Enhanced growth and yield of greenhouse produced cucumber under high altitude areas of Kenya
(AGRICULTURA TROPICA ET SUBTROPICA, 2006)
Cucumber is a crop whose production has mainly been confined within the low altitude areas of Kenya. However, such areas are prone to frequent drought leading to poor quality and yield of the crop. The supply of cucumber ...
Microarray analysis of differentially expressed genes engaged in fruit development between Prunus mume and Prunus armeniaca.
(Journal of Plant Physiology, 2012-07)
Microarray analysis is a technique that can be employed to provide expression profiles of single genes and new insights to elucidate the biological mechanisms responsible for fruit development. To evaluate expression of ...
Characterization of microRNAs identified in a table grapevine cultivar with validation of computationally predicted grapevine miRNAs by miR-RACE.
(PLoS ONE, 2011-01)
Alignment analysis of the Vv-miRNAs identified from various grapevine cultivars indicates that over 30% orthologous Vv-miRNAs exhibit a 1-3 nucleotide discrepancy only at their ends, suggesting that this sequence discrepancy ...
Computational identification of microRNAs in apple expressed sequence tags and validation of their precise sequences by miR-RACE.
(Physiologia Plantarum, 2011-01)
Thirty-one potential miRNAs that belong to 16 miRNA families were discovered from more than 324 000 EST sequences of apple (Malus domestica). In addition, precise sequences, especially terminal nucleotides of the 16 apple ...
MiR-RACE, a new efficient approach to determine the precise sequences of computationally identified trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata) microRNAs.
(PLoS ONE, 2010-01)
Among the hundreds of genes encoding miRNAs in plants reported, much more were predicted by numerous computational methods. However, unlike protein-coding genes defined by start and stop codons, the ends of miRNA molecules ...
Economics of using different nitrogen sources and mulching materials for producing fresh market greenhouse cucumbers in Kenya.
(Agricultura Tropica, 2006-01)
There is increasing need for environmentally safe and economically profitable farming systems. Greenhouse trials for the production of cucumber was carried out in Kenya at Egerton University, Department of Horticulture in ...
