The influence of hybrid vigor on callus induction, callus weight, regeneration capacity of callus, culture efficiency and number of regenerated plants from mature embryo cultures of winter barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) hybrid was studied. A total of 15 F-1 hybrids and their parents were used for mature embryo culture. The statistical analysis of the results revealed that positive heterosis was noticed for all these characters except for callus weight. Plants regenerated in vitro were successfully established in soil.


Induction of embryogenic tissue and maturation of somatic embryos in Pinus brutia TEN
Yildirim, Tolga; Kaya, Zeki; Isik, Kani (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-10-01)
Embryogenic tissues (ET) of Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia TEN) were initiated from immature precotyledonary zygotic embryos sampled from 15 different plus trees. Seven collections were made weekly from June 10 to July 22, 2003. DCR basal medium supplemented with 13.6 mu M 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 2.2 mu M benzylaminopurine (BAP) was used for initiation and maintenance of ET. Overall initiation frequency of ET in the study was 11.6%, initiation rates ranging between 4.7% and 24.1% per tree...
Virus induced gene silencing in Brachypodium distachyon, a model organism for cereals
Demircan, Turan; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-01-01)
Brachypodium distachyon is emerging as a model organism for crops as a better alternative to Oryzae sativa. It shares common characteristics of a model plant with its small genome, small physical plant size, a short lifecycle, and less demanding growth requirements similar to Arabidopsis thaliana. In this study, we are reporting for the first time, an implementation of virus induced gene silencing (VIGS), a powerful method allowing rapid and effective means of loss of gene function through RNA interference....
Detection of physically interacting proteins with the CC and NB-ARC domains of a putative yellow rust resistance protein, Yr10, in wheat
Yildirim-Ersoy, Figen; Ridout, Christopher J.; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-08-01)
Gene-for-gene (GFG) resistance is a potent defense mechanism in plants, that is mediated by resistance (R) proteins. In GFG resistance, pathogen effector or avirulence (Avr) proteins are recognised by R-proteins which initiate a series of signal transduction events that lead to hypersensitive cell death. In cereals, many R-proteins are comprised of an N-terminal coiled-coiled (CC) domain, a Nucleotide Binding (NB) domain and a Leucine Rich Repeats (LRR) region associated with effector recognition. NB-LRR im...

Combination of elemental and protein studies along with molecular data using microsatellite markers may lead CO the better and realistic determination of relatedness between the varieties and their populations. In this study, the extent of diversity among five Turkish durum wheat cultivars and their populations has been assessed using seven microsatellite markers and the elemental analysis together with the differences in their protein content. In molecular analysis, total 23 alleles have been obtained amon...
The effect of diabetes on rat skeletal muscle tissues at molecular level
Bozkurt, Özlem; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2006)
In the present study Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was used to examine the effects of streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus on the structural components of slow- and fast-twitch rat skeletal muscles, at molecular level. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, which is characterized by hyperglycemia caused by a defective or deficient insulin secretory response. The effect of diabetes is seen on a variety of tissues leading to important secondary compl...
