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 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 ...
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 ...
Molecular markers for tracking variation in lipoxygenase activity in wheat breeding
Lipoxygenase (LOX) activity is an important factor determining the color of flour and end-use products of wheat. In the present study, quantitative trait loci (QTL) for LOX activity in common wheat were mapped using 71 ...
