Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are important ...
Molecular mapping of leaf rust resistance gene LrBi16 in Chinese wheat cultivar Bimai 16
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the most widespread diseases in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) globally. With the objective of identifying and mapping new genes for resistance to leaf rust, F1, F2 ...
Prevalence of a novel puroindoline b allele in Yunnan endemic wheats (Triticum aestivum ssp. yunnanense King)
Grain hardness is a major factor influencing the classification and end-use quality of bread wheat. In this study, 40 Yunnan endemic wheats, 21 historical cultivars and 66 current cultivars and advanced lines were investigated ...
Pyramiding adult-plant powdery mildew resistance QTLs in bread wheat
Powdery mildew is an important wheat disease worldwide. Pyramiding of minor resistance genes can be an effective approach for developing durable resistance to the disease. Twenty one lines carrying two-five resistance genes ...
Composition and functional analysis of low-molecular-weight glutenin alleles with Aroona near-isogenic lines of bread wheat
(BioMed Central, 2012)
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) strongly influence the bread-making quality of bread wheat. These proteins are encoded by a multi-gene family located at the Glu-A3, Glu-B3 and Glu-D3 loci on the short arms ...
Identification of genomic regions controlling adult-plant stripe rust resistance in Chinese Landrace Pingyuan 50 through bulked segregant analysis
(American Phytopathological Society, 2010)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most widespread and destructive wheat diseases worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars with adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective approach for ...
Contribution of common wheat protein fractions to dough properties and quality of northern-style Chinese steamed bread
Thirty-three cultivars and advanced lines originated from China, Mexico, and Australia were sown in four environments in Chinese spring wheat regions to investigate the association between gluten protein fractions determined ...
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of polyphenol oxidase genes in common wheat and related species
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) genes in common wheat and its relatives would greatly advance the understanding of molecular mechanisms of grain PPO activity. In the present study, six wheat ...
Quantitative trait loci mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in Chinese wheat cultivar Bainong 64
(American Phytopathological Society, 2009)
Adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective means of controlling powdery mildew in wheat. In the present study, 406 simple-sequence repeat markers were used to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for APR to powdery mildew ...
