Abstract

Xinjiang 'Saimaiti' apricots in the green ripe stage were used as the experimental materials. The apricots were treated with spermidine (Spd) and D-arginine (D-Arg). Fruit firmness, ethylene production, 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic-acid (ACC) synthase activity, ACC oxidase activity and gene...

Abstract

Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii) is an important commercial species of cut flowers all around the world. Stem bending is a major disorder in cut gerbera flowers caused mainly by the lack of mechanical support in the flower stem. Lignin is the component of plant cell walls that provides strength. Three...

Abstract

Most almond cultivars are self-incompatible, and so to obtain a yield they need to be pollinated with cross-compatible cultivars. For an efficient use of these cultivars in growing and breeding, over the years many have been S-genotyped. This information has been included in consecutive tables of...

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...

AbstractFull Text

Salt stress is one of the most important abiotic stresses for agricultural crops and other plants. Salinity highly affects physical, physiological and metabolic responses of plants. Codon usage bias (CUB) and RNA secondary structures (RSS) were analyzed for salt stress responsive (SSR) genes of...
