With the aim of dissecting the genetic determinants of flowering time, vernalization response, and photoperiod sensitivity, we mapped the candidate genes for Vrn-H2 and Vrn-H1 in a facultative × winter barley mapping population and determined their relationships with flowering time and vernalization via QTL analysis. The Vrn-H2 candidate ZCCT-H genes were(More)
Within the HEALTHGRAIN diversity screening program, the variation in the content of dietary fiber and components thereof in different types of wheat was studied. The wheat types were winter (131 varieties) and spring (20 varieties) wheats (both Triticum aestivum L., also referred to as common wheats), durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf., 10 varieties), spelt(More)
Ten rye varieties grown in one location were analyzed for their contents of dietary fiber (arabinoxylan and beta-glucan) and phytochemicals (folate, tocols, phenolic acids, alkylresorcinols, and sterols). The varieties included old and modern varieties from five European countries. Significant differences were observed in the contents of all phytochemicals(More)
One hundred and fifty bread wheat lines and 50 other lines of small-grain cereals (spelt, durum wheat, Triticum monococcum, Triticum dicoccum, oats, rye, and barley) were selected for diversity in their geographical origin, age, and characteristics. They were grown on a single site in Hungary in 2004-2005, harvested, milled, and analyzed for a range of(More)
Ten different barley varieties grown in one location were studied for their content of tocols, folate, plant sterols, alkylresorcinols, and phenolic acids, as well as dietary fiber components (arabinoxylan and beta-glucan). The samples included hulled and hull-less barley types and types with normal, high-amylose, and waxy starch. The aim was to study the(More)
Bánkúti 1201, an old Hungarian wheat variety with special quality traits, was analysed to determine the relationships between its storage protein composition and superior quality-attributes for breadmaking. Based on the storage protein composition, the variety appears to have the nature of a population, containing several genotypes with different gluten(More)
A large and diverse material collection of whole grain wheat samples (n=129) was analysed for total dietary fibre (TDF) content and composition, including fructan (11.5-15.5%). Correlations between the dietary fibre components, associated bioactive components (e.g. tocols, sterols, phenolic acids and folates) and agronomic properties previously determined(More)
Grain dietary fiber content in wheat not only affects its end use and technological properties including milling, baking and animal feed but is also of great importance for health benefits. In this study, integration of association genetics (seven detected loci on chromosomes 1B, 3A, 3D, 5B, 6B, 7A, 7B) and meta-QTL (three consensus QTL on chromosomes 1B,(More)
The levels and compositions of a range of phytochemicals (sterols, tocols, avenanthramides, folates, phenolic acids) and dietary fiber components were determined in five oat cultivars (four husked and one naked) grown on a single site in 2005. The total levels of tocols, phenolic acids, and avenanthramides varied by over 2-fold between cultivars, but less(More)
Given the important role that starch plays in food and non-food uses of many crops, particularly wheat, efforts are being made to manipulate its composition through modification of the amylose/amylopectin ratio. Approaches used to achieve this goal include the manipulation of the genes involved in the starch biosynthetic pathway using natural or induced(More)
