A high-density genetic map of hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) from the cross Chinese Spring × SQ1 and its use to compare QTLs for grain yield across a range of environments
A population of 96 doubled haploid lines (DHLs) was prepared from F1 plants of the hexaploid wheat cross Chinese Spring × SQ1 and was mapped with 567 RFLP, AFLP, SSR, morphological and biochemical markers covering all 21 chromosomes, which confirmed the group-7 effects on yield and identified two additional major yield QTLs on chromosomes 1D and 5A.
Dissecting a wheat QTL for yield present in a range of environments: from the QTL to candidate genes.
Comparisons with rice identified AINTEGUMENTA and G-protein subunit genes affecting lateral cell division at locations homologous to the wheat 7AL yield QTL, and it is likely that the yield gene(s) on 7AL affects plant productivity.
Characterization of Proteins from Grain of Different Bread and Durum Wheat Genotypes
The classical Osborne wheat protein fractions (albumins, globulins, gliadins, and glutenins), as well as several proteins from each of the four subunits of gliadin using SDS-PAGE analyses, were
Genotype × environment interaction for wheat yield in different drought stress conditions and agronomic traits suitable for selection
Total biomass and early vigour were found to be the most important agronomic traits for selecting high-yielding genotypes in a range of stress and non-stress conditions.
Small grain cereals compared for dietary fibre and protein contents
The content of dietary fibres (cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, NDF, ADF), tryptophan and proteins, as well as their quality index were determined in whole grains of bread and durum wheat, rye,
Population structure in a wheat core collection and genomic loci associated with yield under contrasting environments
Partial least squares regression, with nine environmental factors, showed that precipitation from tillering to maturity was the main environmental factor causing marker × environment associations for grain yield.
Effects of hull-less barley flour and flakes on bread nutritional composition and sensory properties
Abstract Barley is a desirable food ingredient, with health benefits provided by a β-glucan fibre fraction. A hull-less barley flour and flakes were incorporated into white and wholegrain wheat bread
Antioxidant activity of small grain cereals caused by phenolics and lipid soluble antioxidants
Abstract In this study, the content of soluble, free forms of phenolic compounds (total phenolics, flavonoids, PVPP (polyvinylpolypyrrolidone) bound phenolics, proanthocyanidins and phenolic acids),
Assessing drought tolerance and regional patterns of genetic diversity among spring and winter bread wheat using simple sequence repeats and phenotypic data
Assessment of drought tolerance and regional-based patterns of diversity of bread wheat accessions and new sources of diversity that could accelerate the development of improved wheat varieties better suited to meeting the challenges posed by changing climate revealed that the genotypes from North America exhibited more genetic diversity than those from other regions.
The importance of physiological traits in wheat breeding under irrigation and drought stress
Early vigor, early maturity and leaf senescence were found to be suitable for wheat breeding under different moisture regimes and can be used for the evaluation of large populations.
