Molecular cytogenetic identification of a wheat (Triticum aestivum)-American dune grass (Leymus mollis) translocation line resistant to stripe rust

Y. Bao, Wang, J., He, F., Ma, H., and Wang, H., Molecular cytogenetic identification of a wheat (Triticum aestivum)-American dune grass (Leymus mollis) translocation line resistant to stripe rust, vol. 11, pp. 3198-3206, 2012.

Leymus mollis, a perennial allotetraploid (2n = 4x = 28), known as American dune grass, is a wild relative of wheat that could be useful for cultivar improvement. Shannong0096, developed from interspecific hybridization between common wheat cv. Yannong15 and L. mollis, was analyzed with cytological procedures, genomic in situ hybridization, stripe-rust resistance screening and molecular marker analysis.

Assessment of BCL2/J(H) translocation in healthy individuals exposed to low-level radiation of 137CsCl in Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil

H. F. Nunes, Laranjeira, A. B. A., Yunes, J. A., Costa, E. O. A., Melo, C. Ode A., D. Silva, deM. e, and da Cruz, A. D., Assessment of BCL2/J(H) translocation in healthy individuals exposed to low-level radiation of 137CsCl in Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil, vol. 12. pp. 28-36, 2013.

Healthy radio-exposed individuals who received low levels of Cesium-137 radiation during the accident that occurred in Goiânia in 1987, their families and controls were tested for the detection of t(14;18)-rearranged B cells in peripheral blood by using a highly sensitive, real-time quantitative PCR method. The chromosomal translocation t(14;18)(q32;q21) is characteristic of follicular lymphoma and is a frequent abnormality observed in other types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
