Novel structural and functional motifs in cellulose synthase (CesA) genes of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Cellulose is the primary determinant of mechanical strength in plant tissues. Late-season lodging is inversely related to the amount of cellulose in a unit length of the stem. Wheat is the most widely grown of all the crops ...
The screening of wheat germplasm for resistance to stripe and leaf rust in Kazakhstan using molecular markers
Resistance to stripe and leaf rusts is the most important objectives in Kazakhstan, and they are the major factor that adversely affects wheat yield and quality and finally causes considerable economic damage. This study ...
Research and field monitoring on transgenic crops by the Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maiz y Trigo (CIMMYT)
The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) aims to genetically enhance both crops and generate public sector-provided products for the resource poor, e.g., drought tolerant wheat and insect resistant ...
Visualisation of plastids in endosperm, pollen and roots of transgenic wheat expressing modified GFP fused to transit peptides from wheat SSU RubisCO, rice FtsZ and maize ferredoxin III proteins
The ability to target marker proteins to specific subcellular compartments is a powerful research tool to study the structure and development of organelles. Here transit sequences from nuclear-encoded, plastid proteins, ...
