Assessment of genetic diversity in Berberis lycium Royle complex using RAPD markers

Genomic diversity among fifty accessions of Berberis lycium Royle complex was studied, using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. Out of 80 RAPD primers, 28 were polymorphic and showed reproducible results. Total of 11,683 amplicon generated 50 accessions of B. lycium complex with 28 primers. 332 amplification products scored, 284 (85%) were polymorphic and 48 monomorphic. Maximum numbers...

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) 2, 4, 6 and 7 affect ovarian follicular development through regulation of follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) and luteinizing hormone receptor (LHR) expression in goat granulosa cells

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), belonging to the transforming growth factor-beta family, are crucial factors in follicular growth and development in the mammalian ovary. In this study, we examined the effects of BMP2, 4, 6 and 7 on goat granulosa cells by in vitro culture. The results showed that BMP2, 4 and 7 increased follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) level in goat granulosa cells whereas they...
