    Heavy metal levels in acid soils of Northwest Greece and in leaves of Oriental tobacco

    BARBAYIANNIS N.; THEODORA M.; PAPATOLIOS K.; PAPADOPOULOS G.; STEFANOU S.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
    Tobacco accumulates heavy metals, such as Cd, and this might be a problem in the case tobacco is cultivated in acid soils, because heavy metal availability is expected to be increased. Soil and tobacco samples were collected in 1998, from areas of...

    Smoke condensate mutagenicity in several tobacco types: preliminary study by sister chromatid exchanges

    DI MURO A.; SORRENTINO C.; DEL PIANO L.; ABET M.; BARBATO L.; CUCINIELLO A.; COZZOLINO E.; LOMBARDI P.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    Smoke condensate obtained from different tobacco "types" produced in Italy were tested for mutagenic activity by Sister Chromatid Exchanges (SCEs) test, utilizing cultured human blood lymphocytes. It was observed that tobacco "types" differred in...

    Genetic variability in Nicotiana tabacum and Nicotiana species as revealed by RAPD markers

    DEL PIANO L.; ABET A.; SORRENTINO C.; ACANFORA F.; DI MURO A.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    There is presently no information on the level of genetic variability in N. tabacum and in Nicotiana genus as revealed by RAPD markers, a knowledge which could be useful for taxonomic and breeding purposes. The purpose of this paper is to assess...

    Occurrence of eggplant mottled dwarf nucleorhabdovirus in tobacco crops in Greece

    KATIS N.; CHATZIVASSILIOU E.; CLAY C.; AVGELIS A.; MANOUSSOPOULOS I.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
    In August 1993, unusual virus-like symptoms were observed in tobacco plants ( Nicotiana tabacum L.) of the cvs Myrodata Agriniou in the area of Agrinio (Central Greece). In 1994 and 1995 similar symptoms were noticed in the cv. Virginia in the area...

    In vitro selection of clones tolerant and/or resistant to large spectrum herbicides (Glyphosate and Sulfonylureas) in commercial cultivars of tobacco (Nicotiana sp.)

    CERSOSIMO A.; SORRENTINO C.; DEL PIANO L.; ABET M.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Rovolone (VR), Italy.
    This study reports the survey on the variability generated by in vitro cultures in order to isolate possible mutants bearing a character of resistance and/or tolerance to large-spectrum herbicides (Glyphosate and Sulfonylureas). By using substrates:...
