In comparison with the main advancements achieved in the last decades in the study of fructose production process by inulin enzymatic hydrolysis and in comparison with the majority of the knowledge in the area of application of Luffa cylindrica, the application of Luffa cylindrica as a carrier...
- Analysis of Genetic Differences between Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb. and Luffa cylindrica (L.) Roem. by ISSR Markers. Bo SONG; Longzheng CHEN; Hai XU; Tao ZHENG; Yueyue FEI // Agricultural Science & Technology;Nov2015, Vol. 16 Issue 11, p2437
The genetic differences among Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb., Luffa cylindrica (L.) Roem. and their F1 hybrid and F2 population were analyzed by ISSR technology. The results showed that the genomic DNA of test materials showed a high diversity; the genetic similarity coefficient between both...
- Transcription: Nucleosome fate influenced by RNA polymerase. Muers, Mary // Nature Reviews Genetics;Jan2012, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p2
The article presents a study in which authors have identified DNA loops which could transfer a nucleosome from downstream to upstream of RNA polymerase II (RNAP II) and found that transcription initiates partial dissociation of the histone octamer into a hexamer.
