Comparison of low molecular weight glutenin subunits identified by SDS-PAGE, 2-DE, MALDI-TOF-MS and PCR in common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) play a crucial role in determining end-use quality of common wheat by influencing the viscoelastic properties of dough. Four different methods - sodium dodecyl ...
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 ...
Mapping of quantitative trait loci for adult plant resistance to stripe rust in German wheat cultivar Ibis
The German wheat cultivar Ibis has excellent adult plant resistance (APR) to stripe rust in Gansu, a hotspot for stripe rust in China. To elucidate the genetic basis of APR to stripe rust in Ibis, 237 F3 lines derived from ...
QTL mapping for adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in a common wheat RIL population derived from Chuanmai 32/Chuanyu 12
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is a devastating wheat disease worldwide. The Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanmai 32 has shown stable resistance to stripe rust for 10 yr in Sichuan Province, a hotspot ...
Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
Ζ (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 ...
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of phytoene synthase 1 (Psy1) genes in common wheat and related species
(BioMed Central, 2009)
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of Psy1 genes in common wheat and its relatives would help to understand the genetic diversity and evolution of Psy1 gene in common wheat and its related species. In the present study, ...
Molecular mapping of a non-host resistance gene YrpstY1 in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) for resistance to wheat stripe rust
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Cultivated barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) is considered as a non-host or inappropriate host species for wheat stripe rust caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici . Most barley cultivars show a broad-spectrum resistance ...
Characterization of novel LMW-GS genes at Glu-D3 locus on chromosome 1D in Aegilops tauschii
(BioMed Central, 2008)
The objectives of this study were to clarify the relationship between LMW-GS Glu-D3 gene of Ae. tauschii registered in GenBank and the six Glu-D3 genes including 12 allelic variants of common wheat characterized in our ...
Seedling and slow rusting resistances to leaf rust in CIMMYT wheat lines
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
CIMMYT wheat has played an important role in wheat breeding in China. Identification of leaf rust resistance genes in CIMMYT wheat is important for developing wheat cultivars with resistance to leaf rust in China. A total ...
Mapping QTLs for polyphenol oxidase activity in a DH population from common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2005)
The polyphenol oxidase ( PPO) activity is a major factor to cause an undesirable brown discoloration of wheat based end products during processing or storage. A double haploid (DH) population with 71 lines derived from ...
