Lipoxygenases (LOXs) are key enzymes catalyzing the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, and play an important role in grain storage, seed vigor and bread-making. In this study, we report cloning and characterization of TaLOX3, the homolog gene of barley LoxB, from common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The full-length cDNA sequence of TaLOX3 had an open(More)
A novel chimeric high-molecular-weight (HMW) glutenin subunit gene from a new common wheat line W958 (2n = 6x = 42) was isolated and characterized. SDS–PAGE analysis revealed that this glutenin subunit has similar electrophoretic mobility to 1Dx5, so it was designated 1Dx5′. Genomic DNA from W958 was amplified and a 2,505-bp fragment was obtained. The 1Dx5′(More)
The low molecular weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) are the major components of glutenins and are important for the end-use quality of wheat. Five novel LMW-GS genes (designated as LMW-Jiachazharen, LMW-Bangdadongmai-3, LMW-Jiachaaigan, LMW-Maoyintumai and LMW-Rikezehongmai) were isolated from Tibetan wheat landraces. The coding regions of LMW-Jiachazharen,(More)
Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum Gaertn.) is increasingly considered as an important functional food material because of its rich nutraceutical compounds. Reserve starch is the major component of tartary buckwheat seed. However, the gene sequences and the molecular mechanism of tartary buckwheat starch synthesis are unknown so far. In this study, the(More)
Lemnaceae (commonly called duckweed) is an aquatic plant ideal for quantitative analysis in plant sciences. Several species of this family represent the smallest and fastest growing flowering plants. Different ecotypes of the same species vary in their biochemical and physiological properties. Thus, selecting of desirable ecotypes of a species is very(More)
