The vulgare-spelta locus on chromosome 5A of two typical cultivars, Large White emmer and Vernal emmer, of Triticum dicoccum SCHUBL., a species of tetraploid wheat (2n=28. AABB) with keeled glumes and brittle rachis, was genetically studied by crossing them to aneuploid lines of T. aestivum (L.) THELL. ssp. vulgare MK (2n=42, AABBDD). It was found that they have the spelta gene, q Thus, for these two cultivars, a previous assumption, which had been made mainly on the basis of plant morphology… Expand
The origin of spelt and free-threshing hexaploid wheat.
It is proposed that the tetraploid parent of hexaploid wheat was not hulled emmer but a free-threshing form of tetraPloid wheat, which is consistent with spelt being derived from free- threshing hexaPLoid wheat by hybridization of free-Threshing wheat with hulling emmer. Expand
Map-based analysis of the tenacious glume gene Tg-B1 of wild emmer and its role in wheat domestication.
Comparative analysis with maps containing the tenacious glume gene Tg-D1 on chromosome arm 2 DS from Aegilops tauschii revealed that the gene inhibiting threshability in wild emmer was homoeologous to Tg (D1) and therefore designated TG-B1 and therefore provided a foundation for further studies involving Tg/D1, which had profound influences on wheat domestication.

New sources of compact spike morphology determined by the genes on chromosome 5A in hexaploid wheat
This locus Cp1 (Compactplant1) was allelic to C17648 gene located on the chromosome 5AL of tetraploid wheat [Triticum durum Desf.], which will be utilized as new gene resources of compact spike morphology in hexaploids wheat. Expand
Analysis of agronomic and domestication traits in a durum × cultivated emmer wheat population using a high-density single nucleotide polymorphism-based linkage map
Light is shed on the events that shaped wheat domestication, and a high-density SNP map and evaluation of QTL shed light on domestication events in tetraploid wheat and the potential utility of cultivated emmer wheat for durum wheat improvement. Expand
Cloning and characterization of the wheat domestication gene, Q
The hypothesis that a candidate AP2-like gene is Q is confirmed or reject, confirm the dosage and pleiotropic effects attributed to Q, and begin defining the differences between the Q and q alleles are confirmed. Expand
Genetic analysis of threshability and other spike traits in the evolution of cultivated emmer to fully domesticated durum wheat
Analysis of a population of recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross between the durum variety Rusty and the cultivated emmer accession PI 193883 for threshability, rachis fragility, and other spike-related traits provides further insight into the timeline and possible pathways of wheat domestication and evolution that led to the formation of modern day domesticated wheats. Expand
The soft glumes of common wheat are sterile-lemmas as determined by the domestication gene Q
It is found that over expression of Q in common wheat leads to homeotic florets at glume positions, and AP2 genes may play conserved functions in grasses by manipulating vestigial structures, such as floret-derived soft glume in wheat and empty glumes in rice. Expand
Molecular and comparative mapping of genes governing spike compactness from wild emmer wheat
Mapping and sequence analysis indicated that the gene governing spike length and compactness derived from wild emmer could be an ortholog of the barley Cly1/Zeo gene, which research indicates is an AP2-like gene pleiotropically affecting cleistogamy, flowering time, and rachis internode length.
