Analysis of linear and nonlinear genotype × environment interaction
The usual analysis of genotype × environment interaction (G × E) is based on the linear regression of genotypic performance on environmental changes (e.g., classic stability analysis). This linear model may often lead to lumping together of the non-linear responses to the whole range of...
Analysis of genotype-environment interactions from a genome-wide survey of quantitative trait loci in a barley populationDownload
The presence of genotype-environment interactions (GE) leads to the imperfect genetic correlation between the measurements of the same trait in different environments, thereby limiting the ability of plant breeders to identify superior breeding lines or best cultivars across the environments. We...
Nitrogen (N) is the most important factor limiting crop productivity worldwide. The ability of plants to acquire N from applied fertilizers is one of the critical steps limiting the efficient use of nitrogen. To improve N use efficiency, genetically modified plants that overexpress alanine...
The onset of anaerobiosis in barley root tissue (Hordeum vulgare L. cv Himalaya) results in the following metabolic responses. There are rapid increases in the levels of pyruvate, lactate, and ethanol. Malate and succinate concentrations increase over the first 12 h, after which they return to...
In barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) are induced by anaerobiosis in both aleurone layers and roots. Under aerobic conditions, developing seeds of cv Himalaya accumulate ADH activity, which survives seed drying and rehydration. This activity...
Alanine aminotransferase, otherwise called glutamate-pyruvate aminotransferase (GPT), activity increases up to fourfold during several days of anaerobic induction in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) roots, reaching a maximum activity of 13 intemational units per gram fresh weight. This increase in...
