Screening of worldwide cowpea collection to drought tolerant at a germination stage

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of drought on seed germination and seedling emergence of cowpea genotypes, in order to screen the most tolerant genotypes. in Scientia Horticulturae, Volume 247: 107-115. Leia o trabalho completo aqui.

Unravelling the nutriproteomics of chickpea (Cicer arietinum) seeds.

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is an essential grain for human consumption owing to its high protein content, nutritional quality and energy-efficient production. The aim of this study was to compare the protein extracts of 24 chickpea genotypes by biochemically characterising the storage proteins. in Crop & Pasture Science, 68:1041–1051.

Biochemical, physiological and genetic analysis of aluminum tolerance of different rye species.

Rye (Secale cereale L.) is one of the most Al-tolerant cereal with a valuable genetic background for breeding purposes. Wild relatives (Secale spp.) have great importance once they can provide new sources of genes related to this trait. Different cellular disorders possibly related to Al tolerance/toxicity were observed through histochemical root staining methods in cultivated...

Characterization, genetic diversity, phylogenetic relationships, and expression of the aluminum tolerance MATE1 gene in Secale species.

The cDNA sequences, phylogenetic relationships, Al-tolerance, citrate exudation, and expression of the ScMATE1 gene were analyzed in several cultivars and wild species/subspecies of the Secale genus. in Biol Plant. 62 (1):109–120. Leia o trabalho completo aqui.

Oxidative Metabolism of Rye (Secale cereale L.) after Short Term Exposure to Aluminum: Uncovering the Glutathione-Ascorbate Redox Network.

At early development stages the underling physiological and biochemical mechanisms to tolerate Al passes through modulation of ascorbate–glutathione enzymes, essentially MDHAR and DHAR in a genotype-dependent manner. in Frontiers in plant science 7: 685. Leia o trabalho completo aqui.

Genomic reshuffling in advanced lines of hexaploid tritordeum.

Genomic restructuring was detected in newly synthesized tritordeum by molecular and cytogenetic tools. Genomic stability is expected for advanced tritordeum lines (HchHchAABB; 2n = 42) with multiple generations of self-fertilization. This study intends to confirm or decline this hypothesis by characterizing three advanced tritordeum lines and their parental species using cytogenetics, inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR)...

Use of the synthetic Oligo-pTa535 and Oligo-pAs1 probes for identification of Hordeum chilense-origin chromosomes in hexaploid. tritordeum.

In this study, we hybridized, for the first time, the Oligo-pTa535 and Oligo-pAs1 probes on mitotic chromosomes of hexaploid tritordeum using ND-FISH. Tritordeum (HchHchAABB) is the synthetic amphiploid resultant from crosses between wild barley (HchHch) and cultivated durum wheat (AABB). in Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution 63(6):945-951.
