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 ...
Quantitative trait loci mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in Chinese wheat cultivar Bainong 64
(American Phytopathological Society, 2009)
Adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective means of controlling powdery mildew in wheat. In the present study, 406 simple-sequence repeat markers were used to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for APR to powdery mildew ...
