QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2012)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is a serious wheat fungal disease, causing significant annual yield losses worldwide. The Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16 has shown good adult-plant resistance ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to leaf rust in the wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring using high-density SNP markers
Wheat leaf rust is an important disease worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is an effective means to control the disease. In the present study, 244 recombinant inbred lines from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring cross were ...
A high-density consensus map of common wheat integrating four mapping populations scanned by the 90k SNP Array
A high-density consensus map is a powerful tool for gene mapping, cloning and molecular marker-assisted selection in wheat breeding. The objective of this study was to construct a high-density, single nucleotide polymorphism ...
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 ...
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 ...
QTL mapping for adult plant resistance to powdery mildew in Italian wheat cv. Strampelli
The Italian wheat cv. Strampelli displays high resistance to powdery mildew caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici. The objective of this study was to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for resistance to powdery mildew ...
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 ...
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 ...
Establishment of multiplex-PCR for quality traits in common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2007)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) quality properties are strongly affected by the compositions of high-molecular-weight glutenin subunits, kernel hardness, amylase content, pre-harvest sprouting tolerance and presence or absence ...
