Morpho-physiological traits associated with cold stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 2010)
Winter season maize (Zea mays L.) has emerged a new crop in many parts of South and Southeast Asia, where the crop has to face low temperature regimes (<5°C) for few weeks during vegetative growth stage. The objective of ...
Nucleotide diversity and molecular evolution of the PSY1 gene in Zea mays compared to some other grass species
Phytoene synthase (PSY), which is encoded by the phytoene synthase 1 (PSY1) gene, is the first rate-limiting enzyme in the plant carotenoid biosynthetic pathway. In order to examine the genetic diversity and evolution ...
