Designing polymorphic ISSR primers in order to study x and y types glutenin subunits in 1D locus controlling favorable baking quality of bread wheat

  Baking quality is one of most important traits in qualitative improvement of bread wheat. Gluten prolamins determine wheat flour quality for different technological processes such as bread making. Among the gluten proteins, High Molecular Glutenin (HMW) group and specially, x-type and y-type subunits of d allele in 1D locus are very valuable in baking quality. In this study, amino acid sequences of x-type...

Somaclonal variation in submergence tolerant rice cultivars and induced diversity evaluation by PCR markers

  Submergence tolerance is an important agronomic trait for rice grown in eastern India; where flash flooding occurs frequently and unpredictably during the monsoons. Generation of somaclones for the two submergence tolerant rice cultivar FR13A and FR43B through gamma irradiation and molecular analysis of the somaclones for the variation in the pyruvate decarboxylase (pdc) gene was investigated. FR43B...

A cold-inducible modifier QTL affecting fertility restoration of WA CMS in rice

  The inheritance of pollen fertility restoration in 2 F2 populations of cross Neda-A X IR36, was studied in normal and cold conditions by means of QTL method. In cold condition the number of fertile plants was reduced in favor of sterility. The distributions of individuals in pollen fertility suggested that fertility restoration was mainly controlled by major genes. The population cultivated in normal...
