Linolenic acid (LN) in soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) seed mainly contributes to the undesirable odors and flavors commonly associated with poor oil quality. LN deposition at various stages of soybean seed development had not been reported by 2010. The objects of this study were (1) to identify and measure quantitative trait loci (QTL) underlying LN content(More)
Soybean fatty acids (FAs) are major sources of vegetable oil in the world. The FA composition of soybean is associated with the quality and nutritional value of its oil and food products. The polyunsaturated FAs, particularly linolenic acid (LN), are prone to oxidation by lipoxygenase isozymes and negatively affect the flavor and shelf-life of soybean(More)
Broad tolerance to phytophthora root rot (PRR) caused by Phytophthora sojae has become an important goal for the improvement of soybean (Glycine max) because of the rapid spread of races that defeat the available resistance genes. The aim of this research was to identify the location of quantitative trait loci (QTL) in ‘Conrad’, a soybean cultivar with(More)
Soybean white mold (SWM), caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum ((Lib.) W. Phillips), is currently considered to be the second most important cause of soybean yield loss due to disease. Research is needed to identify SWM-resistant germplasm and gain a better understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of SWM resistance in soybean. Stem pigmentation after(More)
Vitamin E (VE) in soybean seed has value for foods, medicines, cosmetics, and animal husbandry. Selection for higher VE contents in seeds along with agronomic traits was an important goal for many soybean breeders. In order to map the loci controlling the VE content, F5-derived F6 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) were advanced through single-seed-descent(More)
A cDNA library enriched for mRNAs encoding ESTs that increased in abundance during short days was constructed by SSH from leaf tissues of a photoperiod sensitive soybean. The proteins predicted to be encoded by the mRNAs were inferred to be involved in diverse functions. A full-length mRNA that encoded a soybean ortholog of the transcription factor RAV was(More)
Phytophthora root rot (PRR) of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is the second most important cause of yield loss by disease in North America, surpassed only by soybean cyst nematode (Wrather et al. in Can J Plant Pathol 23:115–121, 2001). Tolerance can provide economically useful disease control, conditioning partial resistance of soybean to PRR. The aims(More)
Germin and germin-like proteins constitute a ubiquitous family of plant proteins. A role of some family members in defense against pathogen attack had been proposed based on gene regulation studies and transgenic approaches. Soybean (G. max L. Merr.) germin genes had not been characterized at the molecular and functional levels. In the present study,(More)
Soybean aphid (Aphis glycines Matsumura) results in severe yield loss of soybean in many soybean-growing countries of the world. A few loci have been previously identified to be associated with the aphid resistance in soybean. However, none of them was via isoflavone-mediated antibiosis process. The aim of the present study was to conduct genetic analysis(More)
Present-day soybeans consist of elite cultivars and landraces (Glycine max, fully domesticated (FD)), annual wild type (Glycine soja, nondomesticated (ND)), and semi-wild type (semi-domesticated (SD)). FD soybean originated in China, although the details of its domestication history remain obscure. More than 500 diverse soybean accessions were sequenced(More)
