 A doubled-haploid rice population of 123 lines from Azucena/IR64 was used for analyzing the developmental behavior of tiller number by conditional and unconditional QTL mapping methods. It was indicated that the number of QTLs significantly affecting tiller number was different at different measuring stages. Many QTLs controlling tiller growth identified(More)
The effects of different growth regulators on induction and growth of callus ofAsparagus densiflorus cv. Sprengeri were studied. Calluses grew more rapidly on Murashige and Skoog basal medium supplemented with 5.4 μM p-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (pCPA) and 4.4 μM 6-benzylaminopurine (BA) (medium 1) as compared to the same medium with 11.3 μM(More)
UNLABELLED The possibility to identify or develop new rice cultivars with low glycemic response was investigated. Twelve rice cultivars with a narrow range of amylose contents were selected based on their wide variation in rapid viscoanalyzer (RVA) pasting breakdown to study the relationship between starch digestibility and amylopectin fine structure and(More)
Low-molecular-weight (LMW) glutenin subunits consist mainly of two domains, one at the N- terminus which contains repeats of short amino-acid motifs, and a non-repetitive one rich in cysteine, at the C- terminal region. In previous reports, polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis has been used to show that large size variation exists among LMW and HMW glutenin(More)
Cross-reactivity of antibodies against almond major protein (AMP, a legumin), the major almond allergen, with cereal proteins may cause problems in detecting almond contaminants in cereal products when antibody-based assays are used. Rabbit polyclonal IgG antiserum produced against AMP was used to test cross-reactivity with protein extracts from maize, a(More)
Using the small intestine enterocyte Caco-2 cell model, sucrase-isomaltase (SI, the mucosal α-glucosidase complex) expression and modification were examined relative to exposure to different mono- and disaccharide glycemic carbohydrates. Caco-2/TC7 cells were grown on porous supports to post-confluence for complete differentiation, and dietary carbohydrate(More)
It has been previously shown that expression of a high-molecular-weight glutenin (HMW-GS) in transgenic wheat seeds resulted in the improvement of flour functional properties. In this study, potato flour viscosity was improved through a specific expression of a low-molecular-weight glutenin (LMW-GS-MB1) gene in tuber. The resulting construct was introduced(More)
A high protein digestibility/high-lysine mutant P721Q (hdhl) with a multi-folded protein body morphology has been developed, with a 22kDa α-kafirin single point mutation having also been recently identified. Relatively little is known regarding the resulting cellular response in hdhl endosperm. The aim is to elucidate these biochemical changes.(More)
