 Intergeneric hybrids between Brassica juncea (2n=36), B. carinata (2n=34) and Orychophragmus violaceus (2n=24) were produced when B. juncea and B. carinata cultivars were used as female parents. The hybrids between B. juncea and O. violaceus had an intermediate morphology except for petal colour and were partially fertile. The hybrids between B. carinata(More)
Investigations to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) governing cooking quality traits including amylose content, gel consistency and gelatinization temperature (expressed by the alkali spread value) were conducted using a set of 241 RIL populations derived from an elite hybrid cross of “Zhenshan 97” × “Minghui 63” and their reciprocal backcrosses BC1F1(More)
The Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) DNA polymerase gene was identified with the aid of an oligonucleotide probe corresponding to an amino acid sequence conserved among viral DNA polymerases of other virus families. A 3.6-kb pair region of the AcMNPV DNA, from 39.5 to 42.5 map units (m.u.), was sequenced and an open reading frame(More)
Glucosinolate and erucic acid are important plant compounds in rapeseed believed to have numerous functions in rapeseed-environment interactions. However, little is known about the QTL information related to the two different genetic systems including the embryo nuclear chromosomes and maternal plant nuclear chromosomes for glucosinolate content (GSLC) and(More)
A 1.4 kb region downstream of the DNA polymerase gene of Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus was sequenced. Two open reading frames (ORFs) were identified of 927 and 474 bases in length. The 927 base ORF encodes a 34.8K protein as determined by in vitro translation of both hybrid-selected RNA and RNA synthesized in vitro from a 927 base ORF(More)
The dynamic expression of genes for protein and lysine contents of rice grain under different environments was carried out with time-dependent measures by using the developmental genetic models for quantitative traits of triploid endosperm in cereal crops. The results showed that the genetic effects, especially genotype × environment (GE) interaction(More)
The X protein of human hepatitis B virus (HBV) acts as an indirect transcriptional transactivator to regulate the expression of many viral and cellular genes as well as playing a critical role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. While the biological importance of HBx has been well established, the cellular and molecular bases of its function(More)
The dynamic expression of genes for oil and protein contents of rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) was carried out with time-dependent measures by using the developmental genetic models for quantitative traits in diploid plant. The unconditional and conditional analysis showed that the accumulated genetic effects or net genetic effects from diploid embryo nuclear(More)
In recent years, the relationships among some nutrientquality traits in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) have been studied in terms of phenotypic, genotypic and/or environmental correlations (Kondra and Thomas 1975; Bahram et al. 1977; Yadava et al. 1983; Chen and Beversdorf 1990; Ecker and Yaniv 1993; Liu et al. 2001). It has also been recognized that(More)
It is necessary for rice breeders to understand the genetic basis of nutrient quality traits of rice. Essential amino acids are most important in determining the nutrient quality of rice grain and can affect the health of people who depend on rice as a staple food. In view of the paucity of genetic information available on essential amino acids inindica(More)
