Epidemiologic studies suggest an increasing prevalence of celiac disease and nonceliac gluten/wheat sensitivity. With wheat proteins being the main triggers, changes in wheat protein composition are discussed as potential cause. The goals of breeding towards increased yield and resistance might have inadvertently contributed to a higher immunostimulatory potential of modern compared to old wheat cultivars. Therefore, agronomic characteristics, protein content and gluten composition of 60 German… 
Characterization of 150 Wheat Cultivars by LC-MS-Based Label-Free Quantitative Proteomics Unravels Possibilities to Design Wheat Better for Baking Quality and Human Health
Using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry-based label-free quantitative (LFQ) proteomics of aqueous flour extracts, 756 proteins were determined across 150 wheat cultivars grown in three environments, however, only 303 proteins were stably expressed across all environments in at least one cultivar and only 89 proteins thereof across all 150 cultivars underlines the large influence of environmental conditions on the expression of many proteins.
Fingerprinting of wheat protein profiles for improved distinction between wheat cultivars and species
Background and objectives Wheat protein composition is commonly characterized by reversed‐phase (RP)‐HPLC‐UV after extraction of albumins/globulins, gliadins (ω5‐, ω1,2‐, α‐, and γ‐gliadins), and
Allelic Variation at Glutenin Loci (Glu-1, Glu-2 and Glu-3) in a Worldwide Durum Wheat Collection and Its Effect on Quality Attributes
Allelic frequencies at the three main loci changed over the 1915–2020 period changed and gluten strength increased from 1970 to 2020 coinciding with the allelic changes observed.
Pro-Inflammatory Effect of Gliadins and Glutenins Extracted from Different Wheat Cultivars on an In Vitro 3D Intestinal Epithelium Model
The modern wheat proteins, with gluten polymorphism relatedness and increased GS, were shown to be more cytotoxic and immunogenic than the landrace wheat proteins.
Genetic architecture underlying the expression of eight α-amylase trypsin inhibitors
Key message Wheat cultivars largely differ in the content and composition of ATI proteins, but heritability was quite low for six out of eight ATIs. The genetic architecture of ATI proteins is built
Split Nitrogen Application Rates for Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Yield and Grain N Using the CSM-CERES-Wheat Model
Crop simulation models can be effective tools to assist with optimization of resources for a particular agroecological zone. The goal of this study was to determine the influence of N rates with
Do ancient wheats contain less gluten than modern bread wheat, in favour of better health?
Abstract Popular media messaging has led to increased public perception that gluten‐containing foods are bad for health. In parallel, ‘ancient grains’ have been promoted with claims that they contain


Characterization of gluten proteins and celiac disease-related immunogenic epitopes in the Triticeae: cereal domestication and breeding contributed to decrease the content of gliadins and gluten
Wheat proteins are important for the physico-chemical properties of bread-dough and contribute to the protein intake in the human diet. In certain individuals, an immunological reactivity of the
Presence of celiac disease epitopes in modern and old hexaploid wheat varieties: wheat breeding may have contributed to increased prevalence of celiac disease
Comparing the genetic diversity of gluten proteins for the presence of two CD epitopes in 36 modern European wheat varieties and in 50 landraces suggests that modern wheat breeding practices may have led to an increased exposure toCD epitopes.
In vitro digestibility of proteins from historical and modern wheat cultivars.
Differences in protein digestibility among wheat cultivars that may have important implications in human nutrition are identified and further investigation is required to determine the specific characteristics that differentiate high and low digestibility wheat cultivar.
Split Nitrogen Application Improves Wheat Baking Quality by Influencing Protein Composition Rather Than Concentration
N splitting is more effective in improving wheat quality than the increase in the N rate by late N, which offers the potential to cut down N fertilization rates in wheat production systems.
Grain number and grain yield distribution along the spike remain stable despite breeding for high yield in winter wheat
This comparison revealed that breeding increased grain number and yield uniformly along the spike without changing relative yield input of individual spikelets, thereby, maintaining the general spike architecture.
Harnessing Diversity in Wheat to Enhance Grain Yield, Climate Resilience, Disease and Insect Pest Resistance and Nutrition Through Conventional and Modern Breeding Approaches
New technologies of high-throughput phenotyping, genome sequencing and genomic selection are promising approaches to maximize progeny screening and selection to accelerate the genetic gains in breeding more productive varieties.
Isolation and characterization of gluten protein types from wheat, rye, barley and oats for use as reference materials
A comprehensive strategy to isolate gluten protein fractions and gluten protein types (GPT) from wheat, rye, barley and oat flours was developed to obtain well-defined RM for clinical assays and gluten-free compliance testing.
