The Hero gene of tomato is a broad spectrum resistance gene that confers a high level of resistance to all pathotypes of the potato cyst nematodes Globodera rostochiensis and partial resistance to G. pallida. The gene was identified by map-based cloning, sequencing and complementation analysis of two susceptible tomato lines with an array of 13 overlapping(More)
C4 phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylases (PEPCase; EC 4.1.1.3) have evolved from ancestral non-photosynthetic (C3) isoforms during the evolution of angiosperms and thereby gained distinct kinetic and regulatory properties. In order to obtain insight into this evolutionary process we have studied the C3 isoforms, ppcB and ppcC, of the C4 dicot Flaveria trinervia(More)
The tomato Hero A gene is the only member of a multigene family that confers a high level (>80%) of resistance to all the economically important pathotypes of potato cyst nematode (PCN) species Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida. Although the resistance levels of transgenic tomato lines were similar to those of the tomato line LA1792 containing the(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) is a central enzyme of C4 and CAM photosynthesis but plants, in addition, contain various non-photosynthetic isoforms with characteristic and variable functions. The partial sequence and a detailed expression analysis of the PpcB and PpcC genes which encode non-photosynthetic PEPC isoforms in the C4 plant Flaveria(More)
Maize (Zea mays L.) is particularly sensitive to chilling in the early growth stages. The objective of this study was to determine quantitative trait loci (QTL) for early plant vigour of maize grown under cool and moderately warm conditions in Central Europe. A population of 720 doubled haploid (DH) lines was derived from a cross between two dent inbred(More)
