Analysis of the methylation status of the apomixis-specific region in Paspalum spp. suggests an epigenetic control on parthenogenesis
(Oxford University Press, 2014-12)
Apomixis, a clonal plant reproduction by seeds, is controlled in Paspalum spp. by a single locus which is blocked in terms of recombination. Partial sequence analysis of the apomixis locus revealed structural features of ...
Changes in micro RNA expression in a wild tuber-bearing Solanum species induced by 5-Azacytidine treatment
Phenotypic plasticity is often postulated as a principal characteristic of tuber-bearing wild Solanum species. The hypotheses to explore this observation have been developed based on the presence of genetic variation. In ...
Intragenic epigenetic changes modulate NCAM alternative splicing in neuronal differentiation
(Nature Publishing Group, 2013-08)
Alternative splicing contributes to cell type-specific transcriptomes. Here, we show that changes in intragenic chromatin marks affect NCAM (neural cell adhesion molecule) exon 18 (E18) alternative splicing during neuronal ...
Phenotypic instability and epigenetic variability in a diploid potato of hybrid origin, Solanum ruiz-lealii
(BioMed Central, 2009-02-20)
Background: The wild potato Solanum ruiz-lealii Brüch. (2n = 2x = 24), a species of hybrid origin, is endemic to Mendoza province, Argentina. Recurrent flower malformations, which varied among inflorescences of the same ...
