex(More)
A novel method for direct organogenesis in onion (Allium cepa L.) resulting in the formation of multiple shoot structures induced on mature flower buds or ovaries in a two-step culture procedure is described. Flowers were cultured on an induction medium containing 2 mg/l 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 2 mg/l 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP). After 6(More)
Nodes with dormant buds from flower stalks of orchid Phalaenopsis sp. were plated on six culture media. The composition of the culture media affected the induction, regeneration, number and form of Phalaenopsis regenerants. We managed to obtain direct shoot regeneration without callus formation on all media except for medium F. Medium A, supplemented with 2(More)
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of tobacco leaf disks with Agrobacterium tumefaciens (A. t.) strain LBA4404 and two plasmids (pCAMBIA1390-DsRed and pART27 2mgfp5ER) was used for introducing red fluorescent gene (DsRed), green fluorescent gene (gfp) and corresponding selection genes (hptII for resistance to antibiotic hygromycin and nptII for(More)
Verticillium wilt (VW) can cause substantial yield loss in hop particularly with the outbreaks of the lethal strain of Verticillium albo-atrum. To elucidate genetic control of VW resistance in hop, an F1 mapping population derived from a cross of cultivar Wye Target, with the predicted genetic basis of resistance, and susceptible male breeding line BL2/1(More)
Seven commercial hybrids of Phalaenopsis were included in an asymbiotic germination experiment. Plants differed in size and color of flowers and number of inflorescences and flowers. A total of 109 flowers were included of which 60 or 55% were cross-pollinated and reciprocally pollinated. Seed capsules developed on 46 (76.7%) fertilized flowers. Of these,(More)
Data mining of gene sequences available from various projects dealing with the development of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) can contribute to the discovery of new microsatellite markers. Our aim was to develop new microsatellite markers in hop isolated from an enriched cDNA library and from coding GenBank sequences and to test their suitability in hop(More)
Artificial propagation of endangered orchid species is one of the most important actions of conservationists often jeopardized by low numbers of acquired seed, its contamination and viability. Disinfection and chemical composition of media are two of the most important factors contributing to better germination in temperate orchid species. The article deals(More)
