Barley stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. hordei, is one of the most important barley (Hordeum vulgare) diseases in the United States. The disease is best controlled using resistant cultivars. Barley genotype Grannenlose Zweizeilige (GZ) has a recessive gene (rpsGZ) that is effective against all races of P. striiformis f. sp. hordei(More)
The pituitary cell-specific transcription factor Pit-1 has been show to trans-activate expression of the prolactin (PRL) promoter in non-pituitary cells. However, the cyclic AMP response element (CRE)-binding protein CREB is known to play a major role in cell-specific expression of hepatocyte-specific genes. Since the PRL promoter contains an asymmetrical(More)
Study on hybrid low fertility. Interspecific hybridizations promote gene transfer between species and play an important role in plant speciation and crop improvement. However, hybrid sterility that commonly found in the first generation of hybrids hinders the utilization of interspecific hybridization. The combination of divergent parental genomes can(More)
