Phylogenetic relationship among Mango (Mangifera indica L.) Landraces of Saurashtra based on DNA fingerprinting
Twenty mango cultivars (Mangifera indica Linn) collected from Gir region of Saurashtra were examined by ISSR markers. Of the 50 primers screened, 21 primers gave reproducible, polymorphic DNA amplification patterns, and were selected to construct a DNA fingerprinting map to distinguish the genotypes of mango. According to the banding patterns obtained with 21 selected primers, all cultivars tested in this study...
Effect of alcoholics extract on rat livers and antibacterial screening of Citrullus colocynthis
Crude ethanolic extracts of fruits, leaves, stems and roots of Citrulus colocynthis Schrad were examined for their antibacterial potentialities against Gram positive and Gram negative bacilli. Ethanolic extracts of fruits, leaves, stems and roots were found to be active against Gram positive bacilli, viz., Bacilus pumilus and Staphylococcus aureus, while fruit and root extracts in double...
Anticandidal screening and antibacterial of Citrullus colocynthis in South East of Iran
Resistance to current antibacterial drugs and the rise of opportunistic fungal infections are growing global concerns. Traditional medicine is a potential source of new antibacterials and antifungals. Citrullus colocynthis Schrad (Cucurbitaceae) endemic in Southern Iran is used in folk medicine against dermatological, gynaecological and pulmonary infections. To assess in vitro antibacterial and...
Comparative genotyping of some Moldavian grapevine cultivars
Microsatellite loci (SSRs) represent favourite molecular markers for assessing genetic identities and phylogenetic relationships between different grapevine varieties and gene pools. In the present study, a genetic characterization of 54 grapevine cultivars (genitors and their descendants from the collection of National Institute for Viticulture and Oenology, Department of Grapevine Genetic...
