In the present work, the phenolic compounds content and antioxidant activity in the skin, pulp, seed, cane and leaf of one international (Muscat) and five native (Hosseini, Ghara Shira, Agh Shani, Ghara Shani and Ghara Ghandome) grape cultivated in West Azerbaijan, Iran were investigated. Ghara Shani grape skin was found to contain the highest content of total phenolic and anthocyanin and cane of Ghara Shani contains the highest amount of flavonoid. A remarkable DPPH radical scavenging activity up to 95% and consequently, the lowest IC50 was found for skin of Ghara Shani. According to RP-HPLC experiments, the highest concentration of phenolic compounds was identified as catechin (945 mu g/g), epicatechin (482 mu g/g), gallic acid (319 mu g/g) and resveratrol (29.8 mu g/g) in skin of Ghara Shani, quercetin in cane of Ghara Shani (956 mu g/g), rutin in skin of Ghara Shira (298 mu g/g) and caffeic acid in cane of Ghara Shira (17.4 mu g/g).

Identification of differentially expressed transcripts from leaves of the boron tolerant plant Gypsophila perfoliata L.
Unver, Turgay; Bozkurt, Osman; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-08-01)
Very recently some of the species of Gypsophila genus collected from the boron rich soils in Turkey were shown to be remarkably tolerant to high levels of boron. A limited amount of boron is necessary for the normal development of plants; however, a high level of boron in soil is generally toxic. Nevertheless, the adaptability of plant species allows them to withstand the presence of extreme amounts of metal ion by various strategies. This study is conducted on highly boron tolerant Gypsophila perfoliata L....
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...
Determination of lead, cadmium and copper in roadside soil and plants in Elazig, Turkey
Bakirdere, Sezgin; Yaman, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-01-01)
The concentrations of lead, cadmium and copper in roadside soil and plants in Elazig, Turkey were investigated. Soil samples were collected at distances of 0, 25 and 50 m from the roadside. The concentrations of lead, cadmium and copper were measured by Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (FAAS). A slotted tube atom trap ( STAT) was used to increase the sensitivity of lead and cadmium in FAAS. Lead concentrations in soil samples varied from 1.3 to 45 mg kg(-1) while mean lead levels in plants ranged f...
Assessment of genetic variation of bread wheat varieties using microsatellite markers
Akkaya, Mahinur; Buyukunal-Bal, EB (2004-01-01)
The DNA fingerprinting profiles of 11 bread wheat cultivars, grown in Turkey, was obtained by using 19 highly polymorphic wheat microsatellites. Up to six randomly selected individuals from each of these cultivars were subjected to analysis. Estimated polymorphism information content (PIC) values among 65 individual genotypes for 19 loci were between 0.36 and 0.87 with an average value of 0.68. The numbers of observed alleles were between 2 and 9, with an average value of 5.42. These relationships were asse...

A total of 31 strains of facultatively anaerobic, non-motile, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria were isolated from different Turkish dry sausage (soudjouk) samples. They were determined as belonging to the genus Lactobacillus and subjected to a taxonomic study. The strains were divided into seven groups based on sugar fermentation pattern and other physiological and morphological characteristics. A variety of biochemical and genetic characteristics were also examined for species differentation of these iso...
