QTLs asociados al contenido de carotenos en hojas de maiz (Zea mays L.)
Los carotenos son pigmentos antioxidantes que captan foto¬nes del espectro de luz visible y protegen a los tejidos de las plantas contra la foto-oxidación, lo cual está relacionado con la tasa fotosintética y rendimiento ...
Metodo economico y eficiente para la cuantificacion colorimetrica de lisina en grano de maiz
Los maíces (Zea Mays L.) de alta calidad proteínica (ACP) tienen mayor contenido de lisina y triptófano, dos aminoácidos esenciales que normalmente están presentes en bajas cantidades en el grano de maíz. La metodología ...
Enhancing the mineral and vitamin content of wheat and maize through plant breeding
More than half of the world's population suffers micronutrient undernourishment. The main sources of vitamins and minerals (iron, zinc, and vitamin A) for low-income rural and urban populations are staple foods of plant ...
Physical properties and carotenoid content of maize kernels and its nixtamalized snacks
Vitamin A and protein deficiencies afflict hundreds of millions of people, and because maize is a staple food providing a large portion of energy and nutrients for many, its genetic fortification or biofortification could ...
Advances in maize genomics and their value for enhancing genetic gains from breeding
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2009)
Maize is an important crop for food, feed, forage, and fuel across tropical and temperate areas of the world. Diversity studies at genetic, molecular, and functional levels have revealed that, tropical maize germplasm, ...
Reliable and inexpensive colorimetric method for determining protein-bound tryptophan in maize kernels
Biofortification programs in maize have led to the development of quality protein maize (QPM) with increased contents of the essential amino acids lysine and tryptophan, and increased nutritional value for protein deficient ...
Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) assessment of Delta18O and nitrogen and ash contents for improved yield potential and drought adaptation in maize
The oxygen isotope composition (ä18O), accumulation of minerals (ash content), and nitrogen (N) content in plant tissues have been recently proposed as useful integrative physiological criteria associated with yield potential ...
