A complex gene cluster for indole-diterpene biosynthesis in the grass endophyte Neotyphodium lolii.
Lolitrems are a structurally diverse group of indole-diterpene mycotoxins synthesized by Epichloë/Neotyphodium endophytes in association with Pooid grasses. Using suppression subtractiveExpand

Functionally associated molecular genetic marker map construction in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
A molecular marker-based map of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) has been constructed through the use of polymorphisms associated with expressed sequence tags (ESTs). A pair-cross betweenExpand

Molecular genetics of fructan metabolism in perennial ryegrass.
Fructans are the main storage carbohydrates of temperate grasses, sustaining regrowth immediately after defoliation, as well as contributing to the nutritive value of feed. Fructan metabolism isExpand

TaASY1 promotes homologous chromosome interactions and is affected by deletion of Ph1.
During meiosis, chromosomes are sorted into homologous pairs as a preface to their intimate association via recombination and synapsis. However, little is known about the mechanism used toExpand

Fine-scale comparative genetic and physical mapping supports map-based cloning strategies for the self-incompatibility loci of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
Perennial ryegrass is an obligate outbreeding pasture grass of the Poaceae family, with a two-locus (S and Z) gametophytic self-incompatibility (SI) mechanism. This system has provided a majorExpand

Isolation and characterisation of a sucrose: sucrose 1-fructosyltransferase gene from perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne).
A sucrose: sucrose 1-fructosyltransferase (1-SST) gene and cDNA (Lp 1-SST) from perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) were isolated. The Lp 1-SST gene was fully sequenced and shown to contain threeExpand

Isolation and characterisation of three cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase homologue cDNAs from perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
Summary Three cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD, EC 1.1.1.195) homologue cDNAs ( LpCAD1, LpCAD2 and LpCAD3 ) were isolated and characterised in perennial ryegrass ( Lolium perenne ). SequenceExpand
