Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of kernel shape and weight in common wheat was conducted using a set of 131 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) derived from ‘Chuan 35050’ × ‘Shannong 483’. The RIL and their two parental genotypes were evaluated for kernel length (KL), kernel width (KW), thousand-kernel weight (TKW), and test weight (TW) in four different(More)
Nutrient use efficiency (NuUE), comprising nutrient uptake and utilization efficiency, is regarded as one of the most important factors for wheat yield. In the present study, six morphological, nine nutrient content and nine nutrient utilization efficiency traits were investigated at the seedling stage using a set of recombinant inbred lines (RILs), under(More)
DArT and SSR markers were used to saturate and improve a previous genetic map of RILs derived from the cross Chuan35050 × Shannong483. The new map comprised 719 loci, 561 of which were located on specific chromosomes, giving a total map length of 4008.4 cM; the rest 158 loci were mapped to the most likely intervals. The average chromosome length was 190.9(More)
The uptake and utilization of nitrogen (N) by plants are affected by the different forms of N in the soil. In this study, eight morphological traits at the seedling stage were investigated using a set of recombinant inbred lines (RILs). Three hydroponic culture experiments were conducted using three different NO3 −/NH4 + ratios (T1 at 50/50 %, T2 at 100/0 %(More)
Sucrose non-fermenting 1-related protein kinases (SnRKs) comprise a major family of signaling genes in plants and are associated with metabolic regulation, nutrient utilization and stress responses. This gene family has been proposed to be involved in sucrose signaling. In the present study, we cloned three copies of the TaSnRK2.10 gene from bread wheat on(More)
Potassium (K) is one of the most important mineral nutrients limiting plant growth in agricultural systems. This study investigated the effects of low-K treatments and detected quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for K efficiency traits at the seedling and adult stages of wheat. Eleven seedling traits under a hydroponic culture trial with five K treatments and(More)
