Improving the yellow pigment content of bread wheat flour by selecting the three homoeologous copies of Psy1


The yellow pigment content (YPC) of endosperm affects the quality and nutritional value of wheat grain products. Major quantitative trait loci (QTL) for endosperm YPC have been repeatedly mapped on chromosomes 7A and 7B in durum and bread wheats. The genes coding for phytoene synthase (PSY1), which is involved in the biosynthesis of carotenoids, generally… (More)
