    The influence of Nicotiana alata-derived introgression on plant malformations of tobacco breeding lines resistant to tomato spotted wilt virus

    KORBECKA-GLINKA G.(1); TROJAK-GOLUCH A.(1); DOROSZEWSKA T.(1); GOEPFERT S.(2)

    Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is one of the most destructive viruses for tobacco cultivation. Cultivar “Polalta” carries a resistance gene introgressed from a wild species, Nicotiana alata, but the use of this cultivar in breeding is hampered by ...

    Monitoring of agricultural drought in tobacco growing areas in Poland in 2009-2017

    BERBEĆ T.; DOROSZEWSKI A.; BERBEĆ A.
    Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Research Institute, Pulawy, Poland
    Occurrence of unfavourable weather conditions (drought) causes significant losses in crop yields in the world. McKeown et al. [2006], in their work on long-term climate patterns related to yields, stated that by 2030 the periodic occurrence of ...

    Comparison of the degree of malformations in different breeding materials carrying Nicotiana alata-introgression conferring resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus

    TROJAK-GOLUCH A.(1); KORBECKA-GLINKA G.(1); DOROSZEWSKA T.(1); GOEPFERT S.(2)
    Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Research Institute, Pulawy, Poland
    Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) has been an important problem in tobacco cultivated in a moderate climate zone. The transfer of RTSW-al (TSWV resistance gene) from Nicotiana alata to the N. tabacum genome and the development of Virginia-type cultivars is ...

    Nicotiana species as sources of cytoplasmic male sterility in tobacco breeding

    BERBEĆ A.; BERBEĆ T.
    Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Research Institute, Pulawy, Poland
    The majority of cytoplasmically male sterile (cms) forms in tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum, have been produced by moving the whole nuclear genome from one species and re-installing it in the cytoplasmic milieu of another species thereby disrupting the ...

    Immune functions are perturbed to a greater extent with smoking rather than moist snuff use

    TRAN Q.T.(1); ARIMILLI S.(2); JOHNSON E.(3); LIU Gang(1); PRASAD G.L.(1)

    Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Existing epidemiological data suggest moist snuff consumption is generally associated with reduced health risks relative to ...

    Distinct gene expression changes in peripheral blood mononuclear cells exposed to combustible versus non-combustible tobacco product preparations

    TRAN N.Q.(1); ARIMILLI S.(2); MADAHIAN B.(3); HOMAYOUNI R.(3); PRASAD G.L.(1)
    (1) RAI Services, Winston-Salem, NC, USA; (2) Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC, USA; (3) Quire Inc., Memphis, TN, USA
    Cigarette smoking exerts diverse physiological effects including immune suppression. Existing epidemiological data show that consumption of smokeless tobacco products, such as moist snuff, is less harmful relative to smoking. We previously demonstrated ...

    Differential gene expression and functional responses in peripheral blood mononuclear cells pretreated with combustible and non-combustible tobacco products

    TRAN Q.T.(1); ARIMILLI S.(2); LIU Gang(1); MAKENA P.(1); PRASAD G.L.(1)
    (1) RAI Services Company, Winston-Salem, NC, USA; (2) Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA
    Chronic smoking is known to alter immune responses, which compromises tumor surveillance and host defense against microbial infections. We previously showed that smokers (SMK) exhibit distinct peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) gene expression ...

    Combustible and smokeless tobacco product preparations differentially regulate calcium mobilization in the human leukemic HL60 cell line

    MAKENA P.(2); ARIMILLI S.(1); DAMRATOSKI B.E.(1); PRASAD G.L.(2)
    (1) Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Winston-Salem, NC, U.S.A.; (2) RAI Services Co., Winston-Salem, NC 27102, U.S.A.
    Increased calcium (Ca 2+) mobilization is central to leukocyte signaling and for regulation of immune responses. Although evidence suggests that cigarette smoking affects several biological functions including inflammatory responses, how the use of ...

    Agronomic performance of cytoplasmic male sterile forms of flue-cured tobacco

    CZUBACKA A.; DEPTA A.; DOROSZEWSKA T.
    Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Research Institute, Pulawy, Poland
    Cytoplasmic male sterility (cms) in many crops is the basis for the production of commercial F1 hybrids. This is obtained by the combination of the nucleus of cultivated species with the cytoplasm of a wild species belonging to the same genus. The reason ...
