  • We measured the level of VRN-B1 transcripts within near-isogenic lines of Triticum aestivum cultivar ‘Bezostaya 1’ carrying two VRN-B1 alleles from cultivars ‘Saratovskaya 29’ and ‘Diamant 2’ (VRN-B1c and VRN-B1a, respectively). Both lines have similar kinetics of VRN-B1 transcript accumulation at the third to fifth leaf stages. However, quantitative PCR analysis at the third leaf stage showed that the VRN-B1c allele was transcribed 10 times faster than the VRN-B1a allele. The F1 hybrid between… CONTINUE READING
