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...
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...
β-Glucan is a soluble fibre shown to help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol. Incorporation into food, particularly bread, may affect β-glucan’s physicochemical properties and health benefits. The journey of β-glucan through the mixing, fermenting, baking, and storage of bread was...
Ferulic acid constitutes a major constraint to ruminal fibre digestibility. The overall objective of this study was therefore to determine the effects of a first (non-fibrolytic) - or a third (ferulic acid esterase-producing) - generation inoculant on the fermentation characteristics, aerobic...
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...
Genetic mapping and physiological characterization of water-use efficiency in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) on the Canadian PrairiesDownload
Temporal or seasonal water deficit is one of the major factors limiting crop yield on the Canadian Prairies. Empirical knowledge suggests that carbon isotope discrimination (Δ13C), through its negative relationship with water-use efficiency (WUE), is a good index for selecting crop varieties...
Genetic structure, virulence and fungicide sensitivity of Pyrenophora teres f. teres and P. teres f. maculata populations from western CanadaDownload
The fungi Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt) and P. teres f. maculata (Ptm) cause net form net blotch (NFNB) and spot form net blotch (SFNB) of barley, respectively. The genetic structure of a collection of 128 Ptt and 92 Ptm isolates, representing fungal populations from western Canada, was...
