Glaucousness is a visual trait related to the colour of the photosynthetic surface and hence it can be easily selected. It is associated both with the deposition and orientation of wax platelets on the cuticle of the photosynthetic surface. It is known that the glaucous leaf character is determined by the W1 gene, and Iw1 and Iw1 DIC genes from Triticum dicoccoides, which act as an epistatic inhibitor to a glaucousness. The aim of the present study was to map W1, Iw1 and Iw1 DIC from T… CONTINUE READING
