A novel avian hypothalamic peptide inhibiting gonadotropin release.
The neuropeptide control of gonadotropin secretion at the level of the anterior pituitary gland is primarily through the stimulatory action of the hypothalamic decapeptide, gonadotropin-releasingExpand

Thyrotrophin in the pars tuberalis triggers photoperiodic response
Molecular mechanisms regulating animal seasonal breeding in response to changing photoperiod are not well understood. Rapid induction of gene expression of thyroid-hormone-activating enzyme (type 2Expand

Identification and Validation of Markers Linked to Broad‐Spectrum Stem Rust Resistance Gene Sr2 in Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Stem rust resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) conferred by the Sr2 gene has remained effective against Puccinia graminis Pers.:Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn. worldwide for more than 50Expand

Mapping of durable adult plant and seedling resistances to stripe rust and stem rust diseases in wheat
Doubled haploid populations of CD87/Katepwa, Cranbrook/Halberd, and Sunco/Tasman were assessed for seedling response to stem rust and stripe rust. The CD87/Katepwa population was also screened asExpand

Evolution of the FAD2-1 fatty acid desaturase 5' UTR intron and the molecular systematics of Gossypium (Malvaceae).
The FAD2-1 microsomal omega-6 desaturase gene contains a large intron ( approximately 1133 bp [base pairs]) in the 5' untranslated region that may participate in gene regulation and, in GOSSYPIUM:,Expand

RFLP-based genetic maps of wheat homoeologous group 7 chromosomes
SummaryRestriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) mapping was attempted using 18 cDNA clones, 14 anonymous and 4 of known function, which had been shown to have homologous DNA sequences on theExpand

Trends in genetic and genome analyses in wheat: a review
The size and structure of the wheat genome makes it one of the most complex crop species for genetic analysis. The development of molecular techniques for genetic analysis, in particular the use ofExpand

Orchestration of avian reproductive effort: an integration of the ultimate and proximate bases for flexibility in clutch size, incubation behaviour, and yolk androgen deposition
How much effort to expend in any one bout of reproduction is among the most important decisions made by an individual that breeds more than once. According to life‐history theory, reproduction isExpand

A Modified TILLING Method for Wheat Breeding
The large genome and polyploidy of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) makes it difficult to identify desirable genetic changes based on phenotypic screening due to gene redundancy. Forward genetics is,Expand
