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 ...

Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to understand the molecular mechanisms during the graft union healing process. In the present study, cDNA-amplified fragment length polymorphism (cDNA-AFLP) analysis was used to examine gene expression in Pyrus ussuriensis Maxim micro-grafting plantlets at four...

Abstract

Choclero is a Chilean pre-Columbian floury corn with great economic value. The genebanks network of the Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias (INIA) have preserved the largest Choclero corn collection, which is underutilized despite the existence of several Choclero breeding programs. This...

Abstract

We previously transformed cabbage plants with a Bacillus thuringiensiscry1Ia8 gene. The resulting transgenic plants were able to control both susceptible and Cry1Ac-resistant Plutella xylostella larvae. For practical applications, transgenes should be inherited in a stable and predictable manner....

Abstract

Changes in ascorbic acid levels and gene expression of its biosynthetic pathway were studied in Solanum lycopersicum plants inoculated with Eggplant Mottled Dwarf Virus (EMDV). Data showed that EMDV inoculation caused a significant decrease of tAsA in the leaves of two ecotypes at 7 dpi, before...

Abstract

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is cultivated by extensive vegetative propagation, which may lead to germplasm degradation, the accumulation of various viruses, a low propagation coefficient, and high production costs. Tissue culture is the most effective method for the rapid propagation and germplasm...

Abstract

Male sterility is commonly and widely used for hybrid seed production in Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis (B. rapa), and some genes related to anther and pollen development may play significant roles in pollen fertility. Hence, in this study, we performed whole-genome scanning and identified 38...

Abstract

In vitro clonal propagation of small fruit species has been one of the most broadly exploited approaches in biotechnology. However, the most critical aspect of this propagation technology has been the maintenance of genetic fidelity of tissue culture-raised plants. In the present study, three...
