Genetic diversity in a Poincianella pyramidalis (Tul.) L.P. Queiroz population assessed by RAPD molecular markers.
Poincianella pyramidalis (Tul.) L.P. Queiroz is an endemic Caatinga (Brazilian savannah biome) species that has been exploited for different purposes, although information is necessary about still existing natural populations. The objective of this study was to evaluate the genetic diversity among 20 P. pyramidalis individuals occurring in a population localized in the Caatinga biome of ... more
Characterization and phylogenetic affiliation of Actinobacteria from tropical soils with potential uses for agro-industrial processes.
Secondary metabolites produced by Actinobacteria of tropical soils represent a largely understudied source of novel molecules with relevant application in medicine, pharmaceutical and food industries, agriculture, and environmental bioremediation. The present study aimed to characterize sixty-nine Actinobacteria isolated from compost and tropical soils using morphological, biochemical, and ... more
Morphological, cytogenetic, and molecular characterization of Arachis kuhlmannii Krapov. & W.C. Greg. (Leguminosae).
Arachis kuhlmannii occurs in Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul States, Brazil. Its area of occurrence partially overlaps with that of other species in the Arachis section. Because of their morphological similarities, these species are often mistaken one for another. This study aimed the correct classification of available accessions as Arachis kuhlmannii, or other species, and the ... more
Genetic diversity and population structure analysis in Perilla frutescens from Northern areas of China based on simple sequence repeats.
In this study, 21 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were used to evaluate the genetic diversity and population structure among 77 Perilla accessions from high-latitude and middle-latitude areas of China. Ninety-five alleles were identified with an average of 4.52 alleles per locus. The average polymorphic information content (PIC) and genetic diversity values were 0.346 and 0.372, ... more
Molecular detection of the pathogenic protist Perkinsus marinus in farmed native and introduced oysters (Crassostrea spp.) in southern Brazil
The parasitic protozoan Perkinsus marinus (Perkinsidae) is known to infect marine bivalves; unfortunately, treatment options are quite limited. The parasite is associated with mass mortalities worldwide and it requires notification to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). In Brazil, since the first report of P. marinus infecting ... more
Complete genome sequence of Francisella noatunensis subsp. orientalis strain F1 and prediction of vaccine candidates against warm and cold-water fish francisellosis
Francisella noatunensis subsp. orientalis (Fno) is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes granulomatous infections in fish reared at low water temperatures; it has been responsible for a large number of deaths in tilapia fish farms. Fno has been reported in many countries in the last decade. Studies on phylogenomic relationships among isolates are ... more
Gene structural analysis and functional prediction of Chi protein produced by the bacterium Stenotrophomonas maltophilia
Molecular characterization of genes is a tool used to understand gene function. Chitin is the most abundant nitrogenous organic compound in nature; it is basically inert, but it can be transformed by the action of chitinases to several derivatives, which are of great interest in various areas of industry. These enzymes are widely distributed in many organisms and ... more
Circulation and molecular characterization of Chikungunya virus (Togaviridae) reveals a new mutation (E2-N207D) in Espirito Santo, Brazil
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an RNA virus from the family Togaviridae transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes. The first report of CHIKV infection in Brazil dates to 2014; since then, the virus has become a major public health challenge. The main goal of this study was to perform a phylogenetic analysis of CHIKV isolates from ... more
Phylogenetic analyses and species delimitation in the section Corydalis (Papaveraceae) based on chloroplast markers
The genus Corydalis (Papaveraceae), which is distributed in temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, has been taxonomically studied mainly on the basis of morphological and molecular genomic information. In the present study, 14 species that belong to the Korean section Corydalis were collected in South Korea and phylogenetically analyzed ... more
Parameters of a dynamic mechanistic model of cattle growth retain enough biological interpretation for genotype-to-phenotype mapping.
This study aimed to investigate the predictability of a phenotype when using a dynamic model of cattle growth. Genotypic and phenotypic information on Nellore (Bos indicus) cattle were used in a genome-wide association analysis designed to contrast the biological interpretation of core parameters [conversion efficiency of metabolizable energy to net energy for gain (k) and adjusted final ... more
