Badh2, Encoding Betaine Aldehyde Dehydrogenase, Inhibits the Biosynthesis of 2-Acetyl-1-Pyrroline, a Major Component in Rice Fragrance[W]
In rice (Oryza sativa), the presence of a dominant Badh2 allele encoding betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH2) inhibits the synthesis of 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline (2AP), a potent flavor component in riceExpand

Genome-wide patterns of genetic variation among elite maize inbred lines
We have resequenced a group of six elite maize inbred lines, including the parents of the most productive commercial hybrid in China. This effort uncovered more than 1,000,000 SNPs, 30,000 indelExpand

Discovery of a new fragrance allele and the development of functional markers for the breeding of fragrant rice varieties
The recessive fgr gene on chromosome 8 is associated with rice fragrance. It has been reported that this gene is a non-functional badh2 allele and that the functional Badh2 allele encoding putativeExpand

A maize wall-associated kinase confers quantitative resistance to head smut
Head smut is a systemic disease in maize caused by the soil-borne fungus Sporisorium reilianum that poses a grave threat to maize production worldwide. A major head smut quantitative resistanceExpand

A cluster of four receptor-like genes resides in the Vf locus that confers resistance to apple scab disease.
The Vf locus, derived from the crabapple species Malus floribunda 821, confers resistance to five races of the fungal pathogen Venturia inaequalis, the causal agent of apple scab disease. In ourExpand

Two receptor-like genes, Vfa1 and Vfa2, confer resistance to the fungal pathogen Venturia inaequalis inciting apple scab disease.
The Vf locus, originating from the crabapple species Malus floribunda 821, confers resistance to five races of the fungal pathogen Venturia inaequalis, the causal agent of apple scab disease.Expand
