Quantitative trait loci mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in bread wheat
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2006)
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is a major disease to wheat (Triticum aestivum) worldwide. Use of adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective method to develop wheat cultivars with durable ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Development of a fingerprinting database and assembling an SSR reference kit for genetic diversity analysis of wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2006)
Understanding of the current and expanded genetic diversity is very important for raising the yield of wheat. Genetic diversity based on molecular markers has been studied in plants for over thirty decades. SSR is the ...
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 ...
Effect of 1BL/1RS translocation on grain quality and noodle quality in bread wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2004)
Totally, 152 wheat cultivars from China, Australia, and USA, were used as to identify the presence of 1BL/1RS translocation, and for the composition of IIMW and LMW glutenin subunits. Seventy-eight cultivars were grown at ...
Measurement of wheat hardness by near infrared transmittance spectroscopy
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2004)
583 samples of wheat cultivars from major wheat production area collected in 2001 and 2002 seasons were used to measure kernel hardness by near infrared transmittance (NIT) spectroscopy. Two algorithms, i.e. partial least ...
