An iAc/Ds gene and enhancer trapping system for insertional mutagenesis in rice.
We evaluated a two-component transposon iAc/Ds system for generating a library of insertional mutants in rice. The constructs used have gene or enhancer trapping properties, plasmid rescue andExpand

Activities of Enzymes for Sucrose-Starch Conversion in Developing Endosperm of Rice and Their Association with Grain Filling in Extra-Heavy Panicle Types
Abstract Rice cultivars with numerous spikelets per panicle (extra-heavy panicle types) frequently fail to exhibit their high yield potential due to low grain filling. Existing genetic variation inExpand

Change of sucrose synthase activity in developing endosperm of rice cultivars
Sucrose synthase (SS, EC 2.4.1.13) in rice (Oryza sativa L.) endosperm acts as the first step in the sucrose-starch conversion pathway and is thought to have some relation to photosynthateExpand

New Sweet Potato Line having low Gelatinization Temperature and altered Starch Structure
A new sweet potato breeding line, Kanto 116, was developed, featuring low gelatinization temperature and an altered starch fine structure. Starch granules from Kanto 116 showed an abnormal morphologyExpand

Heritability for Grain Size of Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Estimated from Parent-Offspring Correlation and Selection Response
In order to examine the selection efficiency of rice grain size, the narrow-sense heritability was estimated for grain length and grain width from parent-offspring correlation and selection responseExpand

Associations among Characters Related to Yield Sink Capacity in Space‐Planted Rice
Yield sink capacity, a maximum size of sink organs to be harvested, has been one of the objectives in crop breeding for increasing yield. This study investigated associations among characters relatedExpand

Selection Responses for the Characters Related to Yield Sink Capacity of Rice
Yield sink capacity, the maximum size of sink organs to be harvested, is an important target in breeding for high-yielding cultivars. Using two sets of F 2 and F 2:3 populations of rice (Oryza sativaExpand

Accumulation of Dry Matter and Nitrogen in Low Protein Barley cv. Karl and its Offsprings
In Japan, protein content of malting barley is required to be between 9.5% and 11.5% by brewing industry, but the farmer's product of dominant cultivars often shows more than the upper limit of theExpand
