Performance of early maturing Katumani and Kito maize composites under drought at the seedling and flowering stages
(African Crop Science Society, 1998)
Two widely-used open pollinated maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars from East Africa, Katumani and Kito composites, developed and improved for early maturity, grain yield and drought escape were evaluated for drought tolerance ...
Fructan and hormone connections
Plants rely on “reserve” (stored) carbon (C) for growth and survival when newly synthesized C becomes limited. Besides a classic yet recalcitrant C reserve starch, fructans, a class of sucrose-derived soluble fructosyl-o ...
Foliar abscisic acid-to-ethylene accumulation and response regulate shoot growth sensitivity to mild drought in wheat
Although, plant hormones play an important role in adjusting growth in response to environmental perturbation, the relative contributions of abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene remain elusive. Using six spring wheat genotypes ...
Whole-genome resequencing-based QTL-seq identified candidate genes and molecular markers for fresh seed dormancy in groundnut
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists; Society for Experimental Biology; Blackwell Publishing, 2020)
Genetic association mapping identifies single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes that affect abscisic acid levels in maize floral tissues during drought
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2011)
In maize, water stress at flowering causes loss of kernel set and productivity. While changes in the levels of sugars and abscisic acid (ABA) are thought to play a role in this stress response, the mechanistic basis and ...
