COMPARISON OF FIELD GROWTH AMONG LOBLOLLY-PINE SEEDLINGS AND 3 PLANT TYPES PRODUCED INVITRO

FRAMPTON, LJ
ISIK, K
To study differences in field performance between tissue culture plantlets and seedlings of loblolly pine, two field plantings containing four plant types (seedlings, excised embryos, rooted hypocotyls, and tissue culture plantlets) were established. After 3.5 growing seasons, the plantlets were 80% the height of the seedlings and appeared more mature than seedlings for other characteristics. Despite their smaller initial planting size, by 1.5 years, the two additional plant types performed as well as the seedlings in every respect. Comparisons suggest that the cause of differences between plantlets and seedlings lies with the adverse affect of producing shoots by tissue culture techniques rather than with the tissue culture environment or rooting procedures.

Comparison of benzaldehyde lyase production capacity in recombinant Escherichia coli and recombinant Bacillus species
Kaya, Hande; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
In this study, the benzaldehyde lyase (BAL, EC 4.1.2.38) production in E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLySs as intracellular and in Bacillus species as extracellular were investigated, and comparison of the production capacity of the enzyme in the developed recombinant microorganisms were compared. For this purpose, firstly, PCR amplified bal gene was cloned into pRSETA vector which is under the control of strong T7 promoter and expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS strain. With developed recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3)...
Development of PCR methods for detection and quantification of genetically modified maize
Jabbari Farhoud, Houman; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
This study describes development of methods for screening, identification and quantification of genetic modifications in maize samples. Totally 88 maize samples were collected randomly throughout Turkey in three years from 2006 to 2008 and were analyzed. Two maize samples that were detected as GM positive in previous studies were selected as positive controls. Following the DNA extraction by manual CTAB method, conventional PCR methods were employed for screening of genetic modifications in samples by detec...
Genetic control of rooting ability of lodgepole pine cuttings
Fries, A; Kaya, Zeki (1997-11-01)
This study evaluates the genetic control of rooting ability ex vitro for cuttings of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Engelm.). More than 200 clones from 21 full-sib families were studied during 4 yr in the greenhouse. Clonal averages in rooting frequency, root size score, shoot extension during rooting, and vitality score were calculated, together with variance components and phenotypic and genetic correlations among variables. Years, families within latitude of origin, clones within families ...
Analysis of polyphenol oxidase production by southern pine beetle associated fungi
Valiev, Abduvali; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Food Engineering (2007)
In this study, two symbiotic fungi of Southern Pine Beetle (SPB), Entomocorticium peryii and Entomocorticium sp.A were evaluated in terms of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) production. The effect of different inhibitors, inducers and assay parameters such as temperature and pH on enzyme activity were investigated and maximum PPO activity was observed at 30°C, pH 8.0 and when tannic acid was used as an inducer. Copper-chelator salicyl hydroxamic acid (SHAM) and pcoumaric acid, both indicated as inhibitors of tyrosi...
Determination of esterase enzyme polymorphism in house fly (Musca domestica L.) populations in Turkey
TAŞKIN, VATAN; Taskin, Belgin Gocmen; KÜÇÜKAKYÜZ, KÖKSAL; Kence, Meral (2011-01-01)
The objective of this study was to determine esterase enzyme polymorphism in 16 natural Musca domestica L. populations from the Aegean and Mediterranean regions of Turkey by using the native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) technique. The high level of genetic variation among populations and species make esterase enzymes an important tool for analyzing genetic differentiation and evolutionary relationships in insects. In the present study, 22 a-esterase bands were detected by using a-naphthylacetat...
