Conference Paper
Although there are more than 6000 plum varieties originated from different wild species from Europe, Asia and North America, there is a constant need to develop new varieties with better characteristics, tolerant/resistant to adverse environmental factors and the most important diseases, in the first place Sharka virus. In addition, one of the most...

Ethylene is the simplest signalling molecule with a hormone-like function that plays a major role in many developmental processes, including ripening of climacteric apple fruit. The allelic polymorphisms of ACS1 and ACO1 genes, encoding for ACC synthase and ACC oxidase, which catalyse the last two steps in the ethylene biochemical pathway, were ana...

A newly released, late ripening plum cultivar ‘Pozna Plava’ sets fruit poorly, although it produces high quality fruit. This study aimed to evaluate which factors in the reproductive process could be related to the lack of fruit set. In two consecutive years, establishment of a suitable polleniser and the stage of ovule development at anthesis as w...
Article
Factors such as the stage of ovule maturity and longevity at flowering, when the stigma is able to receive the pollen, are significant in terms of fruit set. Various abnormalities during ovule development can often limit pollination, effective pollination period (EPP) and fruit set. In the plum cultivar 'Pozna Plava' (Prunus domestica L.), in the o...

The objective of the joint project between the two universities of Bonn and Sarajevo was to study the effects of climate change associated with warmer winter and spring temperatures on fruit tree phenology. Changes in flowering date of apple and cherry were correlated with local weather data obtained concomitantly on-site at four locations in the B...

Self-incompatibility in fruits prevents self-fertilization by recognition and rejection of its own or genetically identical pollen. Occurrence of gametophyte incompatibility is accompanied by irregular pollen tube growth with an abundant accumulation of callose in it. In a three-year period, pollen tube incompatibility in the style of the plum cult...

Although sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) shows gametophytic self-incompatibility which is controlled by the multiallelic locus S, overlap in phenophase of full flowering is another crucial factor for the most effective pollination and fertilization between compatible cultivars. This study was carried out to determine the S-RNase genotype using the P...

Article
The allelic polymorphism and inheritance of MdACS1 and MdACO1 genes were analysed in 28 apple cultivars, which were derived from reciprocal crosses of the following parental pairs: ‘Golden Delicious’ × ‘James Grieve’, ‘Golden Delicious’ × ‘Jonathan’, ‘Cox's Orange Pippin’ × ‘Golden Delicious’, ‘Cox's Orange Pippin’ × ‘Jonathan’.

Ethylene, as the simplest signaling molecule with hormone-like function, regulates a broad spectrum of different processes in plants, including ripening. It is perceived by a receptor family divided into two subfamilies (I and II). In apple, ETR1 gene encodes one of ethylene receptors - ETR1 receptor which is a member of subfamily I. ETR1 genotypes...

Ethylene is a plant hormone, which plays an important role in the ripening of climacteric fruits such as the apple. We studied allelic polymorphism of the ETR1 gene, encoding ethylene receptor, in 23 autochthonous apple cultivars. The polymorphism was revealed by combining the gene specific PCR and restriction of PCR product. Four alleles of the ET...

Project
CherrySeRB is basically oriented towards the field of agro-biodiversity, aiming to add value to unexplored Serbian and Balkan fruit genetic resources through new protocols and approaches for their genotypic and phenotypic characterisation. Two fruit species of worldwide importance are targeted  diploid sweet cherry and tetraploid sour cherry. The main idea of CherrySeRB is connection of the production challenges arising from climate change and demands for quality and healthy fruits, and the richness of Serbian cherry germplasm that is still unused enough. Characterisation of the indigenous genotype potential for desirable reproductive properties and defining ʻgood reproductive behaviour cherry modelʼ that can face warmer temperature conditions during the flowering are in focus. CherrySeRB will also provide S-genotyping and the choice of suitable pollenisers that maximize fertilization efficacy for landraces, as well as their nutritional/phytochemical profiles that will enable obtaining of new high-added value nutraceutical products.Organized around four pillars that include six WPs, CherrySeRB combines interdisciplinary modern methodologies – molecular, for identification of S-haplotypes in definition of GSI-status (DNA diagnostic strategy); biological, for revealing suitable polleniser(s) (assessment of the pollen tube growth in vivo by fluorescence microscopy; the fertilization efficacy parameters); histological, for determining ovary function after exposing to different flowering temperatures (cyto-embryological and histochemical testing); nutritional, for characterisation of fruit quality and health-promoting compounds (texture and colorimetric analysis, HPLC, UV-Vis, etc.); genotype identification (S-genotyping; pollen grain characterisation by SEM); statistical (models in reaching new scientific conclusions). Data, protocols and novel cherry material will be made available to breeders, biotechnology scientists and cherry-sector stakeholders. Representing novelty in breeding approach that can be applicable to other fruit species, the ultimate goal of CherrySeRB is to foster the use of Serbian cherry germplasm as the material adapted to climate change in order to contribute to sustainable fruit production and ensure the availability of healthy food for the future.
