Correlations between concentrations of cell wall components (CWCs) in the leaf sheath and stalk and resistance to stalk tunneling by the European corn borer (ECB) [Ostrinia nubilalis (Hubner)] have been reported in some maize (Zea mays L.) populations. Evaluations of resistance to ECB stalk tunneling (ECB-ST) and concentrations of neutral detergent fi ber (NDF), acid detergent fi ber (ADF), and acid detergent lignin (ADL) have been performed on recombinant inbred lines (RILs) developed from the… Expand

Relationships between Stalk Resistance and Corn Borers, Agronomic Traits, and Cell Wall Hydroxycinnamates in a Set of Recombinant Inbred Lines from a Maize MAGIC Population
TLDR
Results indicated that resistant lines showed precocity, low grain moisture at harvest, and reduced plant height, thus, selecting for resistance may be detrimental for yield, and a breeding strategy directly targeting grain yield in order to tolerate corn borer attack would be the recommended one.

Maize Combined Insect Resistance Genomic Regions and Their Co-localization With Cell Wall Constituents Revealed by Tissue-Specific QTL Meta-Analyses
TLDR
Stem insect resistance MQTL display several co-localization between fiber and hydroxycinnamate components corroborating the hypothesis of cross-linking between these components that provide mechanical resistance to insect attacks and highlighting the existence of combined-insect resistance genomic regions in maize.

Improving resistance to the European corn borer: a comprehensive study in elite maize using QTL mapping and genome-wide prediction
Key messageThe efficiency of marker-assisted selection for native resistance to European corn borer stalk damage can be increased when progressing from a QTL-based towards a genome-wideExpand
Genetic Architecture of Spotted Stem Borer Resistance in Sorghum As Inferred From Qtl Mapping and Synteny with the Maize Genome
TLDR
Significant association was observed between various agronomic and morphological traits with resistance component traits such as plant height with stem tunneling, deadheart incidence with time to 50% flowering, plant color with leaf damage score and overall resistance score and recovery resistance score with both plant height and number of nodes. Expand
Mapping of QTL for resistance to the Mediterranean corn borer attack using the intermated B73 × Mo17 (IBM) population of maize
TLDR
The objective of this work was to locate QTL for resistance to stem tunneling and kernel damage by MCB in the IBM population and to facilitate the QTL pyramiding and the positional cloning of the detected QTL. Expand
QTL mapping of tropical maize grain components associated with maize weevil resistance.
TLDR
Nine regions were common between QTL associated with MW susceptibility and cell wall bound compounds, suggesting a strong genetic association with MW resistance in tropical maize. Expand
Mapping of QTL associated with maize weevil resistance in tropical maize
TLDR
Grain damage, grain weight losses, MW susceptibility index, and numbers of adult progeny (AP) were evaluated on grain from F 2 lines across two environments and Quantitative trait loci associated with MW resistance were analyzed. Expand
Quantitative Trait Loci for Asian Corn Borer Resistance in Maize Population Mc37×Zi330
TLDR
Genes responsible for DIMBOA biosynthesis are in chromosome bin 4.01 and may increase the observed resistance to Asian corn borer leaf feeding, and may share a common mechanism with European corn borers. Expand
Elucidating the multifunctional role of the cell wall components in the maize exploitation
TLDR
Evidence that there is no maize cell wall ideotype among the tested for optimal performance for various uses, and maize plants should be specifically bred for each particular application is found. Expand
Quantitative trait loci mapping in maize for resistance to larger grain borer
TLDR
Overall, the studies show that breeding for resistance to LGB is possible and quantitative trait loci associated with LGB resistance in tropical maize are mapped. Expand

Genetic relationships between resistance to stalk-tunneling by the European corn borer and cell-wall components in maize population B73×B52
TLDR
It is suggested that while CWC contribute to ECB resistance in this population, other mechanisms and other genes also are involved, and several QTL contributing to the negative correlations between ECB tunneling and CWC in the leaf-sheaths mapped to similar positions as QTL detected in tropical maize populations for resistance to leaf-feeding by Diatraea grandiosella Dyar and DiatRAea saccharalis Fabricus. Expand
QTL Mapping of Resistance to Stalk Tunneling by the European Corn Borer in RILs of Maize Population B73 × De81
TLDR
The lack of consistent QTL detection across environments is a common characteristic among studies of ECB tunneling and underscores a major problem of breeding for resistance. Expand
Quantitative trait loci for cell wall components in recombinant inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.) II: leaf sheath tissue
TLDR
The low to moderate genotypic correlations for the same CWC across leaf sheath and stalk tissues indicate that some genes for CWCs may only be expressed in certain tissues, and some are linked to candidate genes for cell wall carbohydrate biosynthesis. Expand
Relationship between Plant Composition and European Corn Borer Resistance in Three Maize Populations
TLDR
In general, there was an association between plant cell wall composition and ECB resistance, but genetic background influenced the relationship. Expand
Quantitative trait loci for cell-wall components in recombinant inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.) I: stalk tissue
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for fiber and lignin in the maize stalk and compare them with QTLs from other populations, and to useful to breeding efforts aimed at improving the quality of maize silage. Expand
QTL Mapping in Testcrosses of Flint Lines of Maize: III. Comparison across Populations for Forage Traits
TLDR
QTL results were poorly consistent among crosses within the flint heterotic pool, suggesting that prior to marker-assisted selection, QTL mapping must be performed separately for each population. Expand
Distributions for European corn borer (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) resistance ratings of S1 lines from BS9 corn
TLDR
Genetic variance, entry mean heritability estimates, and frequency distributions indicated that further selection for first- generation resistance is not necessary, but further progress would be desirable for second-generation resistance in ‘BS9’. Expand
Forage quality variation among maize inbreds: in vitro digestibility and cell-wall components
TLDR
Forage maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids with improved feeding value might be produced if breeders had better information about inbred variation in maize for stover quality, and the relationship between IVDDM and cell-wall components was determined. Expand
QTL Mapping for Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisin Contamination Resistance in Two Maize Populations
TLDR
QTL mapping was used to study the genetic relationships between resistances to ear rot and fumonisin contamination and to investigate consistency of QTL acrosspopulations to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for resistance to Fusarium ear rot, and appeared consistent for both traits across both populations.

Concentration of two 1,4-benzoxazinones in dent corn at various stages of development of the plant and its relation to resistance of the host plant to the European corn borer
TLDR
The high concentration of DIMBOA in seedling corn may explain the apparent resistance of young corn to the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Hubner). Expand
