Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. [] Key Result Out of these accessions, 310 were rhizome lotus which contains 201 landraces and 109 breeding lines; 229 were flower lotus including 172 cultivars and 57 breeding lines; and the rest 33 were seed lotus with 18 cultivars.

Genetic resources of lotus (Nelumbo) and their improvement

Lotus ( Nelumbo ) is one of the top ten flowers in China, which has high ornamental, edible and medicinal value. Lotus has a been cultivated for thousands of years. Through discovery and cultivation,

Comparative analysis of genetic diversity in sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) using AFLP and SSR markers

It is shown that sacred lotus exhibited a low level of genetic diversity, which may attribute to asexual reproduction and long-term artificial selection, and knowledge of the genetic diversity and genetic relatedness of N. nucifera is potentially useful to improve the current strategies in breeding and germplasm conservation.

In vitro Propagation of Red Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn) - An Aquatic Edible Plant in Vietnam

The optimum formula for seeds of Vinh Thanh Red Lotus is to sterilize surface of seeds by 70% ethanol for 30 seconds and then HgCl2 0.1% for 16 minutes, which is the appropriate formula for shoot regeneration, multiple shoot clumps induction, root induction of multipleshoot clumps and acclimatization.

A model for integrated approach to germplasm conservation of Asian lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.)

Possible conservation strategies are proposed with a view to draw the attention of policy makers and stakeholders for prioritizing this species in various biodiversity-related programs of the country, besides promoting it as a potential food and nutraceutical species.

Genetic diversity and differentiation of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) accessions assessed by simple sequence repeats

The results herein indicated that the current levels of genetic diversity and differentiation between the lotuses have been greatly influenced by artificial selection.

The level of genetic diversity and differentiation of tropical lotus, Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. (Nelumbonaceae) from Australia, India, and Thailand

It is proposed that complementary conservation approaches ought to be introduced to conserve tropical lotus, depending on the genetic variations and threat levels in populations.

genetic diversity of flower lotus nelumbo adans cultivars assessed by ssr markers

Lotus (Nelumbo Adans.) is an important aquatic crop in Asia, Oceania and North America. Flower lotus is widely used in aquatic gardens for its high ornamental value. To determine its genetic

Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) and Its Bioactive Phytocompounds: A Tribute to Cancer Prevention and Intervention

The effects of N. nucifera extracts, fractions and pure compounds on various organ-specific cancer cells and tumor models are analyzed to understand the cancer-preventive and therapeutic potential and underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of action of this interesting medicinal and dietary plant.

Unraveling the seed endosperm proteome of the lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) utilizing 1DE and 2DE separation in conjunction with tandem mass spectrometry

A proteome catalog of the lotus plant is developed, starting with its seed, the nutrient rich food source, where the most abundant protein functions were in categories of metabolic activities related to carbohydrate metabolism and nutrient storage.



Zizania latifolia Turcz. cultivated in China

Zizania latifolia, which belongs to the tribe Oryzeae, has been cultivated for more than 2000 years and has historically been used in China mainly as an aquatic vegetable. In China, the largest area

Genetic diversity of Nelumbo accessions revealed by RAPD

Principal Coordinate Analysis (PCA) indicated that the genetic diversity of Nelumbo accessions was not evenly distributed, instead, was presented by a clustered distribution pattern, and neither the UPGMA dendrogram nor the PCA analysis exhibited strict relationship with geographic distribution and morphotypes among the accessions.

Cluster Analysis of Nelumbo Accessions Based on RAPD Markers

Lotus with flowers, lotus with seeds and lotsus with root might be derived from different wild lotus, similar to the traditional horticaltural classification of N. lutea and lotus accessions with flower.

Classification of lotus cultivars according to the dual classification system for ornamental plants

The basic contents of the dual classification system for ornamental plants are recommended, after the present state of cultivar classification systems which have paid much emphasis on practical
