Seedling and adult plant (field) resistance to yellow rust in the durum wheat (Triticum turgidum ssp. durum) cross Kunduru-1149 x Cham-1 was characterized using a functionally-targeted DNA marker system, NBS-profiling. Chi-squared analysis indicated a four gene model conferring seedling yellow rust resistance against Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici isolate WYR85/22 (virulent on Yr2, Yr6, Yr7 and Yr9). Interval mapping located two QTL for yellow rust resistance on the long arm of chromosome 1B, while Kruskal-Wallis single marker regression identified a number of additional marker loci associated with seedling and/or adult plant, field resistance to yellow rust. These results suggested that much of the yellow rust resistance seen in the field may be due to seedling expressed resistance (R) genes. Characterization of the DNA sequence of three NBS marker loci indicated that all showed significant homology to functionally-characterized R-genes and resistance gene analogues (RGAs), with the greatest homology being NBS-LRR-type R-genes and RGAs from cereal species.

A Numerical taxonomic study on the genus salvia l. (lamiaceae) in Turkey
Tiambeng, Deniz; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2015)
Widely used a medicinal plant, Salvia L. is the largest genus in the family Lamiaceae, with over 1700 species found in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Within this genus, almost 100 species are recognized in Turkey. To date, however, no comprehensive infrageneric treatment of Salvia in Turkey exists. The objective of this study was to propose a more natural infrageneric classification of the genus Salvia in Turkey by using the numerical taxonomic approach developed by Sneath and Sokal in 1973. In this...
The Effects of Biostimulants on Nutrient Uptake of 'Syrah' Vine Saplings Grafted on SO4 Rootstock
This study was conducted to determine the effects of two different biostimulants (Agrozym and Almina) with their four different concentrations (0, 5, 10, 20 g per pot), for plant characteristics of 'Syrah' vine saplings and soil structure in 2006. The experiment was done with 5 repetitions and each replica consisted of 3 plants. Plant and soil samples were collected and analyzed two months after budding. According to results obtained, while macro plant nutrient of levels (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S) did not change,...

The evolutionary divergence of Pinus nigra subsp pallasiana and its varieties based on noncoding trn regions of chloroplast genome
Gulsoy, Aysun Demet; Gulsoy, Ali Murat; Cengel, Burcu; Kaya, Zeki (2014-01-01)
The Anatolian black pine [Pinus nigra Arnold subsp. pallasiana (Lamb.) Holmboe var. pallasiana] is one of the subspecies of European black pine, growing naturally as a widespread mid-elevation species in the southern, western, and northern Anatolian Mountains of Turkey. Three well-recognized varieties [var. pallasiana, var. fastigiata Businsky with pyramidal form, and var. seneriana (Saatcioglu) Yalt. with globular-shaped crown with multiple stems] occur naturally, but the studies on them are very limited. ...
Characterization of a candidate effector of wheat yellow rust targeting chloroplast with a novel transit peptide
Andaç, Ayşe; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Gür Dedeoğlu, Bala; Department of Biotechnology (2019)
Fungal pathogen, Puccinia striiformis f. sp. trtici, is the causative agent of stripe disease of wheat which causes disruption on wheat yield in many parts of the world. Fungal pathogens secrete effector molecules into host plant cells to suppress host immunity via virulence to colonize plants. Ongoing efforts are being made to identify and characterize effector proteins in many fungal plant pathogens. Nevertheless, the precise biological and biochemical functions of many effectors, such as their traffickin...
