Detection and integration of quantitative trait loci for grain yield components and oil content in two connected recombinant inbred line populations of high-oil maize
Improvement in grain yield is an important objective in high-oil maize breeding. In this study, one high-oil maize inbred was crossed with two normal maize inbreds to produce two connectedExpand

Identification of agronomically favorable quantitative trait loci alleles from a dent corn inbred Dan232 using advanced backcross QTL analysis and comparison with the F2:3 population in popcorn
Specific traits are an important consideration in plant breeding. In popcorn, inferior agronomic traits could be improved using dent or flint corn backcrossed with popcorn. In this study, we usedExpand

QTL identification of grain protein concentration and its genetic correlation with starch concentration and grain weight using two populations in maize (Zea mays L.)
Protein is one of the three main storage chemical components in maize grains, and is negatively correlated with starch concentration (SC). Our objective was to analyse the influence of geneticExpand

Verification of QTL for Grain Starch Content and Its Genetic Correlation with Oil Content Using Two Connected RIL Populations in High-Oil Maize
Grain oil content is negatively correlated with starch content in maize in general. In this study, 282 and 263 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) developed from two crosses between one high-oil maizeExpand

Three main genetic regions for grain development revealed through QTL detection and meta-analysis in maize
Grain weight is one of the three direct yield components, being developed through a dynamic process of grain filling in maize. In this study, 258 recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross betweenExpand

ATM mediates repression of DNA end-degradation in an ATP-dependent manner.
Ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) is a PI3-kinase-like kinase (PIKK) associated with DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair and cell cycle control. We have previously reported comparable efficienciesExpand

Molecular cloning, sequence and expression analysis of ZmArf2, a maize ADP-ribosylation factor
A full-length cDNA encoding a maize GTP-binding protein of the ADP-ribosylation factor family was cloned by suppression subtractive hybridization and an in silico cloning approach. The cDNA was 938Expand

A splice site mutation in shrunken1-m causes the shrunken 1 mutant phenotype in maize
Endosperm development plays an important role in the determination of grain weight in maize. In this context, a spontaneous recessive shrunken kernel mutant, shrunken1-m (sh1-m), identified fromExpand
