QTL identification and microphenotype characterisation of the developmentally regulated yellow rust resistance in the UK wheat cultivar Guardian
Yellow rust (causal agent: Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici) resistance in the UK wheat cultivar Guardian is developmentally regulated, resistance increasing as the plant matures. Yellow rustExpand
The genetic characterisation of stripe rust resistance in the German wheat cultivar Alcedo
Stripe rust resistance in the German winter wheat cv. Alcedo has been described as durable, the resistance having remained effective when grown extensively in Germany and Eastern Europe between 1975Expand
High glucosinolate broccoli: a delivery system for sulforaphane
The development of hybrid broccoli genotypes with enhanced levels of 4-methylsulphinylbutyl glucosinolate, the precursor of anticarcinogenic isothiocyanate sulforaphane (SF), by introgressing genomicExpand
Histopathology provides a phenotype by which to characterize stripe rust resistance genes in wheat
The expression of the resistance phenotypes of QPst.jic-2D and QPst.jic-4B, two quantitative trait loci (QTL) for stripe rust resistance in wheat cv. Alcedo, were assessed relative to plant growthExpand
High-resolution mapping and new marker development for adult plant stripe rust resistance QTL in the wheat cultivar Kariega
Three major quantitative trait loci (QTL) contribute to the durable adult plant stripe rust resistance in the high-quality bread wheat cultivar Kariega; QYr.sgi-2B.1 and QYr.sgi-4A.1, and theExpand
Cellular and transcriptional responses of wheat during compatible and incompatible race-specific interactions with Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici.
The initial stages of Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (the causal agent of yellow rust in wheat) infection triggered a hypersensitive cell death (HCD) response in both compatible and Yr1-mediatedExpand
Stripe rust resistance genes in the UK winter wheat cultivar Claire
Stripe rust resistance in the winter wheat cultivar Claire had remained effective in the UK and Europe since its release in 1999 and consequently has been used extensively in wheat breeding programs.Expand
Genetic variation within and between winter wheat genotypes from Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Europe as determined by nucleotide-binding-site profiling.
The genetic diversity within wheat breeding programs across Turkey and Kazakhstan was compared with a selection of European cultivars that represented the genetic diversity across eight EuropeanExpand
The Barley stripe mosaic virus system used for virus-induced gene silencing in cereals differentially affects susceptibility to fungal pathogens in wheat.
Barley stripe mosaic virus (BSMV) has emerged as a vector for virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) in cereals, having been used to study a number of genes involved in resistance in both wheat andExpand
Genomic and genetic analysis of the wheat race-specific yellow rust resistance gene Yr5
Abstract Yellow rust, caused by the biotrophic fungus Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst ), is a significant foliar disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum) and a major target for
