The full-length cDNA (882bp) and DNA (1742bp) sequences encoding a basic transcription factor 3, designated as TaBTF3, were first isolated from common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Subcellular localization studies revealed that the TaBTF3 protein was mainly located in the cytoplasm and nucleus. In TaBTF3-silenced transgenic wheat seedlings obtained using(More)
The cDNA sequences of 26 starch synthesis genes were identified in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), and their transcript levels were measured using quantitative real-time RT-PCR to assess the function of individual genes and the regulatory mechanism in wheat endosperm. The expression patterns of 26 genes in wheat endosperm were classified into three(More)
The full-length cDNA sequence (1158 bp) encoding a ribosomal L5 protein, designated as TaL5, was firstly isolated from common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) using the rapid amplification of cDNA ends method (RACE). The open reading frame (ORF) of TaL5 gene was 906 bp, and its deduced amino acid sequence (301 residues) shared high similarity to those of other(More)
ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase), the key enzyme of starch synthesis in plants, is composed of two small and two large subunits, and has plastidial and cytosolic isoforms. In kernels of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), transcripts for cytosolic (Ta.AGP.S1a) and plastidial (Ta.AGP.S1b) small subunits of AGPase were encoded(More)
With wheat cultivars Yumai 34 (strong-gluten wheat) and Yumai 50 (weak-gluten wheat) as test materials, a field experiment was conducted to study the effects of three irrigation treatments (irrigation at jointing stage, at jointing and grain-filling stages, and at jointing, grain-filling, and pre-maturing stages), three nitrogen application rates (0, 150,(More)
Starch, the most common form of stored carbon in plants, is both the major food source for mankind and important raw material for many industries. It is composed of two types of alpha-1,4-linked glucan polymer: essentially unbranched amylose and regularly branched amylopectin, and synthesized in photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic organs. Starch is(More)
In 2000-2001 and 2001-2002, six representative winter wheat cultivars Yumai 34, Gaomai 8901, Yumai 49, Yumai 70, Luoyang 8716, and Yumai 50 were consecutively grown at five locations (Xinyang, Zhumadian, Xuchang, Wuzhi, and Tangyin) with latitudes varying from 32 degrees N to 36 degrees N in Henan Province, aimed to understand the relationships of winter(More)
This paper studied the effects of combined application of biogas slurry and chemical fertilizer under same N application rate on the quantities of bacteria, actinomycetes and fungi as well as the activities of urease, protease and catalase in winter wheat rhizosphere soil. With the growth of winter wheat, the quantities of test microorganisms and the(More)
Six representative winter wheat cultivars were planted at five locations with the latitude varied from 32 degrees N to 36 degrees N in Henan Province to study the effects of latitude on their grain's protein components. The results showed that with increasing latitude, the contents of albumin and gliadin decreased, while glutenin content, glutenin/gliadin(More)
This paper studied the effects of nitrogen application rate on the soil enzyme activities in the rhizosphere of wheat cultivars Lankaoaizao 8, a large spike genotype, and Yumai 49-198, a small spike genotype, under high yield condition. The results showed that the enzyme activities in rhizosphere soil had similar changing trends with wheat growth. The(More)
