  • nucleus
  • The zygote then increases in cell number by mitosis, a type of cell division during which chromosomes in a nucleus are replicated and then separated to form two genetically identical daughter nuclei. (blogspot.com)
  • One level, the folding and positioning of chromosomes inside the nucleus, has only recently been recognised as playing an important role in gene expression. (findaphd.com)
  • metaphase
  • For analysis of metaphase chromosomes, any tissue containing dividing cells can be used: Root tips from young seedlings, from newly grown roots at the edge of plant pots or hydroponic culture are all suitable. (scienceexchange.com)
  • It is very important not to expose seedlings, roots and plants during germination and metaphase-arrest to chemicals and fumes, particularly fixatives (e.g. in a cold room also used for chemical storage) and to use clean labware with tight lids (disposable plastic is ideal), clean forceps, and distilled water. (scienceexchange.com)
  • Treating material for too long in arresting agents, particularly colchicine, results in over-condensation of the metaphase chromosomes which might be desirable for counting chromosomes, but not for in situ hybridization where spatial resolution along chromosomes is wanted. (scienceexchange.com)
  • gene
  • Our overarching long-term goal is to uncover novel principles in plant gene regulation and to identify novel targets for plant breeding against pests and for improved plant health. (findaphd.com)
  • Plant-fungus horizontal gene transfer is the movement of genetic material between individuals in the plant and fungus kingdoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most plant-fungus horizontal gene transfer events are ancient and rare, but they may have provided important gene functions leading to wider substrate use and habitat spread for plants and fungi. (wikipedia.org)
  • Plant-fungus interactions could play a part in a multi-horizontal gene transfer pathway among many other organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fungus-plant-mediated horizontal gene transfer can occur via phagotrophic mechanisms (mediated by phagotrophic eukaryotes) and nonphagotropic mechanisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Horizontal gene transfer could bypass eukaryotic barrier features like linear chromatin-based chromosomes, intron-exon gene structures, and the nuclear envelope. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ecological association can facilitate horizontal gene transfer in plants and fungi and is an unstudied factor in shared evolutionary histories. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most horizontal gene transfers from fungi into plants predate the rise of land plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • A greater genomic inventory of gene family and taxon sampling has been identified as a desirable prerequisite for identifying further plant-fungus events. (wikipedia.org)
  • Plant-fungus horizontal gene transfer could take place during plant infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • sequence
  • Because fragmentation produces overlapping fragments, sequences can be concatenated by overlapping sequence information, thereby reconstructing contiguous sequences (contigs), which was first exemplified by the complete structure of a plant DNA virus. (wikipedia.org)
  • transgene
  • In the second case, the break occurred in the vicinity of theDsRed transgene locus, such that the tip of the bottom armof chromosome 5 was lost (plant 6-7-10) (Figure 2A and Figure 3). (nih.gov)
  • Sequences
  • Using the results of pyrosequencing and assembling, we obtained six 5S rDNA- containing contigs with a total length of 140,417 bp, and two sets (pools) of individual 5S rDNA sequences belonging to separate, but closely located genomic regions on the 5BS chromosome. (biomedcentral.com)

  • In 1967, phytoplasmas were discovered in ultrathin sections of plant phloem tissue and were termed mycoplasma-like organisms (MLOs) due to their physiological resemblance The organisms were renamed phytoplasmas in 1994, at the 10th Congress of the International Organization for Mycoplasmology.
