Salt-related Genes Expression Pattern in Salt-Tolerant and Salt-Sensitive Cultivars of Cotton (Gossypium sp.) under NaCl Stress

Nafise Taghizadeh; Gholam Ali Ranjbar; Ghorban Ali Nematzadeh; Mohammad Reza Ramazani Moghaddam

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 1-15

  Salinity is one of the most important limitation factors in development of agricultural products. Cotton has a relative tolerance to salinity; however, salinity reduces its growth during germination and seedling stages. In this research, split-factorial design of time based on randomized complete block ...  Read More

Genetic Linkage Map of Glu-D1 and Allelic Variation of HMW Glutenin Subunits in Some Iranian Bread Wheat genotypes

Amin Azadi; Saeedeh Khani Bafrouei

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 16-23

  High-molecular weight (HMW (glutenin subunits are encoded by the Glu-1 loci (Glu-A1, Glu-B1 and Glu-D1 (on the long arms of chromosomes 1A, 1B and 1D. In the present study, we constructed genetic linkage map of Glu-D1and then investigated the allelic variation of HMW glutenin subunits at Glu-A1 and Glu-D1 ...  Read More

Maryam Mofid Nakhaei; Vahid Abdossi; Ali Dehestani; Hematollah Pirdashti; Valiollah Babaeizad

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 24-33

  Pythium ultimum is one of the major causative agents responsible for damping off disease in cucumber plants. In the present study, the effect of potassium phosphite (KPhi) on defense response of P. ultimum-inoculated cucumber plants was investigated. Different plant growth parameters as well as chlorophyll ...  Read More

Mahnaz Rahmati; Mohsen Mardi; Mohammad-Reza Naghavi; Eslam Majidi Heravan; Babak Nakhoda; Amin Azadi; Ghasem Mohammadi-Nejad

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 34-43

  In order to identify yield and yield component QTLs under control and salt-stress conditions, a population of 254 recombinant inbred lines (RILs), derived from a cross between two bread wheat cultivars, (Roshan / Sabalan), was assessed. Parents and their 254 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) were evaluated ...  Read More

Molecular cloning and in-silico analysis of Ramy3D promoter and 5′ untranslated region from an Iranian rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivar “NEMAT”

Meysam Bastami; Hosseini Ramin

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 44-52

  The regulatory sequence of rice alpha amylase 3D gene (Ramy3D) is amongst the most successful expression systems used for recombinant protein expression in plants. In the current study a 995 bp fragment consisting of Ramy3D promoter and its 5′ untranslated region was amplified from the genomic ...  Read More

Influence of Agrobacterium rhizogenes strains on hairy roots induction in Trigonella foenum-graecum L. and secondary metabolites production

Neda Tariverdizadeh; Mehdi Mohebodini; Esmaeil Chamani; Asghar Ebadi

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 53-60

  Fenugreek(Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) is a rich source of important medicinal metabolites. This plant belongs to the Fabaceae family. Induced hairy roots by Agrobacterium rhizogenes are a suitable tissue for the production of secondary metabolites, due to the stability and high production of roots ...  Read More

Assessment of the efficiency of hairy roots induction using soybean, sugar beet and tobacco explants

Nahid Sadeghi Ghahderijani; Ali Niazi; Esmaeil Ebrahimie; Ali Moghadam; Mohammad Sadegh Taghizadeh

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 61-72

  Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer method is one of the used methods for genetic transformation in the plant regeneration program. Transformation efficiency can be optimized depending on the strain of bacteria, the genotype of plant and conditions of growth. In this study, the gfp gene was transferred ...  Read More
