Photoperiod response genes play a major role in determining the climatic adaptability of European wheat varieties. Photoperiod insensitivity, in the vast majority of photoperiod insensitive European wheat varieties, is probably determined by a Ppd1 allele originally derived from the old Japanese variety Akakomugi. Analysis of the pleiotropic effects of a Ppd1 allele from the Italian variety Mara shows that, besides accelerating ear emergence time, Ppd1 also reduces plant height, tillering, and… CONTINUE READING
