Several Triticum aestivum L.-Haynaldia villosa disomic 6VS/6AL translocation lines with powdery mildew resistance were developed from the hybridization between common wheat cultivar Yangmai 5 and alien substitution line 6V(6A). Mitotic and meiotic C-banding analysis, aneuploid analysis with double ditelosomic stocks, in situ hybridization, as well as the(More)
Activation of tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channels contributes to action potential electrogenesis in neurons. Antisense oligonucleotide studies directed against Na(v)1.8 have shown that this channel contributes to experimental inflammatory and neuropathic pain. We report here the discovery of A-803467, a sodium channel blocker that potently blocks(More)
 Knowledge of the biological significance underlying quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for disease resistance is generally limited. In recent years, advances in plant-microbe interactions and genome mapping have lead to an increased understanding of the genes involved in plant defense and quantitative disease resistance. Here, we report on the application of(More)
Chitinases and β-1,3-glucanases are important components of plant defense in response to attack by pathogens. To identify specific chitinases and β-1,3-glucanases, we constructed a cDNA library using mRNA from wheat spikelets inoculated with conidia of Fusarium graminearum. Two chitinase and two β-1,3-glucanase clones were isolated using a rice chitinase Ia(More)
 Defense response (DR) genes are a broad class involved in plant defense. In this study we mapped 36 probes representing seven classes of defense response genes. This collection of probes represents genes involved in the hypersensitive response (HR), pathogenesis-related (PR) genes, genes for the flavonoid metabolic pathway, genes encoding(More)
Number of tillers per plant, plant growth habit in seedling and adult stages, and spike and spikelet characters are agronomically important features of the gross morphology of wheat. To localize to wheat chromosomes the genes for these traits, we scored them in a set of wheat recombinant-inbred mapping lines already well genotyped with molecular markers.(More)
Despite the potential of service-orientation and the efforts devoted so far, we are still to witness a significant uptake of service technologies outside of enterprise environments. A core reason for this limited uptake is the lack of appropriate publishing platforms able to deal with the existing heterogeneity in the service technologies landscape and able(More)
The possibility of controlling wheat scab (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schw.) was explored by engineering wheat plants for constitutive expression of pathogenesis-related (PR) protein genes. A rice thaumatin-like protein (TLP) gene (tlp) and a rice chitinase gene (chi11) were introduced into the spring wheat cultivar ’Bobwhite’ by co-transformation of(More)
This paper presents a methodology to automate natural language requirements analysis and class model generation based on the Rational Unified Process (RUP). Use-case language schemas are proposed to reduce complexity and vagueness of natural language. Some rules are identified and used to automate class model generation from use-case specifications. A CASE(More)
 Five disomic, two double-disomic, and two ditelosomic addition lines and one disomic substitution line derived from the crosses of Triticum aestivum (2n=6x=42, AABBDD)×Leymus racemosus (2n= 4x=28, JJNN) were identified by C-banding analysis. The homoeology of the added Leymus chromosomes was determined by RFLP analysis. Four of five disomic addition lines(More)
