Processing and subcellular localization of the leader papain-like proteinase of Beet yellows closterovirus. (1/10)

ORF 1a of Beet yellows closterovirus (BYV) encodes the domains of the papain-like proteinase (PCP), methyltransferase (MT) and RNA helicase. BYV cDNA inserts encoding the PCP-MT region were cloned in pGEX vectors next to the glutathione S-transferase gene (GST). In a 'double tag' construct, the GST-PCP-MT cDNA was flanked by the 3'-terminal six histidine triplets. Following expression in E. coli, the fusion proteins were specifically self-cleaved into the GST-PCP and MT fragments. MT-His(6) was purified on Ni-NTA agarose and its N-terminal sequence determined by Edman degradation as GVEEEA, thus providing direct evidence for the Gly(588)/Gly(589) bond cleavage. The GST-PCP fragment purified on glutathione S-agarose was used as an immunogen to produce anti-PCP monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). On Western blots of proteins from virus-infected Tetragonia expansa, the mAbs recognized the 66 kDa protein. Immunogold labelling of BYV-infected tissue clearly indicated association of the PCP with the BYV-induced membranous vesicle aggregates, structures related to closterovirus replication.  (+info)

Invasion dynamics of two alien Carpobrotus (Aizoaceae) taxa on a Mediterranean island: I. Genetic diversity and introgression. (2/10)

This study, based on morphological and isozyme analysis, clearly discriminates two invasive Carpobrotus taxa, C. edulis and C. acinaciformis, in the Hyeres archipelago off the southeastern coast of France. However, three different allelic combinations demonstrate the presence of intermediate individuals resulting from an introgression of part of the C. edulis genome into that of C. acinaciformis. Both taxa have higher than average genetic (C. edulis: P(0.95)=62.5%, A=2.25+/-0.70, H(o)=0.329+/-0.324; C. acinaciformis: P(0.95)=75%, A=2.38+/-0.42, H(o)=0.645+/-0.109) and clonal diversities (C. edulis: IP=0.37; C. acinaciformis: IP=0.48). Furthermore, C. acinaciformis has an excess of heterozygotes (F=-0.585+/-0.217), probably due to introgression. The relationship between the probability of clonal identity for two individuals and distance indicates that C. acinaciformis relies more on clonal reproduction than on sexual recruitment (seed recruitment/vegetative propagation=u/v=0.027), in contrast to C. edulis, whose probability of clonal identity did not vary with distance. The overwhelming clonal growth and high genetic diversities of C. acinaciformis and the previously recorded invasion potential for C. edulis raises concern for intensified invasion via hybridisation.  (+info)

Invasion dynamics of two alien Carpobrotus (Aizoaceae) taxa on a Mediterranean island: II. Reproductive strategies. (3/10)

This study compares sexually and asexually produced fruit set, seed production, biomass, germination, and seedling size in Carpobrotus acinaciformis and C. edulis following controlled pollination experiments in order to evaluate the potential role of reproductive traits with respect to the invasive potential of these taxa. C. edulis is slightly agamospermic, completely self-fertile, slightly preferentially self-compatible, experiences no inbreeding depression, and has low hybrid vigour. In contrast, C. acinaciformis does not have reliable agamospermy, is only slightly self-fertile and self-compatible, experiences a slight inbreeding depression, and has a strong hybrid vigour. Both taxa have relatively low, although significantly different germination frequencies, and insignificantly different seedling sizes. Owing to the high performance in hybridisation as compared to all other controlled pollinations in C. acinaciformis, as well as a large amount of previously demonstrated introgression, we refer to the population studied on the island of Bagaud (France) as C. affine acinaciformis. We conclude that both C. edulis and C. affine acinaciformis should be considered as harmful invasive plants in the Mediterranean Basin, the former because of the flexibility of its mating system and high seed production, and the latter because of its strong clonality, high hybrid vigour, and potential for continued introgression from C. edulis genes. These differences require different control strategies, while the avoidance of sympatry is a distinct priority.  (+info)

Traditionally, Sceletium tortuosum has been used as a medicine and for social and spiritual purposes. The genus is distributed in the south-western parts of South Africa. This project phytochemically analysed and characterised Sceletium plant extracts and determined if any extract showed anti-malarial properties. Extracts were prepared in ethanol and methanol and various compounds were purified using column chromatography with hexane and ethyl acetate as mobile phase. The structure of isolated compounds, including mesembrine, pinitol, sucrose, mesembrenone and obtusalin, was confirmed using NMR. The Plasmodium Lactate dehydrogenase assay was used to screen all extracts and mesembrine to show that four extracts showed antimalarial activity with activity values ranging between 1.47 μg/ml and 7.32 μg/ml, well below the 10 μg/ml cut off value. The study recommends extracting compounds from fresh plant material and further research as to anti-malarial activity of compounds isolated from Sceletium ...
Attempts have been made to reveal the survival strategies of the two forms ofTrianthema portulacastrum. These morphs, vizrubra andflava, do not show any remarkable difference in their morphology, phenology and water relations. Metabolically,rubra form is more hardy thanflava form, because of lesser water loss, higher water retention capacity, high protein content and higher levels of proline accumulation at different stages of plant growth. Seed germination studies revealed the presence of hard seed coatedness in both morphs, being more in theflava form.

In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. Some definitions also include roots, so that geophytes that survive unfavorable periods by dying back to underground storage organs may be regarded as succulents. In horticultural use, the term "succulent" is often used in a way which excludes plants that botanists would regard as succulents, such as cacti. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance. Many plant families have multiple succulents found within them (over 25 plant families). In some families, such as Aizoaceae, Cactaceae, and Crassulaceae, most species are succulents. The habitats of these water preserving plants are often in ...

Introduction. Fire is instrumental in maintaining the species-rich and endemic-rich fynbos shrublands (Myers et al. 2000) of the Cape Floral Kingdom (CFK) of South Africa (Kruger & Bigalke 1984). Fire is the dominant natural disturbance in fynbos and managing fynbos equates to managing fire. The fire ecology of fynbos has been well researched in the western, winter-rainfall part of the CFK (Kruger & Bigalke 1984; Van Wilgen & Viviers 1985) and in the drier inland mountains (Bond, Vlok & Viviers 1984; Midgley 1989; Seydack, Bekker & Marshall 2007) but was, until recently, poorly understood in the eastern coastal part of the CFK. The climate of the latter is milder with reduced seasonal extremes in temperature, whilst rainfall occurs year-round. As shown by Heelemann et al. (2008) in the inland fynbos of the eastern CFK, overstorey proteoids (non-sprouting, slow-maturing, serotinous Proteaceae) show weak seasonal effects on post-fire recruitment, a consequence of a non-seasonal rainfall and fire ...

Amsterdam, NL - Mutations in the human genome may be responsible for many diseases. In the case of Parkinsons disease (PD), five locations have been the subject of recent attention. Variants of one of these locations, ACMSD (aminocarboxymuconate semialdehyde decarboxylase), may be implicated in PD, but until now, no mutations in ACMSD have been found in any PD patients. In a study in the Journal of Parkinsons Disease, researchers found a unique mutation in a 74-year-old man with PD. This mutation is not found in the neurologically normal population, and may be the first indication that rare variants in ACMSD alone might increase the risk of PD.. The novel ACMSD mutation was identified during a genetic screening study of 62 PD patients on the Mediterranean island of Menorca, which were matched with 192 ethnicity-matched neurologically normal individuals with no family history of PD. The study was initiated by investigators Eduardo Tolosa and Dolores Vilas, who are enormously grateful to Dr. ...

The termites Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill), Coptotermes acinaciformis (Froggatt), and Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt were examined for their ability to degrade lignin. Several 14C-(lignin)-lignocelluloses labelled in the 3 side chain position were prepared by infusing plant stems for seven days with the lignin precursor, 14C-cinnamic acid. Based on acid and alkali solubilites, the lignin precursor was more deeply incorporated into the lignin polymer than usually reported for 14C-(lignin)-lignocellulose preparations. N. exitiosus was able to degrade a 14C-(U-ring)-synthetic lignin (5% breakdown) and the lignin component of certain hardwood 14C-(lignin)-lignocelluloses (about 4-6.5% breakdown), but not the lignin component of softwood 14C-(lignin)-lignocellulose. Both C. acinaciformis and M. darwiniensis were less able to degrade any of the 14C-lignins than N. exitiosus. The difference may be due to their possessing different types of gut symbionts. Most of the degradation by N. exitiosus took place
Aims Although biological invasions occur throughout the world, and some invaders are widespread in many habitats, few studies on the ecological impact of invaders have examined multiple sites. We tested how the impact of three widespread plant invaders changed depending on the identity of the species and the invaded island. We also tested whether relative species loss was lower in species-rich communities than in species-poor ones. Location We conducted floristic surveys and soil analyses in eight Mediterranean Basin islands: Crete and Lesbos (Greece), Sardinia (Italy), Corsica, Bagaud and Porquerolles (France), and Mallorca and Menorca (Spain). Methods We compared native species richness and diversity, proportion of life forms, soil percentage nitrogen, percentage organic carbon, C/N, and soil pH in nearby paired plots of 2 × 2 m: one control and one invaded by either the deciduous tree Ailanthus altissima, the succulent subshrubs Carpobrotus spp. or the annual geophyte Oxalis pes-caprae, ...

A range of methods are available to control invasive alien plants, including mechanical, chemical and biological control. While the first two methods can be used to contain infestations, neither provides a permanent or sustainable solution to the problem.54,55 Biological control options provide more sustainable solutions, but are only available for some of the invasive alien plant species in the fynbos.56 Hakeas and several wattles have a suite of seed-feeding and gall-forming insects which can reduce seed loads. A promising project, seeking seed-destroying insects for pines,57 was terminated because of fears that the proposed insect would assist the infection of commercially-important pine trees by pitch canker.58 Research into the impacts and control of invasive alien plants in fynbos Concerns about the impacts of invasive alien plants in South Africa are not new. Early botanists, including Peter MacOwan (in 1888) and Rudolf Marloth (in 1908), raised concerns that alien plants would replace ...

The first novel, the substantially autobiographical Celestial Seraglio, tumbles through the world of a French convent for both Catholic and English Protestant girls. Relationships develop, only to be smashed as adolescent enthusiasms turn from the lives of the saints to the confessional, to cynicism, and again to piety. Spleen recounts the ponderings of Ruth, a woman who has exiled herself to an Italian Mediterranean island following the birth of her deformed son. Her vision of (specifically European) social corruption and artistic vigor is heightened on the island, and when her husband dies, she returns alone to England strangely rejuvenated, ironically triumphant. In Fugue we once again find an Englishwoman abroad, this time in Alsace: Lavinia Reade is pregnant, unmarried, and losing her man. Love, friendship and independence are juggled before the macabre conclusion falls like a shroud. In her fiction, Moores formal ambitions have a 1920s Modernist character; one is reminded of Virginia ...

Energy performance of island tourism has been analyzed in the literature. However, tourist services tend to concentrate in tourist hubs, especially where mass tourism predominates (e.g., Mediterranean), and the energy metabolism of these systems has not yet been assessed. The present paper models and estimates the energy metabolism of tourist hubs in the Menorca Island (Spain) by integrating social, geographical and environmental methods. Mobility (both external and internal) and consumption of lodging services were characterized through surveys to users (tourists) and business managers. An environmental assessment evaluated CO₂ emissions, and energy self-sufficiency potential was estimated via GIS data. The results indicate that, on average, a tourist consumes 4756 MJ with associated emissions of 277 kg of CO₂ per stay (20 days on average). Of all the energy flows, external mobility contributes the most to total emissions (77%). For every day spent in a tourist hub, a tourist consumes between 29 MJ

The evolutionary transition from water to land exerts a continuing fascination, heightened by recent discoveries of transitional fossils in Canada and the reinterpretation as tetrapods (or near-tetrapods) of fossils once classified as fishes. But signs of land life are detectable even further back. A spectacularly preserved 380-million-year old fossil of the fish Gogonasus from the Devonian of Australia is fish-like in many respects, yet features of its ear and limbs are unexpectedly advanced. The transition from fishes to tetrapods was one of the most dramatic events in the evolution of vertebrates, but many pivotal fossils are incomplete, resulting in gaps in the data that are used for phylogenetic reconstruction. Here we present new observations from the most complete, acid-prepared Devonian tetrapodomorph fish yet discovered, Gogonasus1,2, which was previously placed just crownward of Kenichthys and rhizodontids3,4, the most primitive taxa on the tetrapod lineage. Unexpectedly, Gogonasus shows a

The definition of a succulent is: a plant adapted to arid conditions and characterized by fleshy water-storing tissues that act as water reservoirs. Succulents are plants with thick, fleshy leaves, as well as cacti.. Succulents are grown for their unique, interesting shapes, stunning flowers and resilience.. Give these plants a sunny window with direct sunlight, the appropriate amount of moisture, some fertilizer and they will grow.. The most important thing to remember when caring for cacti or succulents is that many varieties have a long dormancy period from October to March. During dormancy, it is sufficient to water every six to eight weeks. Watering more often will leave the soil wet, which can cause the plant to rot.. Come March, inside succulents begin to break their long dormancy and again require regular water and fertilizer. At this time of year, the plants are still growing slowly so one application of water and fertilizer once a month is usually sufficient.. Once new growth begins to ...

In Japan, the main island of Honshu also has several sites that contain obsidian obtained from Kozu Island (Izu Islands) by 32,000 years ago ( Habu, 2010). Overall, the evidence from Sunda and Sahul demonstrates. significant maritime voyaging, ocean navigation, and island colonization by the Late Pleistocene. Somewhat later in time, colonization of Californias Channel Islands at least 11,000 B.C. (all B.C./A.D./B.P. dates are calibrated calendar ages unless otherwise BAY 73-4506 order noted) required boats and was achieved by some of the earliest people to live in the Americas (Erlandson et al., 2011a and Erlandson et al., 2011b). Early coastal sites in California, elsewhere on the Pacific Rim, and in Chile have helped support the coastal migration theory for the initial peopling of the Americas (Erlandson et al., 2007).

Conophytum calculus - WikipediaConophytum calculus - Wikipedia

Rounded ball-shaped succulent plant, that divides to form dense clumps. The resemblance to pebbles and the firmness of its flesh is what got it its name ("calculus" is Latin for "pebble"). It produces yellow or orange flowers in autumn, that open at night, and have the aroma of cloves. The ball shape is formed from the plants leaf-pair having fused entirely, leaving only a tiny slit at the top, where the flower and the succeeding leaf pair pushes through. The new leaf-pair forms inside the ball. When it is ready, the ball of the old leaf-pair shrivels and dries out, before it is split open by the new leaf-pair ball. The epidermis (and therefore the dried leaf sheath too) is thick and strong. The plants are extremely long-lived, and have been kept in captivity for over 50 years. They offset slowly, forming clumps. ...
