  Variation and transgressive segregations were studied in the backcross generations of populations involving three crosses in long bean [Vigna sesquipedalis (L.) Fruw]. Trends were different for different crosses. In Cross 1, high mean, variance and significant transgressive segregation (STS) pattern were exhibited by BC2F1 generation for shelf life, pod yield per plant and pod weight. In Cross 2, high means were shown by BC1F1 generations for shelf life and pod yield per plant, but high STS were observed in BC2F1 generation for shelf life, BC1F1 for pod yield per plant and BC1F2 for pod weight. In Cross 3, BC1F2 generation revealed high variances for shelf life, pod yield per plant and number of pods per plant, but highest STS values were revealed for BC1F3 (selected) for shelf life and pod yield per plant, BC2F1 for number of pods per plant, and BC1F2 for pod weight. In general, shelf life was found to have exhibited high mean and STS in the BC2F1 generation. Pod length, in general did not show good transgressive segregation in the crosses. Exploitation of these transgressive segregants in breeding programmes for improvement of the character of interest is suggested.

  Palm olein (PO) and red palm olein (RPO) are rich in tocopherols and tocotrienols. In addition, RPO also contains a high content of carotene. This study was to determine the effect of chronic intake of diets containing palm oils, varying in their vitamin E and carotene contents, on lipid profile in rats. Weaning male Wistar rats were fed either 18% RPO, 18% PO or 18% vitamin E-stripped palm olein (SPO) for 12 weeks. Plasma total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) and low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) were measured at weeks 4, 8 and 12. Feeding the different types of palm oil did not affect TC and HDL from week 4 through week 12, but there were reductions in TG in all dietary groups at week 12 compared to week 4 but differences between groups were not observed. The RPO group had lower LDL at week 12 (vs weeks 4 and 8) but LDL was not reduced in the PO and SPO groups. TC/HDL was reduced in the RPO group at week 12 compared to both weeks 4 and 8, but the PO group only reduced this ratio at week 12 compared to week 4. This finding suggests that chronic feeding of diets high in palm oils did not cause any detrimental effects on blood lipid profile. In addition, red palm olein which is rich in antioxidants in the forms of vitamin E and carotene, showed better effect in terms of reduction in LDL and TC/HDL.
