Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
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 important ...
Genetics of resistance to yellow rust in PBW343 × Kenya Kudu recombinant inbred line population and mapping of a new resistance gene YrKK
Yellow or stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is an important disease of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. A recombinant inbred line (RIL) population, derived from the cross PBW343 × ...
Characterization of Mexican Creole wheat landraces in relation to morphological characteristics and HMW glutenin subunit composition
One hundred lines derived from 14 wheat landraces collected in Mexico were characterized in relation to spike and grain morphology and HMW-glutenin subunit composition. Up to seven botanical varieties were identified among ...
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of polyphenol oxidase genes in common wheat and related species
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) genes in common wheat and its relatives would greatly advance the understanding of molecular mechanisms of grain PPO activity. In the present study, six wheat ...
Impact of CIMMYT varieties on the genetic diversity of wheat in Australia, 1973-1993
Wheats derived from germplasm developed by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) have been grown widely in Australia since the early 1970s. The impact of CIMMYT germplasm on the genetic diversity ...
