Cover for Genetic analysis and QTL mapping for cytosolic glutamine synthetase (GS) and germination traits in maize grain.

To determine (1) the correlation among imbibition time at which 50% of maize seeds germinate (T50), 1000-kernel weight (TKW) and glutamine synthetase [glutamate-ammonia ligase] (GS) activity and (2) the quantitative trait locus (QTL) for the traits, the following investigations were carried out:...

Cover for Involvement of ABA and GAs in the regulation of dormancy in developing sorghum seeds.

The participation of the hormone abscisic acid (ABA) in the control of dormancy of developing seeds is well documented for a number of species. It has recently been demonstrated that the degree of dormancy of developing sorghum seeds also depends on the extent to which ABA action is counterbalanced ...

Cover for Molecular genetic analysis of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Arabidopsis</i> seed quality.

Improvement of seed quality may greatly benefit from the characterization of genes involved in seed development and seed germination. To study the effect of genes on seed quality, a comparison was made among genetically different lines. Ideally, the genetic difference should be known at the DNA...
