(1→3),(1→4)-ß-Glucans had previously been detected in nonlignified cell wall preparations of only the Poaceae and five other families in the graminoid clade of the Poales (s.l.). Cell walls of vegetative organs of 12 species in nine families of the Poales (s.l.) were examined by immunogold labeling using a monoclonal antibody to (1→3),(1→4)-ß-glucans. Three(More)
Ester-linked ferulic acid occurs in the cell walls of two major groups of angiosperms, the commelinid monocotyledons and the ‘core’ Caryophyllales, at concentrations >3.5 mg g−1 cell walls, and has been detected in primary cell walls by its autofluorescence using ultraviolet fluorescence microscopy. Both of these groups are resolved as monophyletic clades(More)
Genomic prediction models for multi-year dry matter yield, via genotyping-by-sequencing in a composite training set, demonstrate potential for genetic gain improvement through within-half sibling family selection. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is a key source of nutrition for ruminant livestock in temperate environments worldwide. Higher seasonal(More)
