This current study presents investigations on the morphological and anatomical characteristics of Bellevalia paradoxa Boiss., a very attractive geophyte growing in the eastern and northeastern Turkey. For morphological studies, a detailed description as well as a distribution map of B. paradoxa are given. The morphological features of the species are also compared to those reported in Flora of Turkey. For anatomical studies, tranverse sections of the roots, scapes and leaves, and surface sections of the leaves are studied for the first time. The results show that the plant has roots composed of 7 protoxylem arms and 3-4 large metaxylem, amphistomatic and equifacial leaves, 2-3-layered palisade parenchyma, three-layered leaf margins and anomocytic stomata. Raphide crystals in the leaves of B. paradoxa and their distribution were determined using a light microscope.

Morphological, anatomical and palynological characteristics of Salvia glutinosa L. and S. staminea Montbret & Aucher ex Bentham and their taxonomic importance are presented. Their expanded description and phenology are also given. The features of stems, leaves, calyces, corolla and nutlets have been found to be significant to distinguish the species. Mesophyll structure, distribution of stomata on upper epidermis, size of stomata on lower epidermis, shape of vascular structure in midrib, and number of vascu...
DNA fingerprinting and genetic characterization of Anatolian Triticum spp. using AFLP markers
Yildirim, Figen; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-08-01)
In this study, genetic analysis of Triticum spp. was carried out using AFLP markers. Six AFLP selective combinations were scored as presence and absence of bands for all the individual samples obtained from a single seed of each accession (70 accessions); T. baeoticum (21), T. monococcum (5), T. urartu (16), T. araraticum (7), T. dicoccoides (16) and T. dicoccon (5), resulting in 506 polymorphic AFLP bands. The phylogenetic tree showed two major clusters; one was composed of T. monococcum (AA) and T. baeoti...
Computational study of scattering from healthy and diseased red blood cells
Ergül, Özgür Salih; Gurel, Levent (SPIE-Intl Soc Optical Eng, 2010-07-01)
We present a comparative study of scattering from healthy red blood cells (RBCs) and diseased RBCs with deformed shapes. Scattering problems involving three-dimensional RBCs are formulated accurately with the electric and magnetic current combined- field integral equation and solved efficiently by the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. We compare scattering cross section values obtained for different RBC shapes and different orientations. In this way, we determine strict guidelines to distinguish deformed...
Stepwise Reversal of Immune Dysregulation Due to STAT1 Gain-of-Function Mutation Following Ruxolitinib Bridge Therapy and Transplantation

Purpose Patients with heterozygous gain-of-function (GOF) mutations in STAT1 frequently exhibit chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC), immunodeficiency and autoimmune manifestations. Several treatment options including targeted therapies and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are available for STAT1 GOF patients but modalities and outcomes are not well established. Herein, we aimed to unravel the effect of ruxolitinib as a bridge therapy in a patient with sporadic STAT1 T385M mutation to manag...
Cloning, sequencing and expression of L-lactate dehydrogenase gene from clostridium thermocellum and isolation, characterization and transformation of various cellulolytic, thermophilic, ethanol-producing bacteria
Özkan, Melek; Özcengiz, Gülay; Ögel, Zümrüt B.; Department of Biotechnology (2002)
In this study, the structural gene for L-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH; EC. 1.1. 1.27) was cloned and characterized for the first time from Clostridium thermocellum 27405 in Escherichia coli. A 357 bp PCR product of predicted size was obtained with degenerate primers designed for conserved regions of Idh genes of different organisms. This amplicon was used as a probe to screen a Lambda Zap II phage library of C. thermocellum genomic DNA. One positive clone contained an insert of 2.5 kb which included an open r...
