Abstract

The bottle gourd or calabash [Lagenaria siceraria (Mol.) Standl.] (2n=2x=22), also known as opo squash or long melon, is an important cucurbit crop worldwide. Commonly used as a vegetable, bottle gourd fruits have a peculiar umami taste that is important for their market value. To date, the umami...

Abstract

Grape (Vitis vinifera L.) is one of the most important fruit crops in the world. In the present study, morphological variation and marker-fruit trait association were investigated in a collection of Iranian grapes. The studied genotypes were phenotypically diverse, which vine, leaf, bunch, and...

Abstract

Loquat (Eriobotrya japonica Lindl) is an evergreen fruit tree and belongs to Maloideae in the Rosaceae, which carries the RNase-dependent gametophytic self-incompatibility system (GSI). Use of appropriate pollinator trees is essential for increasing fruit production. S-allele specific amplification...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The prediction of complex or quantitative traits from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes has transformed livestock and plant breeding, and is also playing an increasingly important role in prediction of human disease. Genomic predictions are made using a prediction equation derived from...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Many secondary metabolites in plants are involved in a range of plant physiological processes including abiotic stress tolerance. Major polyamine (PA) compounds including putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm) have structural, functional and regulatory activities that allow them to...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The field of forest genomics is rapidly expanding, and many new potential uses of the genetic information gained are being developed. Some of these uses are primarily economic in nature, such as increasing the growth rate of trees and increasing yields for woody biomass, or producing trees with...

AbstractFull Text

Photosystem II subunit R (PsbR) is a small subunit protein in photosystem II and plays important roles in photosynthetic physiology of plants. To investigate the function of PsbR in winter turnip rape (Brassica campestris), a strong cold-tolerance winter turnip rape cultivar "Longyou 7" was used as...
