QTL mapping for flour and noodle colour components and yellow pigment content in common wheat
Improvement of flour colour is an important breeding objective for various wheat-based end-products. The objectives of this study were to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for flour colour components and yellow pigment ...
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 ...
Development of STS markers and establishment of multiplex PCR for Glu-A3 alleles in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) play a key role in determining the processing quality of the end-use products of common wheat. The objectives of this study were to identify genes at Glu-A3 locus, develop ...
Development of an allele-specific marker for Glu-B3 alleles in common wheat and establishment of a multiplex PCR assay
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) have significant effects on the processing quality of end-use products of common wheat. It is more efficient to discriminate LMW-GS alleles with PCR-based molecular markers ...
Molecular characterization of the Puroindoline a-D1b allele and development of an STS marker in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Kernel hardness is mainly controlled by one major genetic locus on the short arm of chromosome 5D in bread wheat. Twelve Chinese and CIMMYT wheat cultivars were characterized for the deletion region of Pina-D1b genotype ...
Functional markers in wheat: current status and future prospects
Functional markers (FM) are developed from sequence polymorphisms present in allelic variants of a functional gene at a locus. FMs accurately discriminate alleles of a targeted gene, and are ideal molecular markers for ...
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 quantities of protein fractions in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
One of the key targets of breeding programs in bread wheat is to improve the end-use quality. The relationships between quantities of protein fractions and dough rheological characters have been well established, but there ...
Allelic variants at the TaZds-D1 locus on wheat chromosome 2DL and their association with yellow pigment content
Zeta (æ)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme in the carotenoid biosynthetic pathway, which determines the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grains. In the present study, the full-length DNA ...
