Infection of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) with the powdery mildew fungus Erysiphe graminis induces a host response that includes the activation of putative defence genes [4]. In order to study function and regulation of such genes we used pathogen-induced cDNA clones [4] as probes to isolate corresponding genes from a wheat geonomic library. We have shown previously that one clone obtained contained a gene, gstA1, encoding a pathogen-inducible glutathione-S-transferase (GST; EC. [1… 
Differential gene expression in leaf tissues between mutant and wild-type genotypes response to late leaf spot in peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.)
The results suggest that down-regulated chloroplast genes, up-regulated WRKY transcription factors, and depressed plant hormones related to plant growth in the M14 might coordinately render the susceptibility though there was a significant high level of PRs.
Comparison of orthologous and paralogous DNA flanking the wheat high molecular weight glutenin genes: sequence conservation and divergence, transposon distribution, and matrix-attachment regions.
Analysis revealed more sequence conservation among orthologous regions than between paralogous regions, with differences mainly owing to transposition events involving putative retrotransposons and several miniature inverted transposable elements (MITEs).
Botanical and Protein Sweeteners
Plant species with unusual taste properties such as bitterness, sourness or sweetness and others with a taste- modifying components; have long been known to man, although their exploitation has been


A pathogen-induced wheat gene encodes a protein homologous to glutathione-S-transferases.
Winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) shows local, induced resistance against the plant-pathogenic fungus Erysiphe graminis f. f. tritici following exposure to the nonpathogen E. g. hordei, and cloned and sequenced a gene corresponding to one of these cDNAs, WIR5, suggesting that the cloned pathogen-induced gene encodes a wheat glutathione-S-transferase.
cDNA cloning, in vitro transcription and partial sequence analysis of mRNAs from winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) with induced resistance to Erysiphe graminis f. sp. tritici
Under normal growth conditions wheat shows 100% non-host resistance to the barley powdery mildew Erysiphe graminis f. sp. hordei (Egh.). Primary inoculation of 7-day-old wheat seedlings with this
DNA sequencing with chain-terminating inhibitors.
A new method for determining nucleotide sequences in DNA is described, which makes use of the 2',3'-dideoxy and arabinon nucleoside analogues of the normal deoxynucleoside triphosphates, which act as specific chain-terminating inhibitors of DNA polymerase.
