Genetic Similarity between Ottoman Strawberry and the Other Early-Period Strawberry Cultivars Assessed by RAPD Markers
(Austin Publishing Group, 2017)
Most of the local strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duchenese) cultivars of Turkey are not phylogenetically classified. This present study, which aimed discriminating the genetical relationships between the Ottoman ...
Applications of Ionizing Radiation in Mutation Breeding
As a predicted result of increasing population worldwide, improvements in the breeding strategies in agriculture are valued as mandatory. The natural resources are limited, and due to the natural disasters like sudden ...
Micropropagation of Anthurium spp

Bag-1L mediated chemoresistance mechanism through preventing downregulation of Mcl-1 and c-Raf by heat shock proteins in HeLa cells
Background: Cisplatin, a DNA damaging agent, induces apoptosis through increasing DNA fragmentation. However, identification of intrinsic resistance molecules against Cisplatin is vital to estimate the success of ...
Wnt-11 expression promotes invasiveness and correlates with survival in human pancreatic ductal adeno carcinoma
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, proving difficult to manage clinically. Wnt-11, a developmentally regulated gene producing a secreted protein, has been associated with various ...
Response of soybean plants to gamma radiation: Biochemical analyses and expression patterns of trichome development
This is the first report on soybean with the aim to show the effects of gamma radiation on trichome metabolim. Soybean seeds were subjected to 300 Gy gamma radiation at a dose rate of 10 Gy/min using a Cs-137 gamma source. ...
Inhibition Of Ornithine Decarboxylase Alters The Roscovitine-Induced Mitochondrial-Mediated Apoptosis In MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cells
(Spandidos Publ Ltd, Pob 18179, Athens, 116 10, Greece, 2012-05)
Polyamines (PAs) are small aliphatic amines that play a major role in multicellular functions. The PA levels are controlled by ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), the rate limiting enzyme of PA biosynthesis. alpha-difluoromet ...
Evaluation of Proline Accumulation and Delta(1)-pyrroline-5-carboxylate Synthetase (P5CS) Gene Expression during Salinity Stress in Two Soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) Varieties
(Hard, Post-Office Box, 10-718 Olsztyn 5, Poland, 2012)
The aim of our study was to compare the effects of salt stress in two soybean (Glycine max L. Merr) varieties. Two soybean genotypes (Ataem-7 and Ustun-1) were grown under 0, 50, 100, and 150 mM NaCl treatments, and the ...
Silencing Of The Polyamine Catabolic Key Enzyme SSAT Prevents CDK Inhibitor-Induced Apoptosis In Caco-2 Colon Cancer Cells
(Spandidos Publ Ltd, Pob 18179, Athens, 116 10, Greece, 2012-04)
Roscovitine and purvalanol are purine derivative cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors that induce apoptosis in various types of cancer cells. However, their impact on the apoptotic cell death mechanism requires further ...
Evaluation of biological activities of Physalis peruviana ethanol extracts and expression of Bcl-2 genes in HeLa cells
(Soc Brasileira Ciencia Tecnologia Alimentos, Av Brasil 2880, Caxia Postal 271 Cep 13001-970, Campinas, Sao Paulo 00000, Brazil, 2014)
Physalis species are used in folk medicine for phytotherapeutic properties. The extracts of medicinal plants are known to possess cytotoxic and chemopreventative compounds. In this study we investigated antibacterial, ...
