Soybean meal is the most commonly used protein source in animal feeds. Among the undesirable attributes of soybean meal is the high level of β-mannan, which was determined to be detrimental to the growth performance of animals. β-Mannan is a type of hemicellulose in the plant cell wall and can be hydrolyzed by endo-β-mannanase. The goal of this study is to(More)
Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is the most devastating pathogen of soybean. Information about the molecular basis of soybean-SCN interactions is needed to assist future development of effective management tools against this pathogen. Toward this end, soybean transcript abundance was measured using the Affymetrix Soybean Genome Array in a susceptible and a(More)
Salicylic acid plays a critical role in activating plant defence responses after pathogen attack. Salicylic acid methyltransferase (SAMT) modulates the level of salicylic acid by converting salicylic acid to methyl salicylate. Here, we report that a SAMT gene from soybean (GmSAMT1) plays a role in soybean defence against soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera(More)

Introduction Cultivar improvements in yield have allowed the soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] to become the most important source of vegetable protein and oil in the world and the second most important crop in the U.S. In 2012, the estimated seed yield of soybean in the U.S. was 82 million metric tons harvested from 31.2 million hectares of land (Soy Stats,(More)
