AbstractKey messageThe research identified rye chromosome 4R arms associated with good pollinator traits, and demonstrated possible use of rye genetic resources to develop elite pollinators for hybrid wheat breeding.Abstract Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) is a predominantly self-pollinating plant which has relatively small-sized anthers and produces a low number of pollen grains. These features limit the suitability of most wheat lines as pollinators for hybrid seed production. One strategy… Expand
Effects of Rht-B1 and Ppd-D1 loci on pollinator traits in wheat
TLDR
The results suggest that combinations of Rht-B1 and Ppd-D1 alleles control multiple pollinator traits and should be major targets of hybrid wheat breeding programs. Expand
Genetic factors associated with favourable pollinator traits in the wheat cultivar Piko.
TLDR
This study provided further evidence for the effects of Rht-D1 and Ppd-B1 loci on multiple pollinator traits and a novel anther extrusion QTL that exhibits segregation distortion. Expand
Genome-Wide Association and Prediction of Male and Female Floral Hybrid Potential Traits in Elite Spring Bread Wheat Genotypes
TLDR
Genomic selection revealed medium to high prediction accuracy ranging between 52% and 92% for the assessed traits with the least and maximum value observed for stigma length and visual anther extrusion, respectively, indicating the feasibility to implement genomic selection to predict the performance of hybrid floral traits with high reliability.

Genome-wide association study for anther length in some elite bread wheat germplasm
TLDR
The genome-wide association study of anther length in 305 elite wheat lines evaluated during 2013–2015 had high heritability, and positive correlations between antherlength and grain weight per spike were observed. Expand
Hybrid breeding in wheat: how shaping floral biology can offer new perspectives.
TLDR
This review summarises existing and novel male sterility systems for wheat hybridisation and considers the genetic resources that can be used to alter wheat's floral development and spike morphology, with a focus on the genetic variation already available. Expand
Chromosomal Localization of Genes Conferring Desirable Agronomic Traits from Wheat-Agropyron cristatum Disomic Addition Line 5113
TLDR
Taken together, chromosomal localization of these desirable genes will facilitate transferring of high-yield and high-resistance genes from A. cristatum into common wheat, and serve as the foundation for the utilization of 5113 in wheat breeding. Expand
Mapping quantitative trait loci for heat tolerance of reproductive traits in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)
TLDR
It is concluded that a limited set of major genes determines differences in performance of reproductive traits under continuous mild heat in tomato, contributing to the fundamental understanding of pollen thermotolerance and may support development of more heat-tolerant tomato varieties. Expand
The Pros and Cons of Rye Chromatin Introgression into Wheat Genome
TLDR
An overview of the benefits and drawbacks of using rye as a source of variability in wheat breeding is presented. Expand

The production and phenotypes of wheat-rye chromosome addition lines
TLDR
It was proposed by O'Mara (1940) that the undesirable features of wheat-rye and other amphidiploids might be overcome by incorporating with the wheat genotype not the whole genome of another species but the smallest part of the genome which was necessary in order to introduce the desired character. Expand
Some aspects of cross-pollination in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). 3. Anther length and number of pollen grains per anther
TLDR
Some relationship appears to exist between number of pollen grains per anther and pollen donor capacity on the field and the knowledge that genotypes with large anthers also produce many pollen grainsper anther facilitates the selection for a high pollen production perAnther. Expand
Phenotypic evaluation of floral and flowering traits with relevance for hybrid breeding in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
TLDR
The results suggest the utility of the developed phenotyping approaches for applied plant breeding and the potential of the traits to assist in the design of the male ideotype for increased cross-fertilization. Expand
The meiotic behaviour, fertility and stability of wheat-rye chromosome addition lines
TLDR
Meiotic regularity, fertility and stability will be shown to show what potential wheat-rye addition lines would have in evolution and the extent to which the components of the genotype must be subjected to mutual adjustment for a balanced organisation to be acquired. Expand
Isolation of wheat-rye 1RS recombinants that break the linkage between the stem rust resistance gene SrR and secalin.
TLDR
Novel tertiary wheat-rye recombinant lines carrying different lengths of rye chromosome arm 1RS are produced by inducing homoeologous recombination between the wheat 1D chromosome and a previously described secondary wheat-rare recombinant, DRA-1. Expand
Pollen Longevity in Wheat, Rye and Triticale
TLDR
The results indicate that the duration of wheat pollen life is adequate for fertilization to occur under conditions normally used in hybrid wheat production, and that Introgression of alien alleles is not necessary. Expand
Intraspecific gene flow in bread wheat as affected by reproductive biology and pollination ecology of wheat flowers
TLDR
Although pollen movement has been observed 1000 m from the source, substantial outcrossing beyond 30 m was not observed andGene flow data could establish an appropriate isolation distance between cultivars and genetically modified (GM) plants or hybrids. Expand
Development and Application of EST-Based Markers Specific for Chromosome Arms of Rye (Secale cereale L.)

  • 2012
TLDR
The results indicated that EST-based markers can effectively be used to detect corresponding rye chromosomes or chromosome arms introgressed into a wheat background, and hence to accelerate the utilization of rye genes in wheat breeding. Expand
Some aspects of cross-pollination in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). 4. Seed set on male sterile plants as influenced by distance from the pollen source, pollinator: Male sterile ratio and width of the male sterile strip
TLDR
In this year the calculated percentage seed set was much higher than that of the previous years (maximum almost 80%), probably as a consequence of more and larger pollinator areas and a more adequate way of establishing the 100% value of seed set. Expand
Cytological analysis and genetic control of rice anther development.
TLDR
The cytological changes of anther development through 14 stages, including cell division, differentiation and degeneration of somatic tissues consisting of four concentric cell layers surrounding and supporting reproductive cells as they form mature pollen grains through meiosis and mitosis are described.
