Quantitative trait loci (QTL) controlling traits associated with winterhardiness in barley (field survival, LT50, growth habit, and crown fructan content) were mapped to chromosome 7 in a population of 100 F1-derived doubled haploid lines. The largest QTL effects for all traits were detected in a 21% recombination interval on the long arm of chromosome 7.(More)
Interleukin-2 is an autocrine growth factor for T cells which also activates other cells including B cells and natural killer cells. The subunits of the interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R) lack intrinsic enzymatic activity, but protein tyrosine phosphorylation is a critical event following ligand binding and src family kinases, such as Lck, are known to be(More)
The hordeins comprise the major prolamin storage proteins of barley. Two major and one minor gene families encode these alcohol-soluble proteins. The Hor-2 gene family encoding the B-hordeins has been estimated to contain 15-30 copies. Although several genes encoding B-hordeins have been cloned and sequenced, little is known about the mechanisms responsible(More)
Nine low copy number genomic DNA clones, a ribosomal sequence, and seven cDNA clones were found to identify polymorphisms in cultivated barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). An F2 population consisting of 100 plants was produced from a cross between a high-yielding two-rowed feed barley cultivar and a genetic marker stock homozygous for nine recessive and one(More)
Members of the Janus (JAK) protein tyrosine kinase family including JAK3 have recently emerged as important components in cytokine signal transduction. Mutations of JAK3 have been found in a number of patients who present with severe combined immunodeficiency. To facilitate the further identification of JAK3-SCID patients and to understand the structure of(More)
Two loci containing genes encoding 5S rRNA were mapped on the second and third chromosomes of barley. The two gene clusters located on different chromosomes differed in the length of the nontranscribed spacer separating the 5S rRNA genes. All nontranscribed spacers contained a variable number of trinucleotide tandem repeats. The distribution of 5S genes(More)
Mammalian CBFB encodes a transcription factor (CBF beta) that in combination with CBF alpha 2 binds to specific DNA sequences and regulates expression of a number of hematopoietic genes. CBFB is associated with human leukemias through a chromosome 16 inversion and is essential for definitive hematopoiesis during mouse embryo development. We have isolated a(More)
 In order to identify sequence-tagged sites (STSs) appropriate for recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of barley cultivars ‘Azumamugi’ × ‘Kanto Nakate Gold’, a total of 43 STS primer pairs were generated on the basis of the terminal sequences of barley restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) clones. Forty one of the 43 primer pairs amplified PCR(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) represent the most prevalent class of genetic markers available for linkage disequilibrium or cladistic analyses. PCR primers may be labeled with fluorescent dyes and used to rapidly and accurately differentiate among alleles that are defined by a single-nucleotide differences. Here, we describe the primer-mediated(More)
A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B(+) → K(+)μ(+)μ(-) and B(+) → K(+)e(+)e(-) decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1), recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton(More)
