The Chinese rice cultivar Duokang #1 carries a single dominant gene Gm-6(t) that confers resistance to the four biotypes of Asian rice gall midge (Orseolia oryzae Wood-Mason) known in China. Bulked segregant analysis was performed on progeny of a cross between Duokang #1 and the gall midge-susceptible cultivar Feng Yin Zhan using the RAPD method. The RAPD(More)
The study was aimed at the evaluation of nutritive values in terms of total protein and some essential amino acid content of a set of 258 diverse rice landraces maintained in the Germplasm Section of Indira Gandhi Agricultural University at Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Protein content of milled grains ranged from 4.91% to 12.08% with the mean of 6.63%. Similarly(More)
Micronutrient malnutrition is the most common form of nutrient deficiency among populations having a cereal-based diet. Rice is the staple food for one third of the world’s population but is poor source of iron and zinc content. We have characterized root transcriptome of diverse indica rice cultivars for expression of ten known metal homeostasis related(More)
Heat shock proteins (Hsps) and transcription factors (Hsfs) are considered as an important class of genes involved in plant’s response to heat stress. To elucidate the genotypic differences in rice in response to high temperature stress, plants were exposed to different levels of temperature ranging from 37 °C to 48 °C. The expression of genes belonging to(More)
Genes in the ZIP family encode transcripts to store and transport bivalent metal micronutrient, particularly iron (Fe) and or zinc (Zn). These transcripts are important for a variety of functions involved in the developmental and physiological processes in many plant species, including most, if not all, Poaceae plant species and the model species(More)
Minor millets are considered as nutrient-rich cereals having significant effect in improving human health. In this study, a rice ortholog of Ferric Chelate Reductase (FRO2) gene involved in plant metal uptake has been identified in iron-rich Little millet (LM) using PCR and next generation sequencing-based strategy. FRO2 gene-specific primers designed from(More)
Protein content in rice grain (Oryza sativa L.) is an important trait from human nutrition perspective, particularly for those having rice as a main food in daily life. Several QTLs identified for the grain protein content (GPC) needs refinement and further genetic dissection to truly understand the trait. In this study we have searched for the putative(More)
