Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus L.) is a perennial tuberous plant and a traditional inulin-rich crop in Thailand. It has become the most important source of inulin and has great potential for use in chemical and food industries. In this study, expressed sequence tag (EST)-based simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were developed from 40,362 Jerusalem artichoke ESTs retrieved from the NCBI database. Among 23,691 non-redundant identified ESTs, 1949 SSR motifs harboring 2 to 6… Expand
Genetic relationships in a germplasm collection of Camellia japonica and Camellia oleifera using SSR analysis.
Cluster analysis based on SSR data clustered genotypes showed clustering of genotypes into groups that agreed well with their taxonomic classification and geographic origin, and SSR profiles can improve C. japonica germplasm management and provide potential correlations between genetic relationship and graft compatibility among scions of C. oleifera.

SSR Analysis of the Chloroplast and Mitochondrial Genomes of Cultivar Lines and Wild Types of the Sunflower (Helianthus L.)
A set of novel polymorphic SSR markers can be useful for breeders and molecular biologists for the genetic diversity analysis, lines identification and improve breeding. Expand
Transcribed microsatellite allele lengths are often correlated with gene expression in natural sunflower populations
It is suggested that a substantial number of transcribed microsatellites can influence gene expression, and eSTRs are significantly enriched for GO terms associated with cis‐ and trans‐regulatory processes. Expand
Label-free quantitative proteomic analysis determines changes in amino acid and carbohydrate metabolism in three cultivars of Jerusalem artichoke tubers
Results from the inulin content measurement and proteome analysis suggest that Sucrose:sucrose 1-SST prioritizes inulin biosynthesis rather than rate-limiting enzyme fructan:fructan 1-fructosyltransferases (1-FFT), and provide the metabolic and molecular basis for understanding carbohydrate metabolism in the tuber tissue.
