Thorough understanding of seed starch biosynthesis and accumulation mechanisms is of great importance for agriculture and crop improvement strategies. We conducted the first comprehensive study of the dynamic development of starch granules and the regulation of starch biosynthesis in Brachypodium distachyon and compared the findings with those reported for(More)
Brachypodium distachyon, a small wild grass within the Pooideae family, is a new model organism for exploring the functional genomics of cereal crops. It was shown to have close relationships to wheat, barley and rice. Here, we describe the molecular characterisation and evolutionary relationships of high molecular weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) genes(More)
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS), encoded by Glu-3 complex loci in hexaploid wheat, play important roles in the processing quality of wheat flour. To date, the molecular characteristics and effects on dough quality of individual Glu-3 alleles and their encoding proteins have been poorly studied. We used a Glu-A3 deletion line of the Chinese(More)
Low molecular weight glutenin subunit is one of the important quality elements in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Although considerable allelic variation has been identified, the functional properties of individual alleles at Glu-3 loci are less studied. In this work, we performed the first comprehensive study on the molecular characteristics and functional(More)
Wheat grain high molecular weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) are the major determinants of dough elasticity and viscosity, and thus of breadmaking quality. Most known HMW-GS genes in bread wheat have been already cloned except for very few such as 1By18 and 1By19. In this study, HMW-GS 1By18 gene was isolated from bread wheat for the first time. In the(More)
The endoplasmic reticulum chaperone binding protein (BiP) is an important functional protein, which is involved in protein synthesis, folding assembly, and secretion. In order to study the role of BiP in the process of wheat seed development, we cloned three BiP homologous cDNA sequences in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum), completed by rapid amplification(More)
A novel integrated single-inductor dual-output (SIDO) buck converter with peak current common-mode and the two output voltage ripples comparison differential-mode control method in continuous conduction mode is presented. The system can use only one inductor to provide two independent output voltages, 1.2 V and 1.8 V, with a maximum total output current 460(More)
