The introduction of Reduced height (Rht)-B1b and Rht-D1b into bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) varieties was a key component of the ‘green revolution’ and today these alleles are the primary sources of semi-dwarfism in wheat. The Rht-1 loci encode DELLA proteins, which are transcription factors that affect plant growth and stress tolerance. In bread wheat, Rht-D1b and Rht-B1b influence resistance to the disease Fusarium Head Blight. To identify Rht-1 variants, locus specific primers were… CONTINUE READING
