Application and development of Pig-a gene mutation assay.

Pig-a gene, located in the X-chromosome, is involved in the early step of glycosylphosphatidyl inositol (GPI) anchor synthesis pathway. Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, a rare acquired genetic disease characterized by GPI-anchored protein deficiencies, is probably caused by Pig-a gene mutation...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic analysis of core sets of colored maize and non-colored maize inbred lines using SSR markers.

In this study, genetic diversity, genetic relationship, population structure and association analysis among 12 colored and non-colored maize lines were investigated using 300 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In genetic diversity analysis, a total of 1,331 alleles were identified at all the...
