Endogenous Peptide Signals in Arabidopsis thaliana, their receptors and their role in innate immunity

Mehdi Safaeizadeh

Volume 9, Issue 1 , June 2021, Pages 1-11

  In plant innate immunity, the first line of defense against microbial pathogens is triggered by the perception of molecular signatures of the pathogens, by a highly sensitive membrane resident immune receptors. These pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) are perceived by pattern-recognition ...  Read More

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genetic diversity detected by Inter Simple Sequence Repeat markers

Abdol reza Bagheri; Valiollah Ghasemi Omran; Mostafa Haghpanah

Volume 9, Issue 1 , June 2021, Pages 35-41

  Genetic relationships among twenty-three Chickpea genotypes include seven Chickpea cultivars, and 16 wild genotypes were analysed by 10 ISSR markers. On average, 11 bands per primer were observed, and 83.4 % polymorphic bands were shared in ISSR analysis. The results of clustering demonstrated the efficiency ...  Read More

Volume 9, Issue 1 , June 2021, Pages 42-61

  Algae are an enormous biological group, forming 50% of photosynthetic organisms. In addition to having chlorophyll for the absorption of light photons, algae are rich in red, orange, and yellow carotenoids, which mainly protect cells against harmful radiation and free radicals. Moreover, these organisms ...  Read More

Effects of plant growth regulators and organic compounds on callus induction and plant regeneration in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) using mature embryos

Seyyed Mehdi Eshagi; Ebrahim Dorani; Rustam Aghazadeh

Volume 9, Issue 1 , June 2021, Pages 62-69

  To establish a highly efficient plant regeneration system for some Iranian wheat, this study was done. MS mediums supplemented with different combinations of 2, 4-D, NAA, Dicamba, and different combinations of Thidiazuron and BAP, were evaluated for callus induction and regeneration respectively. The ...  Read More

Evaluation of Different Salinity Tolerance of Aeluropus and Rice Based on the Variation in Structure and Expression of their Catalase Enzyme

Masoud Fakhrfeshani; Ali Niazi; Fatemeh Keykha akhar; Pedram Assar; Leila Taghipour

Volume 9, Issue 1 , June 2021, Pages 70-78

  There is an imbalance between increase rate in demand for agricultural products and the growth rate of agricultural production. Much of this production deficit is attributed to abiotic stresses. These stresses reduce the yield of crops by more than 50%. Obviously, it worth studying any idea which may ...  Read More
