Grain hardness (hard or soft kernel texture) is the single most important trait in determining the utilization and marketing of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Puroindoline a and b proteins represent the molecular basis for this trait. This study surveyed the prevalence of puroindoline hardness mutations (alleles) among North American spring and winter wheat varieties with emphasis on those that are historically important. Each variety was assessed for kernel texture using the Single Kernel… Expand
