Molecular and phytochemical characterization of Acalypha indica L. in Tirunelveli hills.

  title={Molecular and phytochemical characterization of Acalypha indica L. in Tirunelveli hills.},
  author={A. John de Britto and G. S. Rekha},
In the present study, Acalypha indica L. was collected from ten locations in Tirunelveli hills and the genetic variability was investigated using RAPD-PCR fingerprint and the population which showed high percentage of polymorphism was selected. The selected populations were further subjected to phytochemical analysis. The active principle in these plants was quantified by HPLC analysis. The population which exhibited both high percentage of polymorphism and high amount of active principle was…

Genetic diversity among nine species of Lippia (Verbenaceae) based on RAPD Markers
RAPD analysis was efficient to address the genetic diversity of Lippia species and contributed to understand the adaptation to the environment, conservation and taxonomic implications.
Analysis of genetic diversity in Indian taro [Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott] using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers
Usefulness of DNA markers such as RAPD in characterising and assessing the genetic diversity in Indian taro germplasm is demonstrated and presence of a very close genepool of the wild, weedy and cultivated forms with extreme levels of phenotypic and genotypic variation is suggested.
Molecular diversity in Phyllanthus amarus assessed through RAPD analysis
The study indicates the random hybridization across the populations falling within the range of possible cross-pollination in terms of physical distance and also overlaps in the phylogenetic clustering.
Genetic variation and relationship among and within Withania species as revealed by AFLP markers.
The present work revealed low levels of variation within a population though high levels of polymorphism were detected between Nagori and Kashmiri populations, demonstrating the ability of AFLP markers for efficient and rapid detection of genetic variations at the species as well as intraspecific level qualifies it as an efficient tool for estimating genetic similarity in plant species and effective management of genetic resources.
Analysis of neolignans compounds of Piper regnellii (Miq.) C. DC. var. pallescens (C. DC.) Yunck by HPLC.
A high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method was developed and validated for quantitative determination of neolignans in extracts of Piper regnellii var. pallescens. The analysis were
Genetic diversity of Ocimum gratissimum L. based on volatile oil constituents, flavonoids and RAPD markers.
Cluster analysis of RAPD markers showed that there are three groups that are distinct genetically and highly correlated to volatile oil constituents.
Empirical assessment of allozyme and RAPD variation in Pinus sylvestris (L.) using haploid tissue analysis
RAPD analysis provides genetic information similar to that revealed by analysis of allozyme variation, concordant with theoretical results suggesting that analysis of RAPD variation in diploid material can produce unreliable estimates of population-genetic parameters.
Assessing population genetic structure and variability with RAPD data: Application to Vaccinium macrocarpon (American Cranberry)
The AMOVA and HOMOVA methods provide flexible population analysis tools when using data from RAPD or other DNA methods that provide many polymorphic markers with or without direct allelic data.
DNA polymorphisms amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers.
A new DNA polymorphism assay based on the amplification of random DNA segments with single primers of arbitrary nucleotide sequence is described, suggesting that these polymorphisms be called RAPD markers, after Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA.
