Involvement of the octadecanoid pathway in bluegreen aphid resistance in Medicago truncatula.
TLDR
Results strongly suggest that the octadecanoid pathway is important for this naturally derived aphid resistance trait.
Aphid Resistance in Medicago truncatula Involves Antixenosis and Phloem-Specific, Inducible Antibiosis, and Maps to a Single Locus Flanked by NBS-LRR Resistance Gene Analogs1
TLDR
Genetic resistance to Acyrthosiphon kondoi Shinji (bluegreen aphid or blue alfalfa aphid) has been identified in Medicago truncatula Gaert.
A single gene, AIN, in Medicago truncatula mediates a hypersensitive response to both bluegreen aphid and pea aphid, but confers resistance only to bluegreen aphid
TLDR
AIN-mediated resistance presents a novel opportunity to use a model plant and model aphid to study the role of the HR in defence responses to phloem-feeding insects.
Food system disruption: initial livelihood and dietary effects of COVID-19 on vegetable producers in India
TLDR
It is found that a majority of farmers report negative impacts on production, sales, prices and incomes, and higher vulnerability of female farmers in terms of both livelihoods and diet, and differential effects on smaller and larger farms, meaning different farms may require different types of support in order to continue to function.
Biofortification of mungbean (Vigna radiata) as a whole food to enhance human health.
TLDR
Mungbean protein and carbohydrate are easily digestible and create less flatulence than proteins derived from other legumes, and biofortification of existing mungbean varieties has great potential for enhancing the nutritional quality of diets in South and Southeast Asia.
Drought or/and Heat-Stress Effects on Seed Filling in Food Crops: Impacts on Functional Biochemistry, Seed Yields, and Nutritional Quality
TLDR
Findings in various food crops are highlighted, showing how their seed composition is drastically impacted at various cellular levels due to drought and heat stresses, applied separately, or in combination.
Genomic resources in mungbean for future breeding programs
TLDR
This review paper covers the research progress on molecular and genomics approaches and the current status of breeding programs that have developed to move toward the ultimate goal of mungbean improvement.
SSR analysis of the Medicago truncatula SARDI core collection reveals substantial diversity and unusual genotype dispersal throughout the Mediterranean basin
TLDR
Analysis of the genetic diversity and relationships between randomly selected individuals in the SARDI collection shows the collection to be highly diverse, exhibiting an average of 25 SSR alleles per locus, with over 90% of individuals showing discrete genotypes.
Detection of quantitative trait loci for mungbean yellow mosaic India virus (MYMIV) resistance in mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) in India and Pakistan
Yellow mosaic disease (YMD) is one of the major diseases affecting mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek). In this study, we report the mapping of the quantitative trait locus (QTL) for mungbean
