Inheritance of resistance to septoria tritici blotch (STB) in some Iranian genotypes of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

  Septoria tritici blotch (STB), caused by Mycosphaerella graminicola (anamorph S. tritici) is currently the most serious foliar disease of wheat worldwide. Understanding of mechanisms for resistance inheritance in genotypes would potentially lead to more efficient deployment of host plant resistance. As part of our effort to improve STB resistance, inheritance of seedling STB resistance was...

MTHFR polymorphisms in Puerto Rican children with isolated congenital heart disease and their mothers

  Congenital heart defects (CHD) are among the most common birth defects. There is evidence suggesting that polymorphisms in folate metabolism could alter susceptibility to CHD. The MTHFR 677TT genotype has been associated with the development of structural congenital heart malformations. The objective of this study was to identify common polymorphisms in the MTHFR gene in children with isolated CHD and their...
